We are very pleased to offer a truly stunning and very rare 1973 Austin Mini 1000 Auto. This matching numbers example is finished in one the best period colours of all, Teal blue with a wonderful contrasting Lime flower interior. This time warp example offers the pure seventies Mini driving experience as soon as you sit in the drivers seat and get out on the open road. It has only covered 33k in 50 years with three previous owners and is accompanied with its original passport to service book, handbook and receipts from over the years. It has a wonderful service receipt from Athol garage for an oil and filter change at 903 miles. It still has its original dealer tax disc holder and Triplex windscreen sticker. It was registered new on the Isle of Man by Athol garage and remained there until 2005. Since then it has been cherished and cared for which is supported through invoices. It features all of its correct numbers, including commission number, FE number, body and floor pan tag.
On the road this Mini is a real joy to drive. You will instantly smile. The low mileage engine is virtually silent with strong oil pressure and the Automatic gearbox shifts smoothly, the ride and handling with the ten inch wheels completes the experience. Power delivery is smooth and this Mini keeps up with modern traffic and offers the true go-kart experience, put in in drive and off you go.
The interior is total time warp and is of the best original interiors I have seen. Nothing has been changed over the years including the original carpets and roof liner and if you are a big fan of seventies Minis as I am then you will fully appreciate its amazing condition. It has its 3 clock binnacle, original steering wheel and an optional extra rear heated screen.
This Mini has a fantastic original shell and I can find no signs of any previous welding or panel replacement. The floors, sills and subframes are all in very good condition and still body coloured. The drivers side floor pan still has the original body tag and the engine bay is very well detailed and presented. It has been painted many years ago to a very good standard and it presents very well indeed with a period paint finish, it certainly has been drawing attention wherever I have taken it. It has also also been converted to run on unleaded. It is ready to be driven and enjoyed as much as I have and if space allowed I would be keeping this one.
The Mini is fully serviced, checked and driven and will be supplied with a full MOT. It is also MOT and Tax exempt.
