This is an incredibly clean and unmolested 1971 Mini 1000, originally from Canada. It’s complete, mostly original, and looks pretty much like the day it came off the showroom floor. The paint is excellent and the color screams 1971. It’s a delight to drive and feels like a low mileage car (very tight and solid). Indicated miles were about 52,000 when we got the car. We did have to change the speedo which was reading way too high and the new correct 1971 replacement reads 80,000 (but now it works properly). I believe this to be a true 50k mile car based on overall condition and ride quality. Transmission is the correct original all-syncho four speed.
Unlike so many of these cars which have been molested, this one has a huge amount of integrity and feels like 1971 through and through. It’s rust free, runs great, drives great and looks great. The interior light works. The flashers work. The rear window heater works. Everything works, it’s an assemblage of early 70s British engineering that puts a smile on anyone’s face.
We’ve recently gone through the car and serviced the brakes and rebuilt the front end. A prior owner added a wonderful upgraded aluminum radiator. He also changed the rear subframe, which did have some rust, and the new one is perfect.
Correct ten inch tires are recent and in great shape. It’s missing one door pull, and we have the correct one on order. Other than that, the car is in excellent shape. this is a keeper, a time-capsule car. Price is $17,995.
The classic Mini market appreciates accuracy, in fact, a ratty but correct 60s Mini Cooper S just sold for $43,000. This car is another very correct vehicle for a lot less than half that money. This classic car is for a collector who wants something special. It’s also a simple and accessible left hand drive classic that can also be a fun daily driver for anyone in the family, without worry.
