1961 Classic Austin Mini Estate Countryman (Woody) For Sale

A ’64 Mini Cooper was the car I owned just before I bought my first Bugeye way back in the 70s, so I have a particular affection for early cars like like the Mini you see here. This one is registered as a 1961 Mini and it has early door hinges, latches and windows, but a more modern interior and dashboard, complete with comfortable headrest equipped seats and a nice wooden dashboard. It’s perfectly nice and wonderful to drive and enjoy as it is now, or, if you are a purist, this car could be converted back to the original interior.

New Price! This car is now available for $16,595- A lot of fun for the money!

The car is fit with a 998 cc engine with a four synchro later gearbox. The engine and gearbox are presumed to be from a later car. It runs great and shifts smoothly.

Drum brakes are fit all around and they work wonderfully, the car stops straight and true. Nice 165/70×10 Yokahama tires are fit to ten inch minilights for a great performance ride.

In September of last year, we performed a major service to this car and made it into a great fun driver. We replaced shocks, ball joints, wheel cylinders, drums and shoes and a host of smaller issues, all with the eye to make the car easy to use and ready to go for the former owner, who used the car sporadically and recently decided to simply sell it to us.


You can now jump in this car and drive anywhere. It starts up easily, runs well and the brakes work great!

If you like these woody wagons, this one will provide exceptional summer fun! Call if you would like to take this one home!

PS: What is the difference between a Traveller and a Countryman?

Answer: Very simply a Morris Mini estate is a Traveller and an Austin Mini estate is a Countryman. Some people wrongly think that one model had the wood and the other didn’t, but both the Morris Mini Traveller and the Austin Mini Countryman were available both as a Woody and as an all steel version.
