1972 Austin Mini 850
Rising values of early Minis have had an effect on later cars, and after years in the doldrums, later cars have seen a marked increase in interest and value. This 1972 850 has had just four owners (each of whom know each other) and has covered just 29,500 miles from new. Bought by the vendor two years ago, it has been ‘gone through’ following 33 years in storage. The brakes have been overhauled, the dynamo, battery and tyres replaced, and the interior now features Mini Clubman seats. The body has also seen some refreshment, as has the two-tone paint it has had from new.
