1972 Austin Mini 850

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

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.
