1972 Austin Mini 850
Cheerful and usable, this 1972 Mini wasn’t in bad order (the interior was good) but for the early-1970s Mini enthusiast there was work to do to get this 29,000-miler up to scratch. The bodywork wasn’t bad at all, the panels being straight and tidy. Stored from 1982 until being bought by the vendor in 2015 the brakes had been overhauled and replacement dynamo, battery and tyres fitted. The catalogue noted the bodywork had been ‘restored as required’. Nevertheless here was a corker of a Mini that would reward its new owner well.
