1959 Austin Mini project

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

Thought there were no more 1959 Minis to be dis­cov­ered? Here was proof to the con­trary, and it man­aged to triple its £5-7k es­ti­mate as a re­sult. The his­tory of this car, reg­is­tered two months af­ter the Mini’s launch, was known back to day one, hav­ing been bought by the ven­dor in 1974. The rear sub­frame was re­moved then, but never re­placed, and it was of­fered in that con­di­tion. While the front wings were rusty, the floors and boot were de­scribed as ‘ex­cel­lent’ and the in­te­rior was very good. One for the real Mini en­thu­si­ast, and the price shows that in­ter­est in these early cars is as strong as it ever was.
