1977 BL Mini 1000

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

With 1970s Minis mak­ing fewer auc­tion ap­pear­ances than 1960s mod­els, this 18,000-miles-from-new 1000 was just the ticket for some­one with a par­tic­u­lar han­ker­ing for a pre-Bri­tish Aero­space-era model.

Two lady own­ers plus the ven­dor have kept the mileage down to that barely-run-in 18k, and decades of reg­u­lar main­te­nance stand it in good stead: it was kept ser­viced and MoT’d even when it saw very lit­tle – if any – use.

It’s a sheer de­light that is ev­ery bit as charm­ing as the early cars – and the ku­dos of be­ing sel­dom-seen and less clichéd counts for some­thing too. With great pan­el­work, amaz­ingly good paint and a lovely in­te­rior, it’s a great buy for just over nine grand.
