1961 Austin Seven Mini in factory Tartan Red. This mini has been owned for the last 41 years by Philip Splett. Philip has helped to run the Mini Cooper Register for the last 35 years including being chairman. His passion for Minis lead to him owning many over the years but he always kept 3 right up to the stage where he is no longer able to comfortably drive them. He has driven the minis all over Europe and can now think back over the great times he had had driving them. This fantastic mini is just a joy to see and drive. It has all of its original body panels which after 58 years is just remarkable. It has always been driven and enjoyed and made regular trips to France. Prior to Philip buying the car back in 1978 it was owned by a BMC engineer who worked in the Austin factory. When the 998 cc engine was introduced he fitted a new one to the mini in the factory as there is a noticeable power advantage. He also fitted some lovely additional gauges inside to include water temperature, oil pressure and amps. These are all very old now and have a great patina to them. Everything works as it should and the interior feels so special and original. The sunroof adds an additional fun factor to the car. The engine and gearbox were rebuilt by Roger Hill in 2009 and it has covered 2000 miles since. This is the smoothest A series engine I have ever known. This is also the best MK 1 mini I have ever driven. It feels tight and precise while giving a smooth ride and great ability to waft along with the roof back on a sunny day. I have 30 past MOT certificates, all of the past log books inc the original buff log book. An original owners manual, a Heritage Certificate plus pictures and receipts. This is a very special original 58 year old mini which will give many hours of fun and enjoyable summer trips. Free delivery to your door in my curtain sided van within 200 miles of South Molton.

** DEPOSIT PAID ** 1973 Austin Mini 1275 in black with part leather interior trim. This mini has been owned by the same family for the last 31 years. During this time it was restored and received a newer 1990s body shell which is very solid and sound. It also would have had a 998 cc engine but this has been updated to a 1275 cc engine from a Mini Metro. The end result is a period early 70s tax exempt car with a newer shell and newer more modern engine making it more comfortable at modern driving speeds. It has 10 inch wheels on new Yokohama A008 tyres which makes it corner very well. The body is in great condition with solid sills and floors and it has a very shiny coat of black paint. Due to the paint shop I use having a back log of work I am offering this mini at an attractive price with some minor cosmetic touch-ins which do not effect the overall look of the car and can be rectified over time. These I have photographed for you to see. Free delivery to your door in my enclosed van within 200 miles of Tiverton.
