1960 Morris Mini Minor Deluxe in Cherry red. This beautiful mini is now 60 years old and is just one year younger than the very first mini ever made! It was bought new by a family who enjoyed the car for the first 46 years until it was inherited by their nephew who sold the car to John Derby who is an Aston Martin design engineer, who has fully rebuilt the car from the ground up. I have a detailed history file with photographs detailing the methodical way it has been completed and as a result it looks great and drives wonderfully. There are many original parts and details which are very rare to find now and very collectable. I have taken a large number of pictures which can be seen on my website taken on a ramp to highlight some of the very rare, original and early features. There have also been some improvements to make the mini more useable on modern roads. The engine has been rebuilt and now runs on unleaded petrol. The gearbox has also been rebuilt and has 4 synchromesh gears making it easier to drive. The brakes have been uprated to twin leading shoe at the front so it stops with confidence. The interior looks original but the seats have been rebuilt to give good support but using the original seat covers. In the boot it also has the original rubber fold-out mat which clips to the boot lid and a picnic basket. The spare wheel has been refurbished and has a new period tyre to match the new period tyres on the car. The history file has some rare and special books and articles on the mini as well 2 copies of Mini World magazine from December 2012 where there is an 8 page feature on the car as well as it being on the front cover. There is also a specially made soft indoor car cover which has been made with no wing mirror pockets for this car in a matching colour. I really feel that the combination of this minis age, condition, history, originality, drive-ability and documentation makes it one of the best remaining examples. An exciting mini to own and treasure while also being a super investment or family asset to pass on through the generations. Free delivery in my enclosed van within 200 miles of Tiverton.
