It has covered 29,000 miles in the hands of three owners and has benefited from a full and complete nut and bolt restoration by an ex-BMC mechanic, completed in 2014.

The extent of the restoration cannot be understated. The entire suspension was replaced and converted to rubber cones, with new Bilstein dampers front and rear, Adjust a ride suspension and new brakes all around. The new front and rear sub-frames have been powder coated, and the underside rust protected and painted Blaze Red. Professionally rewired with a new, period correct, wiring loom and fuse box, its also fitted with period correct Cooper S wheel rims, new period Dunlop tyres, and Group Two wheel arches with chrome trim.
A huge history file complete with a photographic record of the work undertaken and all the relevant invoices is supplied with this stunning Mini.
