Austin Mini 998cc - Genuine 25k Miles - Exceptional Original Condition
We think this could be the best Mini on the market right now. We think she could be the best Mini on the market right now because she has covered a genuine 25,400 miles as verified by a full set of MOT slips from new, because she has her original 998cc engine (matching numbers) and has been owned for ten years with just three previous keepers (10 years average each). Mechanically she is exceptional and she drives beautifully, with the most wonderful 998cc engine and gearbox. Bodily she is remarkable without any corrosion and excellent chrome. Underneath she is perfect without any welds, having been ziebarted and garaged from new. Interior wise she is immaculate, with the sought after early 1980’s thatch interior. Being a 1981 Mini she is tax exempt, about to be MOT exempt and comes with an MOT in any case. I will expand upon each of these points, include links to extra videos and pictures and then cover her relatively few age related imperfections.
1. Genuine 25,400 Miles Having covered a genuine 25,400 miles throughout forty years, she is likely one of the lowest mileage examples and she drives like a brand new Mini. This exceptionally low mileage is verified by a full paper MOT history from new (forty years).
2. Matching Numbers - Original Engine & Gearbox Having matching numbers, we know that she has her original unworn low mileage engine. That engine even has its original factory paint.
3. Drives As If Brand New Driving beautifully, her 998cc engine starts first time and is one of the smoothest A series engines we have heard and her gearbox feels as if it is brand new.
4. Exceptional Bodywork Finished in the iconic Vermillion Red, she has no corrosion, perfect panel gaps and beautiful chrome work.

5. Solid Underneath Having been Ziebarted from new and waxoyled, she has no corrosion underneath and has never been welded (please see the pictures).
6. Immaculate Period Interior Being immaculate inside with this fantastic early 1980’s thatch interior, she is as new. The only none original feature is this beautiful burr walnut central speedometer three gauge dash and matching steering wheel, however she also comes with her original dash and steering wheel if you did want to put her back to original.
7. Incredibly Original She retains all of her original period features, she has never been welded and is in fantastic condition. She even retains all of her original registration etch marked glass.
8. Tax Exempt + MOT Exempt Being tax exempt and MOT exempt (in six months), she is very cheap to run.
9. Correctly Maintained Having a long MOT with no advisories, having recently benefited from a full service as well as a complete coolant system overall and waxoyling she is both ready to drive and ready for the winter.
10. Extensive History Folder Coming with all of her original documents as supplied by the dealership, all of her MOT slips from new and some service history, her history folder is somewhat extensive.
11. Why is She in Such Amazing Condition Having had four owners with each owner owning her for an average of 10 years, this has been a cherished vehicle. Whilst she has done just 360 miles on average throughout the last 25 years, she has been well looked after and always MOT’d.
12. A Very Sought After Model Being the HL model she is of a higher specification. Having the 998cc engine she is perfect for cheap younger driver classic car entry level insurance. Being an early Mini she has many of the early desirable period features and the benefits of tax and MOT exemption. Accordingly, she is a great package.
Accordingly, this is your opportunity to purchase an Austin Mini with just an incredible and verified 25,400 miles. Having such incredibly low mileage she drives like a brand new vehicle and has exceptional bodywork, an immaculate interior and is perfect underneath.
Age Related Notes The only age related imperfection is that she has a heat rash at the top of her wings and bonnet. We wouldn’t correct this as it adds patina. A photograph of this can be found on Google Drive.
It should also be noted that when her dash was upgraded in 2012 a new central speedometer was fitted and set at 0 miles. Since 2012 she has done a 1096 miles. Her original speedometer with 23906 miles is included and can be refitted if required. The MOT history backs up her mileage in any case.
