The unique Claret deep cut pile carpets are wear free and the two front seats are preserved with the driver's seat having been covered by the enthusiast owner. The red leather sports steering wheel with ‘Thirty' crest is completely free from wear. commensurate with the cars minimal usage. The factory Phillips R570 stereo is housed in the dealer option centre console along with an additional speaker. cigar lighter and Quartz clock. All instruments. switches gauges operate correctly and the interior plastic trim. door cards and headlining are perfect. A miniature replica model is attached to the dash top. It is difficult to see how much closer you could get to a ‘new' classic Mini interior. complete with the new car smell!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This car is in prime mechanical order having covered such few miles. Needing little introduction. the engine is the 4-cylinder transverse OHV 998cc A+ unit which pulls strongly and quietly. The four speed all synchromesh gearbox is impeccably smooth and light. precise gear changes are accomplished effortlessly. The engine bay featuring the unique yellow paintwork block is completely original. unmolested and exactly as Rover intended. Evidence of the dealership applied Waxoyl from new as specified from new by the conscientious first owner is visible on the inner wings.

WHEELS. TYRES & BRAKES
Factory original and unrestored. the correct and desirable eight spoke alloy wheels with wheel nut cut away sections remain in perfect order. The original Pirelli Cinturato 145/70 12 tyres have masses of tread remaining with even the sidewall nobbles still intact! The servo assisted dual line hydraulic brakes pull the car up quickly and aid the responsive handling and manoeuvrability.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 1st May 1995 by Austin Rover Main Dealers D. C. Cook of Rotherham. the first keeper Mr William Wood purchased his beloved Mini as a 60th birthday and retirement present to himself. The original presentation pack given to the first owner when each Thirty model was new is present and complete in the history file. This pack incorporates a hardback book outlining the 1959-1989 history of the Mini (still in the cellophane wrapper). miniature Corgi model painted in the correct Cherry Red and a certificate confirming build number 1268. Beautifully preserved. this presentation pack only very rarely remained with these cars and now represents a collectable piece in itself.

Minimal usage due to his early passing. the vehicle remained in Mr Wood's name until January 2014. After upmost scrutiny and vetting by his family who were adamant the Mini must go to a true enthusiast. the car was purchased by Mr Richard Hoar. a well known club member. This Thirty formed part of his collection alongside a stunning Mk1 Cooper and attended shows and club outings. The history file further consists of the original leather bound wallet containing the service booklet and handbook.

MOT January 2016. HPI Clear. Approved Used Car Certificate.
