Footnotes

  • By the time the Mini celebrated its 30th anniversary it had already passed the remarkable production milestone of 5 million (achieved in 1986). Based on the Mini Mayfair and introduced in June 1989, the '30' was the most luxuriously equipped Mini Limited Edition model to date. Just two alternative paint schemes were offered - Cherry Red or black - featuring contrasting duo-tone coachlines and '1959-1989' decals and bonnet badge. Wheelarch extensions, door mirrors and sill covers were colour-matched to the body, chrome finish being reinstated for the grille, bumpers and door handles, while Minilite-style alloy wheels (soon to feature on the Mini Cooper) were a particularly handsome addition to the package. The 998cc engine could now run on unleaded petrol, and a catalytic converter was available as an option. 3,000 cars were built for the UK market, the colour split being 2,000 in red, 1,000 in black.

    This Mini '30' has had only three owners from new. 'G529 XLL' is finished in the rarer black livery with matching red-piped leather interior, while other noteworthy features include a wood-trimmed dashboard and a sunroof. In storage for the last ten years, the car has been re-commissioned and MoT'd and is described as in generally good condition and driving very well. A total of 24,000 miles is displayed on the odometer. Offered with MoT certificate and Swansea V5 document.
