Footnotes

  • The current vendor purchased this Mini Traveller (originally pale blue in colour) in 1967/68 and had it repainted in the orange/black livery of his coach company. Some 4-6 months later he sent the car as a present to his father in Sicily where it was enjoyed and very well looked after until the father died in 1982. The car was registered in Italy as 'ME 209019' in the Messina Province. While in Sicily the Mini was barn stored and used by the vendor's family each time they went there on holiday, on average twice or three times a year: Christmas, Easter and the summer holidays. The car was brought back to the UK towards the end of 2003 and reregistered here between March and April 2004. The vendor gradually brought it up to standard mechanically over a period of three years, during which period he was offered and had fitted an almost new engine that had only 12,000 miles on its bores (see statement on file). Approximately 4,000 miles have been covered since its installation. At this point it was decided to take the Mini back to Sicily and last year it was completely renovated and the body repainted Tartan Red with Old English White roof. Described as in good running condition, this early Mini Traveller is offered with a quantity of restoration invoices, current road fund licence, MoT to April 2014 and Swansea V5.
