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' benefits from parts supplied and fitted by the East Anglian Mini Centre, including new shock absorbers, brake shoes, brake cylinders, ball joints and electronic ignition, the latter being a sensible upgrade. 'G966 RGY' is finished in red livery with black half-leather interior and is described as in generally good condition having covered only 65,000 miles from new. Accompanying documentation consists of sundry invoices, MoT to March 2015 and V5C registration document.
