Sold for US$ 18,720 inc. premium
From the LeMay Collection
1963 Austin Mini 850 Traveller Woodie
Chassis no. AAW7L425053
Approximately 12 months after the Mini saloon’s introduction, estate car versions appeared in the form of the Morris Mini Traveller and Austin Countryman, both of which were based on the long-wheelbase Mini van floorpan. At first the duo were available only with ‘woody’ embellishment, a style that had proved immensely popular on the Morris Minor Traveller, though in the Mini’s case the timber was not structural. Naked, all-steel versions appeared later. Although produced until 1982, the Mini estates were never given Hydrolastic suspension, while the single trim level available was equivalent to that of the De Luxe saloon.

This Morris Mini Traveller has had only two owners from new, the second being Harold LeMay. The odometer currently shows 54,000 miles, which is believed to be the actual miles since new. Offered with a Washington Certificate of Title.
