Before the Mini BMC's smallest car was the A30, whose petite lines were lesser than those of its in-house rival, the Morris Minor. Bonhams' A30 is a one previous owner car, formerly the property of the vendor's aunt, and comes to market in largely original condition. The bodywork is described as very good and the paint, glass and trim ranked as good: the interior is vendor-described as average to good. Engine starting and running is ranked as very good and the engine bay's condition good, the running gear too is ranked as good. There is some history with the A30.
