The Mini – in all its incarnations – remains an immensely popular classic, both for new-to-the-hobby enthusiasts or those who have grown up with it over the decades. Leaving the factory as a 1000 model today it is fitted with an uprated 1,275cc engine (fitted with an oil cooler) breathing through a big-bore SU carburettor, while a two-into-one free-flow system takes care of the exhaust gases. The Mini's body, paint and trim is described as good, while the interior is ranked as average (headlining and trim) and good (seats, dashboard and door cards). Our vendor reports the engine as very good for starting and running while the underbonnet area and engine components are good, as is the running gear. The electrical system is also classed as good. The car comes with some history.
