The Rover Mini was the final take on the iconic Alec Issigonis designed car, and the last original Mini to be produced. Officially known as the Mark VII, the Rover Mini offered features not seen before in the car, such as a driver's side airbag, side impact protection beams, and additional sound insulation. These features, including revised front seats, arguably made the Mark VII the most comfortable and usable version of the classic Mini. This example, which has been off the road since 2016, provides an incoming owner the opportunity of restoration. The bodywork will require some attention and welding due to rot on the inner and outer sills, however included in the sale are 2 door skins, front and rear panels, outer sills and sill tops. The car runs well, but the clutch fluid leaks so not drivable currently. The interior is in good condition but will require cleaning. There is also a small history file with the car including new and old V5Cs, 7 MOTs, and several invoices.
