The vendor acquired this Minx from a deceased estate, having come across it in storage where it had rested for a year. Prior to that it had formed part of a wedding fleet for some time. A new battery and a little fettling is said to be all that was required to bring her to life and back on the road. Presented in two tone black over cream with cream leather upholstery, the car is said to have “good” paintwork, engine and gearbox with “average” body and interior. Featuring a full sunroof and optional rear boot box it also has the World’s first mass produced all synchromesh gearbox! Last Motd in 2017, it is further described as being “in good running order throughout”. Photographic evidence suggests a body off restoration took place, probably in the 1980's or 90’s. Due to lack of recent use, bar an occasional trip through the village, it will benefit from some light recommissioning. Offered with a history file, manuals, workshop parts list and what looks like a mostly complete but dismantled engine and gearbox (possibly the original) which can be collected by the buyer from a village close to Duxford.
