Lot details

Registration No: HJE 904F
Chassis No: 967829
MOT: Exempt

  • Said to be restored to a very high standard
  • Fitted with 998cc engine
  • Finished in Old English White complemented to a Red interior

This Traveller is powered by an uprated 998cc engine and is understood to have been restored whilst in the care of a previous owner to an extremely high standard. We are advised the car has covered just 7,000 miles since completion and that it remains in “fabulous condition”. Finished in Old English White with red interior it is currently described as having “excellent” bodywork, paintwork, engine, transmission and interior. MoT exempt, this charming example has had thousands of pounds lavished on it in order to bring it to the current condition and is well worthy of close inspection.

With the reverberations of the 1956-1957 Suez Crisis being felt worldwide, Leonard Lord commissioned Alec Issigonis to work on a radical small car project. His response was the now legendary Mini. Featuring an ingenious transverse-mounted powertrain (with engine sat atop the gearbox), all-round independent 'rubber cone' suspension, front-wheel drive and compact rack and pinion steering, the newcomer was a packaging masterpiece; not to mention one of the most influential automotive designs ever conceived. Available with saloon, pick-up, estate and traveller body styles, the ubiquitous mini proved to be an extremely successful and long-lived motoring icon.
