Default FS: 1969 Austin Mini 1000 (Mk II)

As much as it pains me, we need to part ways with our beloved Olive. She's a 1969 Austin Mini 1000.

Here are the specs:
Color: Sandy Beige / White top
Interior: Tartan red interior with a wood dash and steering wheel
Mileage: 38,476
RIGHT HAND DRIVE

Paint condition: 9/10
Interior condition: 10/10 (seriously, it's perfect)
Body condition: 9/10

She runs perfectly and I've got service records for years and years and years. I don't know exactly how far back they go but it's a hefty folder full. I just recently replaced the alternator, starter solenoid, water pump and completely restored the front drum brakes.

Asking $12,000 OBO. I'll let the pics do the rest of the talking.

Fantastic looking Mini, and if all is as it appears to be, well worth the asking price. Someone jump on this.

It really is in great condition. The only imperfections in the paint are minor. There are a couple of rust spots painted over and holes near the fenders where the previous owner had installed some hideous fender flares. I had originally planned to have them filled and painted over, but the next owner may very well want fender flares, so they'd be covered up anyway.

I need to get rid of the debt that I have on it. I need a practical car that gets good gas mileage and I just can't afford to keep 2 cars right now.

lol that's what everyone keeps telling me. To be honest though I've only got about $1k tied up in my frog tanks, and soon they'll start paying themselves back with froglets.

If I didn't already have my Benz moneypit, I'd pick this up. I really would.

Beautiful car!

Great car! sorry to hear you have to go this route.
Get some frogs in that tank so that they can start bringing you some extra income and allow you to keep it.
I wish I had the cash to pick this up myself. Good luck!

Man, I wish I could afford this. Its one of the very few cars that'll fit in the empty garage space left when I sold my R53.

Its such a beautiful car.
