272-mile Mk1 Morris Minor-Mini Super De Luxe for sale

Published 09 September 2019

A Mk1 Mini with just 272 miles on the clock is for sale – making it surely one of the most original examples available today. In fact, the one-owner 1968 Morris Mini-Mini Super De Luxe still has its plastic seat covers fitted.

A Mrs B Jones ordered the car new in 1968 so that she could learn to drive. Sadly, she never passed her test and the car was garaged until heading to auction a few years ago. As a results, it is in ‘timewarp’ condition.

For example, the door strikers, which were painted in Old English White to match the bodywork and that usually become chipped with use, are completely intact - as are the painted screws that would typically be prone to rust.

Inside, the original Tartan Red interior (which often fades in the sunlight), is as bright as the day the car left the showroom more than half a century earlier. Even the optional safety belts that were fitted at the time of the car’s pre-delivery service sport the manufacturer’s original cardboard label.

The car's value lies in it's originality - which is another way of saying you can't drive it.
Belongs in a museum really.
