A 1959 Austin Mini Se7en De Luxe, said by auctioneers Bonhams to be the eighth to roll off the Longbridge production line, could fetch as much at £15,000 when auction later this month.
Farina grey paint lies beneath the carís rust. The car has the original registration plate and even the original glass washer bottle isstill in use – only the driver’s door has been replaced.
John Polson from Bonhams confirmed: “The Mini is one of the most important cars of the 20th century. They have always been collectable. Some collectors would want to return her to new, but others would just like to get her going again and keep her in the original condition.”
