1989 Mini Thirty

Just 52,000 miles; special order metallic paintwork; half-leather trim; been in daily use until recently; MOT May 2022

The iconic Mini was voted the most influential car of the 20th Century and was a huge hit with the masses and stars alike.

In 1979, BL decided to celebrate its 20th birthday with a special edition – the Mini 20, which went down a storm. Clearly on to a good thing, five years later they bought out the Mini 25 and then in 1989 the fabulous Mini 30. Their advertising slogan ran ‘The Mini 30 – Never before has one so little offered you so much!’

Packed full of luxurious touches, including metallic pearl paint, red leather steering wheel, thick pile cherry red carpets, half leather seats, Minilite wheels and a chrome trim pack, the little Mini sold for £5,995 and the 3,000 produced were snapped up in no time.

This original and unmolested example has covered just 52,000 miles of the last 32 years, and has been with the current keeper since 2013. In regular use for a short commute, it is MOT'd until May 2022 with bills on file to show work carried out over the years as well as eight old MOTs.

It carries the odd blemish here and there as one would expect  and is now due a fresh battery, aside from which it looks like an attractive first set of wheels, or economical commuter which is easy to park on arrival - all on offer at a sensible catalogue estimate.
