1986 Mini 1000 City Auto

Loads of goodies fitted; fun auto; just 52,600 miles from new; a very smart example

First registered in August 1986, this Mini City would have started with a modest spec. At which point its owner went to town we don't know, but they have certainly been busy adding loads of extras making it the Cooper lookalike you see here today.

The additions we can see are through the grille spotlights, flared arches and Revolution-style alloys, a repaint (non-standard colour we think) plus a chequered flag on the roof and on the inside, a full dashboard including an oil pressure gauge, clock and rev counter. There is a radio CD unit and also a sporty steering wheel.

Fortunately, whoever has done this work invested their time and effort on a very nice example, the car remaining commendably rust free with excellent sills (which are colour matched underneath to the car). The doors fit well and it has clearly had lots of detailing under the bonnet, including a new brake master cylinder, what looks like a recent radiator and a Mini spares inlet manifold.

The no advisory MOT runs until 2023 and the car shows 52,608 miles - unsubstantiated, but we see no reason to disbelieve. These Autos are great fun to drive, having four speeds and a very responsive change and handle like a go-kart.

If you drive around town and want to be first away from the lights, this sweet little Mini looks ideal, or as a first car maybe?
