Austin Mini Mayfair 1986 One Owner From New!! NO RESERVE - Once more we here at ECCA are proud to of been trusted by the family of the owner of "Molly" the Mini, to offer her for sale through our Auction house. This One Owner from new Mini was owned by their mother and used right up to 2014 when unfortunately she became unfit to drive and had to go into a residential home. After much soul searching, remember the family spent their formative years in this little car, it was decided to offer it via auction with "No reserve" and let the market establish a true value.
Molly herself had covered only 47059 miles when we first met her tucked up in a nice dry garage. We put fresh petrol in, a set of jump leads on and off she went! Hardly surprising though as her comprehensive history shows that the last time she was driven was 11.02.14 when a service and MOT was carried out at 47054 then the garage drove her back home. A staff member drove the 10 miles or so back to our storage bay and she never missed a beat. Engine is quiet and pulls well, gearbox and clutch are great, brakes work etc etc etc. Electrics are all good but a new battery will be required.
The history for this Mini is complete, including its original service book up to 18000 by the selling dealer then Peach Motors a local independent garage the rest of its life. MOTs go back to 2007 and prior to that the receipts show yearly MOTs carried out along with an annual service, so mileage is totally traceable and correct. Along with the service book is a complete set of hand books, owners manuals and a workshop manual.
We have decided to present the car "exactly" as discovered so you can judge just exactly how genuine it is. Yes the rear bumper needs to be replaced and there is the odd patch of corrosion here and there. But no damage on the bodywork, the original dealer sticker and number plates are still in place and all the interior needs is a good clean and some fresh carpet in the drivers foot well (heels eh dont you just love 'em. Carpets dont I know!).
The choice though is to restore to new or just re-commission and use?? A very rare find and here to sell to the highest bidder.
SOLD FOR £3700
