From the seller: “We have a 1979 Classic Mini 1000 for sale.
This was our old family car that was stored behind our shed and sadly forgotten about for the last 20 years. The car is intact and solid in places, but now has a lot of rust and the roof is caved in where a branch grew on top of the car.
The mini has a 998cc engine, was bought as an automatic and converted to a manual engine in 1986. We still have the original automatic engine that is offered in the sale as well. We have the log book and original handbook for the car, along with an Autobooks Mini manual.
It’d be great to see the car go to someone to restore, or use the parts to help in another restoration.”
