1984 Austin Mini Cooper
25th Anniversary Edition
Top-to-bottom restoration completed!
The classic, original Mini Cooper is an absolute must have. Like any collectable car it has a rich history of racing pedigree and stardom. The Austin Mini is a staple of automotive history for their style and excellent drivability. Some of the well known names of Classic Mini Cooper owners include: George Harrison, Steve McQueen, Enzo Ferrari and Mick Jagger. This is no surprise to anyone who has been lucky enough to get behind the wheel of one on a good B road. The cars were built and continuously upgraded throughout the years and generations from the Mark I all the way to this Mark IV. The early cars set the stage and became a hit among enthusiast because of its precise and predictable steering, great chassis handling and practicality. However, the Mark1 I, Mark II and Mark III were largely underpowered and had some short comings in build quality. Such as some with Fiberglass bodies and limited safety.
The Mark IV introduced revised interior room, a more responsive, powerful engine, disc brakes, and a floor pedal layout that was actually usable for anyone with a shoe size of 12. The Mark IV also brought back manufacturing to England and it has been said the Mini was largely responsible for saving the Austin-Rover brand. Being a huge car enthusiast myself, I have always thought of an early Mark IV as the most desirable of the years due it’s still classic styling, but increased drivability, comfort and power.
This particular Mini celebrates everything that is MINI as it is the 25th Anniversary Edition and comes with multiple options and accessories that only the 25th Anniversary came with. Everything on the interior is limited to the 25th Anniversary from seats, carpets, steering wheels and dash. The exterior was beautifully resprayed, without orange peel, fade or blemish, to keep the original 25Th Anniversary Edition custom striping and paint. The car was beautifully restored, inside and out and starts at the turn of the key, it runs and drives exactly as it should. She drives better than ever as the suspension and springs were upgraded to a modern coilover. This car is a rare Swedish model, made in England and only 1 of 1500 that were left hand drive. Don’t worry she is titled here in the states!
I wish I were able to keep this rare and classic Mini. It is being sold as-is, with no warranty expressed or implied with mileage exempt due to age. It stands out at any cars and coffee and is truly a pleasure to show and drive. Bid with confidence and good luck!
Also, any zero or low feedback bidders please contact me before bidding or your bids will be deleted.
