An unrepeatable Austin Mini Mayfair with an amazing 3,241 miles from new.
 
EQUIPMENT
Side coachline, ‘Mayfair’ motifs, wheel arch extensions, grey bumpers, chrome locking fuel filler cap, twin door mirrors, tinted glass, opening rear quarter windows, adjustable head restraints, reclining front seats, laminated windscreen, twin sun visors with vanity mirrors, triple pack binnacle, rev counter, water temperature gauge, LW/MW radio with one rear parcel shelf speaker, heated rear window, rear fog lamp.

EXTERIOR
This exceptional Mini Mayfair is finished in Arum White, (code NMF).  A beautiful shine remains all over thanks to a garaged low mileage existence.  All the unique trim is perfect, and the distinguishing ‘Mayfair’ motifs remain intact and damage free.  Wheel arches, sills and under the bonnet remain factory fresh with manufacturer stickers still on all the components.  All the tinted glass is number plate etched and a minor touch-in on the boot edge is barely visible.  Supplying Dealer number plates are still fitted front and rear.  A remarkable and very special little car.

INTERIOR
The interior of this outstanding luxury Mini Mayfair is in fabulous factory original condition finished in Raschelle fabric on the seats, door trims and side casings.  The deep cut pile carpets have absolutely no wear and the headlining is spotlessly clean.  The colour coded three spoke steering wheel with the ‘Austin’ badge proudly on display and the moulded handbrake grip is perfect.  The LW/MW AN232 stereo with tone control operates correctly along with all the other instruments, switches and gauges.  The boot area has a few minor paint chips and all the tools are unused in the plastic roll case.  A fabulous charming and quality environment to be sat in exactly how the manufacturer intended.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This car is in excellent mechanical order having covered such few miles.  The engine is the 4-cylinder transverse OHV 998cc ‘A Plus’ unit which pulls strongly and is whisper quiet.  With 40bhp, progress is nippy and running costs minuscule, thanks to excellent parts availability and 60.5mpg at 56mph.  The 4-speed all synchromesh gearbox with a diaphragm spring clutch is precise and changes gear effortlessly.  If you have driven a mini before you will know it is pure fun and this example is no exception!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The correct Mayfair wheel trims remain scuff and damage free all shod in factory correct Pirelli 145/70 SR12 tyres including the boot mounted spare.  The servo assisted dual line hydraulic brakes pull the car up quickly.  Very responsive handling and manoeuvrability.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by Frogmore Garage & Coachworks on the 12th December 1985 to Mrs Gladys Lock for a total price of £3,900 as revealed on the original purchase invoice.  Remaining in her care until July 2009 when her husband, Mr Dennis Lock took ownership.  Incredibly the supplying dealer maintained the car with every annual MOT certificate from 1988.  This leaves the next fortunate owner absolute verification of the unique and very desirable mileage of just 3,241.  The third and final custodian has a number of low mileage Mini’s and has fortunately continued the annual MOT ritual despite covering just under 1,000 miles since May 2011.  

All hand books exist including the Service Record book, Customer Guide booklet, In-car Entertainment Booklet, Austin Rover Supercover literature, (the AA stickers have been placed in the side rear screens) and a full set of keys are present  This Mini will appeal to a discerning enthusiast or an individual wanting to experience original Mini fun in its true form.

MOT February 2015 and HPI Clear.
