This stunning Mini Thirty is finished in the lustrous Pearlescent Cherry Red, one of only two colours available for this Limited Edition.  A beautiful depth of shine is created due to the extra coat of clear lacquer applied to this model.  All the chrome is perfect, including the eleven slat grille and front and rear bumpers.  All distinguishing decals exclusive to the Mini Thirty remain intact and damage free.  The Mini Thirty Crest bonnet badge is present.  Paint rectification due numerous scuffs has been carried out.   The wheel arch spats are perfect with no dings to any of the panels.  The supplying Dealer rear window sticker is present.  A wonderfully iconic example.

The interior of this outstanding Mini Thirty is in fabulous factory original condition finished in the elegant blend of black leather and ‘Lighting’ cloth with the important ‘1959 to 1989’ still neatly sewn into the seat.  The unique Claret deep cut pile carpets are wear free and the red leather sports steering wheel with ‘Thirty’ crest is not worn having covered such few miles.  The drivers leather seat base has some minor veins. The correct Phillips R570 stereo with matching parcel shelf speakers is fully operational.  All instruments, switches gauges operate correctly and the interior plastic trim and door cards are perfect.  The supplying Dealer tax disc holder is still attached to the front screen.  A fabulous charming and quality environment to be sat in exactly how the manufacturer intended.

This car is in excellent mechanical order having covered such few miles.  The engine is the 4-cylinder transverse OHV 998cc A+ unit which pulls strongly and is quiet.  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!

Eight spoke alloy wheels remain scuff and damage free due to replacement and are shod in quality 145/70 R12 tyres.  The spare wheel still has the original tyre fitted.  The servo assisted dual line hydraulic brakes pull the car up quickly.  Very responsive handling and manoeuvrability.

Registered new on the 2nd October 1989 by Wicliffe Motor Co Ltd to the first of just two owners.  The first owner, Miss Ricard, purchased the car in her retirement and remained the custodian for 24 years.  The New Car Invoice reveals she paid £6,200 for this Limited Edition.   A very comprehensive history file waits to be presented to the new owner with invoices dating from 1993 and MOT’s from the same decade showing the small increase in mileage annually.  The garage who maintained the car religiously for her recall her annual visits remarking how little the car was used but unfortunately succumbing to the occasional new knock here and there!  The second and only other owner with a passion for low mileage classic Mini’s has decided to part with one of the higher mileage examples, making this one of 3000 rare Minis available for a lucky new enthusiast.  

All hand books exist including the Customer Guide booklet, AA Members Handbook, In-car Entertainment Booklet.
