Description

One family owner for 31 years
The last of the 1275 carburettor cars

This is a really smashing little Mini, she is a 1275cc with the single carburettor in the most totemic of colour combinations of British Racing Green with White contrast

First bought by a Mrs Joan Emily Brown in June of 1991 from Man Egerton of Finchley the car still has the original dealer number plate on the rear

Fuel injection was bought in for Mini's in October 1991 making our car here one of the very last of the famous 1275cc cars, and she drives with the spirited enthusiasm all her predecessors ensured she was known for

Mrs Joan Emily Brown kept the car until 2008 when she transferred the V5C to her son - keeping the car in the family for another 14 years thereafter until 2022 when she bought by a keen enthusiast based on Cornwall

One family owner for 31 years!

We came across her when our friend in Cornwall became besotted with one of our cars however as is often the case garage space was at a premium and she had to go to make space for the other

She has of course been garaged her whole life so leaving her on the street was not an option

When discussing the car we quickly put our hands up to say we would be most happy to buy her from him and so a deal was struck before a nice trip down to the West Country for a run back up to London in the new Mini

She went along very nicely indeed, A303 most of the way enjoying country lanes and the unmistakable characteristics of a well sorted Mini

Smiles are of course a guarantee with a snappy little Mini like this however my grinning was stretched even further when I stopped for fuel and decided to pull the arial up in the romantic hope that the original radio would tune in

Quick corn beef sandwich, country filling stations always have better sandwiches than the big chains, and I was back on my way singing along happily with the period radio tuning in perfectly and the stereo speakers producing exactly the right noise

We are using her here and there at the moment as we just can't resist really but the mileage is still in that beautiful little sweet spot of roughly 1000 miles a year since production

A very happy little car indeed
