1978 Austin Morris 1000 Auto Classic Mini Yellow and Black.

I have owned this car for the past 15 years and have had some great memories with 'Bumble' - Although it is time for him to go to a new home, due to a change of job and lack of time - He is just not being used and has been sat on the driveway for too long and this is not doing him any good.

I have priced to sell this car so please only message if you are a serious buyer.

It is an original Mini 100 Auto and I have owned this car for the best part of 15 years and in that time have spent more than I care to think about with added extras, however that is the fun of owning a mini after all!!

Twin exhausts
Ford signal yellow re-spray to the exterior only
Dancing horns
CD Player
New interior in detailed yellow and black with arm rest
Genuine Low Mileage
New Yellow Seat Belts
Chrome wing mirror upgrade
Black alloy wheel upgrade
Upgraded Tail lights
Chrome rearview mirror
Partial yellow carpeting

The auto box is sticking - I have serviced it but it may need a few more oil changes, point to note is that these cars general run best with a very thin oil like motor bike oil, the sticking might be due to not having been used
Rust in normal places for a mini coming through since being left, so could do with going in a garage
Some bubbling in the yellow paint work which can be seen in certain lights of positions as looking at the car
I never sprayed the boot or engine bay as I didn't want to touch any of that so this is all int he original orange colour
I took out the front carpets as they got wet and started to smell and I wanted to avoid issues - so will need new
I took out the CD Player although it is now in the the boot since removing the carpets
No Battery currently as it ran low and I have not purchased a new one

I am happy to answer any questions and would love it to go to a new loving home - a great project which shouldn't take too much to get him back not he road!!

I have tried to be as open and upfront about the car and its condition, if you have any questions please feel free to get in touch many thanks for checking out my add. The car is a classic Austin Morris Auto Mini 100 with the original mileage at 38685 which is very low considering this car is 46 years old.

The colour is a respray from a ford paint called signal yellow as mentioned it has had lots of money spent on it over the years with a new interior and lots of added extras from various time spent at mini shows etc..

This would be a great start for someone looking to get into minis as a hobby
