Description

1985 Austin Mini Mayfair
68,000 miles
1275/1.3L petrol

I have owned the car since 2010 and since then have spent two years restoring and the subsequent years adding improvements to make it a daily driver.

During the restoration:
-Front-end panels replaced
-Rear valance panel replaced
-Doors reskinned
-Full body respray
-Undersealed with Schultz and Waxoyl
-Interior cleaned
-New headliner
-New dashboard
-Modern radio with AUX
-Wheels powder coated
-Performance exhaust fitted

Subsequent improvements:
-Front brakes upgraded to drilled/grooved disks
-Rear brakes upgraded to alloy finned drums
-New 22,000 mile refurb SPi engine converted back to carburettor installed
-Many engine upgrades, e.g. alloy inlet, performance exhaust + manifold, performance air filter, etc.
-Xenon headlights fitted
-Rear foglight relocated to light cluster

The car has been incredibly reliable with the newer engine and regularly commuted between Bradford and Durham, keeping up and overtaking on the motorways. The car has been 'set up' by a Mini garage in Durham such that it never overheats, even in stop-start traffic and is really economical, averaging 40mpg on the motorways. The only downsides are a small patch of rust >3cm on the driver's side rear wheel arch, some dents in the roof and a couple of auxiliary gauges are faulty (oil temp and amp meter). The car has been well looked after and driven all of its life, a daily use car that looks amazing!

Located and garaged in Oakenshaw, Bradford. Test drives welcome but must provide proof of insurance. Comes with a box of 'bits.' Full service history since 2010 and majority service history prior to 2010. I am currently a student away from the car but can arrange to come home to show.
