One of the most recognizable cars ever produced, Mini production started in 1959 and was an instant success. It's transverse engine, front-wheel drive layout influenced a generation of car-makers and became one of the best selling cars in Europe. The UK subcompact developed into several different versions, including: A wagon, a pick up truck, and of course the Mini Cooper. With all four wheels “pushed out” to the far corners of the vehicle, interior space was maximized and wide stance was achieved. This gives the car excellent balance and tremendous handling capabilities. The transverse engine planted over the front wheels provides excellent traction and grip.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this very tidy 1978 Austin Mini, left hand drive example, for world consideration. The car is powered by professionally prepared 1275cc engine, 4 speed manual transmission and front wheel drive. It is presented in Red exterior paint, white stripes with white roof over Saddle interior. Features included dual carbs, 10 inch JRC wheels, Smiths Gauges, wood dash, Sun Supertach, etc. The car has been owned by the same auto enthusiast for close to 20 years and kept as part of his collection. It has been driven a few times / year and has been routinely looked after. The paint although not original, is quite old and still shows very well. The car posses an excellent structure as the underside remains in original and shows very nice. Mechanically, this car has plenty of spunk and is a complete blast to drive. The engine is strong, the transmission shifts smooth, clutch feels good (no slip, no chatter), the car handles excellent and brakes straight.
