1973 Mini Classic Mini Special Description


This is a mint classic Mini. NZ-assembled in 1973, I bought it as a 1000 then did a full restoration in 2006. It has just had (Sep 2018) a panel and paint so it's looking awesome. It's also just had a tune-up including new HT leads, distributor cap, points and CV joints so it's running really well. Receipts for all work.Only selling because I need a bigger car.
The car is currently in New Zealand. I am willing to export at buyer's expense.
