The Mini requires little introduction, however, it may be of interest to note that the Mk. III Mini, produced from 1969 to 2000, had a modified bodyshell with several alterations from the early models. The most obvious changes were larger doors with concealed hinges. Customer demand led to the sliding windows being replaced with winding windows and the suspension reverted from Hydrolastic to rubber cones as a cost saving measure. With so many Minis built, it would become popular to modify them to individual tastes.

On offer is a convertible Mini 1000 City E modified from a standard Saloon first registered in December 1987. The car sits on Minilite wheels with wood veneer dashboard and steering wheel. The interior has been re-trimmed with new door cards and carpets. The Mini looks attractive with its sky blue coachwork, cream hood and cream hood cover which keeps things tidy whilst the hood is stowed. We are advised that this UK registered convertible Mini will arrive with a fresh MoT test certificate. What a fun package this is, that will be enjoyed by a lucky new owner for many summers to come
