Classic Car Auctions says:

This 1966 Austin Mini 850 Mk.I Super Deluxe was purchased by our vendor in late 2013, after having been discovered in a barn in Le Mans, where is had been dry stored since the early 1990s. The bodywork of the car was in good condition and so, to retain its originality, it was decided that a sympathetic restoration was necessary. The car was stripped down, subframes, glass, brightwork and rubbers removed and a full respray carried out. The original interior was also in fair condition and so it was cleaned, repaired where necessary and put back into the car. The engine was dismantled, a bore inspection done, and the cylinder head rebuilt before being reassembled with new gaskets. A new clutch was also fitted at this time.

The early part of this Mini's history is unfortunately not present, however, there is a photographic record of all the work carried out since our vendor took ownership. Supplied with a UK V5c, this charming, and well-restored Austin Mini 850 Super Deluxe is now ready to be enjoyed by its next owner for years to come.
