In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.
- In the mid-1950s Rootes decided to release a new version of the Minx to follow the popular and successful Mark Minx. During development this new body style was known as 'Audax' - Latin for bold - and the new design, a radical departure from the Mark VIII, was certainly striking
- Introduced in 1961, the latest development of the Audax Series, the Series IIIC, was essentially the same on the outside, but somewhat plainer in trim and appearance, more reminiscent of the Special than the De Luxe. It was distinguished from the IIIA and IIIB by a round profile Special/Husky style front bumper and the letters 1600 on the front doors in place of the Minx script, which was moved to the rear of the boot
- Finished in dark grey with a red interior
- We understand that this particular example is fitted with Ford 1.8 diesel engine
