The Oldest Surviving Mini Could be Yours
To the untrained eye this car looks like a rustbucket that belongs at a junkyard, but to those with car knowledge this car is a very exciting piece of scrap metal.
According to the auctioneers at Bonham, this car, registration number XLL 27, chassis number AA2S7/108, is the eighth of its type to come off the production line at Longbridge in May 1959
Unfortunately, there have been a few items replaced, like the driver's door and carpet. Otherwise this car is completely intact, it retains its factory Farina Grey paintwork, all its original panels, engine, transmission and the original registration number.
Just an idea for those of you who aim to be the next Wayne Carini and want to chase classic cars as well. If you were to get your hands on it - would you restore it or keep it in its current condition?
