This is crying out for a sympathetic re-commission and clean up.

There can't be many more of these still out there and a great colour combo of Green Mallard and Limeflower.
Servo on a 1000 ?. Didn't think it looked modified at all until I saw that, wonder what else it's hiding beneath the wikipedia BS description, could be a sleeper.

:roll: Strange, the ignition key is in the steering column and not in the dashboard.

My Seneffe built 1973 still has the ignition key in the dashboard.

I think with early Mk3 minis the key remained in the centre unless a steering column lock was specified as an option.

£2.5k including buyers is about right. Quite a rare car in that colour. A lot depends when you pull back the carpets / back seat though.......

My mid '71 has the ignition in the column and my early '71 from many years ago also had it in the column. A pals late '69 has the centre key though.

Think the export cars may have been slightly different though. :)

My '71 van has it on the column.

That looks a great wee project at sensible money (for these days)

My 1971 Pick also had a steering lock. The business owned it from new so I know it was original.
