A lovely early Mini in Super de Luxe specification and whilst fully restored retaining a nice degree of originality.  Checked over in our own workshop and valeted, ‘LBY’ is now on the button and ready to go!  She starts quickly, pulls away cleanly and drives very well, strong on the road with nice direct steering and good, straight brakes; plenty of fun in the lanes!

Price: £13,500 OVNO
