For sale is my 1980 Austin Mini Van. Some call the the Mini 95- the number representing the gross vehicle weight of 0.95 tons.
VIN number is XLV10000723401.
The Mini has a 998cc engine that was rebuilt last year by a local Mini enthusiast and runs great! There is probably about 500 miles on the car since rebuild.
The seats have been redone in leather (receipts for around $700). Door cards are also in matching leather.
Sliding glass windows.
10 inch MiniLite wheels are on the car.
The Van is a rare version of the saloon. The back features barn style doors. The floor in the back have a very thick and rugged mat that is typically used in horse trailers- very effective.
The paint is decent. It was resprayed at one point. There are a few little areas chipping here and there but it is an affordable, well running 37 year old Classic Mini. See the pictures of the car. If you'd like to see something specific, just ask.
The spot lights up front are for show and not wired.
The car is right hand drive (RHD) and originated in the UK. This is a true 1980 car. It was brought to the United States by a Classic Mini dealer in North Carolina, then sold to the previous owner and shipped to Missouri. I purchased it in Missouri and brought it back to North Carolina where it resides today.
I have a clean and clear Texas title, in my name (I am military- Texas registration was cheaper). Car is located in Charlotte, NC.
I would be happy to work with your shipper if you aren't able to pick up the car in person. I have shipped two previously owned Classic Minis using uShip and the service ran $400-$600 for cross country. If you need to run a quote through uShip, my zip code is 28173 and I can send you dimensions of the car.
Great little car, TONS of fun to drive!
