Description for Mini Classic Mini 1966

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1966 Austin Mark 1 Mini Countryman Estate. She is a near twin to the Morris Mini Traveller. This is the one you want in the right colour and with the right upgrades.

She was recently traded to us from a very well cared stable of other fine British cars in Arizona.

Rarity

Mini Cooper fans will tell you this is the one you want. Thousands were produced yet relatively few remain in the wild today. Our research shows few outside of England and far fewer Left Hand Drive. The Mini Traveller and Countryman Register was created in 2009 to help locate and preserve the remaining Mini Traveller and Countryman cars.

Exterior

We think the paint is gorgeous. There are some flaws noticeable upon close inspection. Please review the video and see the photos. The wood is in overall good to excellent condition with one visible small area of decay in the upper passenger rear quarter area. Beautiful chrome and accents. Minator Minilite style wheels really add to the look. Fitted for a US license plate. The exterior door hinges and sliding windows validate this Mark 1 car.

Interior

Beautiful interior upholstery, carpet, dash, headliner and door panels. Classic British wood and billet Mountney steering wheel. Nice dash. Wood shift knob. Seat belts for five. Fold down rear seat. Excellent panel fit. Barn doors in the rear.

Floors

Floors have been replaced years ago and are solid. See the photos

Wheels, Tires

10" Minator Minilite style wheels with Yokohama A-008 tyres. Tires still have the nips on them. Steel spare wheel and tyre.

Engine

Nicely kitted out 998 cc with chrome and aluminum bits. Rebuilt and polished SU carbs and nice aluminum finned valve cover. Exhaust header. She shows a 150 lbs of compression across all four cylinders. Engine plate reads 99H683V-H659

Transmission

The 4 speed manual transmission is working properly.

Braking, Suspension

Brakes serviced. New Master cylinder, wheel cylinders, lines and fluid flush. See photos. Hydrolastic suspension.

Service

Fresh service, turnkey and ready to go. New Interstate battery with warranty.

Trim

The trim is in good to excellent shape. See pics and video.

Glass

The glass is in good to excellent condition. Correct sliding windows. A latch is missing in the photos but is now installed.

Odometer

The odometer shows 74022 miles. The title confirms the mileage as accurate.

DMV / Documentation

The title is clear and all documentation is included. No back fees are due. No smog is required for California residents. Very low cost Antique registration and insurance for most US States. A binder pictures, detailed information, receipts and specs.

Car cover / Spares

A new fitted car cover suitable for outdoor usage is included along with a small box of spares

Comparables

There are very few comparable Mini Countryman Estate cars for sale at this time. Perhaps you can find a car that needs work or find the more common coupe. Find an Estate in excellent condition with great eye appeal and you have a very few cars indeed. Given the extreme scarcity of available cars, this Mini represents an outstanding value that can be enjoyed immediately as well as being an appreciating investment in automotive art.

Inspection

Please come inspect this great Mini before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 51 year old used car. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that's what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car.

Hello and thanks for all of the kind comments and great questions!

  • A note to bidders: We have changed out the alternator as it was misbehaving and charging erratically. The warranted replacement is now installed and is slightly different in appearance than the one in the photos.
  • Yes, those are seat bolsters placed under the rear seat track. The gentleman who owned the car ahead of us was short in stature and these were made to raise the seat slightly for his comfort. They are removable.
  • We have not listed this car with any of the clubs or registries.
  • Good luck bidders!
