Mini 1000 LE Stripey 1976, 72.200 miles £ POA
This car has had two owners from new and has been dry stored for the last 20 years.

The Mini 1000 Special (also referred to as the Mini 1000 Limited Edition or Stripey LE) was the first Limited Edition Mini sold and marketed in the UK.
In the 1970’s Limited Edition versions of any car model were unheard of in the UK and therefore led the way for things to come.

The Mini 1000 Special was also the first round-nosed Mini with eye-ball air vents, twin chrome door mirrors and reclining front seats.
The Brooklands Green exterior colour was an MGB colour and differs from the Brooklands Green used on the 1999 John Cooper LE. A very rare edition indeed as very few Mini 1000 Specials exist.

This particular example is 2 owners from new and has covered just over 77K miles. Seat covers have been fitted and thus the interior seating is bright, undamaged and not faded but could do with a light clean. The original carpeting is missing but we do have a carpet set that is authentic.

The bodywork will need attention, door skins, A panels and wings ideally need replacing as do the sills, the floor pan has been subject to welding in a not overly professional manner. Rear subframe has also been “patch” welded. The previous owners has lost the keys and the ignition switch will need replacing

The V5 is present, the engine runs. the car will be restored by us but in view of our current work load this could NOT be started until Autumn / Winter 2019. This will include stripping the car to a bare shell, full respray and replacing whatever is required to make the car a concours example.
