Marvellous Mini Comes to Charterhouse

The owner of a Mini, which was given to her when she was just 17 in 1981, is looking for a new home in the Charterhouse online auction of classic cars on Wednesday 11th November.

“The ownerdecided that after nearly 40 years of ownership it is time to let someone else enjoy the car.” Commented Richard Bromell. “Classic Mini’s remain hugely popular with enthusiasts. Over the years we have had some great success selling Mini’s like the garage stored 1965 Mini Cooper S sold in our last online classic car auction for £28,600.”

Finished in the attractive colour of Teal blue with an Old English white roof the car has remained in a largely original condition. In the later part of the 1980’s, the owner worked abroad for a few years. During this time, the car remained with her father although he told her had sold it.

When she moved back to the England, she was delighted to see her father had kept her beloved Mini safe for her return. Needless to say she forgave him for saying he had sold it.

Now entered into the Charterhouse online auction of classic cars on 11th November, this charming little Mini is estimated to sell for £5,000-6,000. Whether it will be bought by a father for his 17 year old daughter only time will tell.
