I’m not quite sure how they get away with calling it a 1965 Mini, but …..  Also, it should be noted that this Austin Mini is being sold under “fire-sale” circumstances and the price advertised by Hemmings is likely to be way under the car’s true value.

STOP PRESS:

The mini did not sell at Hemmings and is currently being advertised on www.miniguy.com.

    my first car was a 1965 morris mini super deluxe, ordered direct from morris motors ( i worked there) in island blue, and I loved it, I did later have mini clubman in white and beige interior, would still have it if it looked like the featured car., this car car is awesome and is a credit to the owner, would love to have it myself, but I live in Australia.

      Thanks for your comments Bryan. My first Mini was a very early Mini Van with push button starter on the floor and a foot operated dip switch (those were the days). My last Mini was a Mini LS (988 cc) with a Mini Sunshine vacuum operated sliding sunroof. This particular Mini does look great – I love the effect that you can get by deseaming, and this one has been done very well. I also like the look of the twin headlights! Tony
