Hemmings Motors is advertising an interesting 1965 Austin Mini for sale in Santa Monica California.
Classic Car Photography has a soft spot for Minis of all types and we’re always on the lookout for Mini Shows to attend, and for interesting Minis where-ever they may be. We were quite interested to see this somewhat different 1965 Austin Mini advertised for sale in California.
Here’s what the advert has to say:
- Condition: Excellent
- Interior: Black
- Exterior: Silver
- Location: Santa Monica, California, United States
Must sell. Moving. This is a custom build by noted automotive designer Chris Humberstone (Chris Humberstone Coachbuilders, UK) built it up from a new Clubman bodyshell configured to be a left-hand-drive (LHD) model to be exported to U.S. Titled as 1965 Austin – the body shell was deseamed, then fitted with electric windows and an electric sunroof. California titled with current registration. Runs and drives great. Engine: 1275cc — 4-speed, 4-syncro. New Brakes, New Exhaust, New Tires on Mamba Rims.
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.
