Known History

This car is interesting because it corresponds to a particular version of the Mini. Launched in 1969, the Mini Clubman received a grille redesigned by Roy Haynes, a former Ford stylist. This model was designed to replace the high-end versions of the Riley and Wolseley models. Therefore, in its more modern aspect, the Clubman hid interesting features such as the 1275cc engine as in the Cooper S, as well as a better finish and equipment, with a more complete dashboard and more elaborate seats. The Clubman disappeared from the catalogue in 1980 and the car we are offering is one of the last produced. In a rare fully glass station wagon version, it features a steering wheel with a wooden rim, a wooden dashboard, leatherette and tartan fabric upholstery, as well as Minilite rims.

This car was restored over several years, until 2018, with an astoundingly good result. The quality of the work is amazing, especially with regard to the bodywork and paintwork, the car gives the impression of coming just out off the assembly line. It has covered only 400km since its restoration and now shows 34,888km on the odometer.

It is an interesting opportunity to acquire an original version of the famous Mini, more spacious thanks to its station wagon body, and with a magnificent appearance.
