Mrs Elsie Williams ordered her new MkIII Mini on 13th November 1972 from Dove Group Croydon and chose the very 1970’s combination of harvest gold with olive trim, reputedly one of only six ordered in this combination.
The history folder includes the original build sheet, Passport to Service (17 Dove service stamps up to 1989 & stamp; invoices from the local garage there after) lubrication chart, driver’s handbook, dealers key fobs, and lots of invoices and hand-written records. The car passed to Mrs Williams’s son-in-law in 2004 when she gave up driving and he commenced a rolling recommission including rear sub-frame, clutch master/slave cylinder, alternator, CV joints, shock absorbers etc.
This one family/two owner mini has a warranted mileage of just 68,000 and is original, apart from a later radiator grill, with excellent floor pans & bodywork. Lift the carpets and the floor pans are still in harvest gold with a stunning interior. This lovely car is an excellent investment and will give years of pleasure to the lucky new owner.
