Barn Find: 1961 Austin 7 Mini. Restoration Project!

We really envy people who are lucky enough to open a barn and find an absolute cracker like this.

 

Found in an old storage unit somewhere is haswell, it has only 32,000 genuine miles on it and withh only 2 owners from new, one of which is Uxbrdge Council, this iis looking to be a fantastic restoration proect for someone.

The current owner of the the Austin recons in todays market it will reach upwards of £20,000 in its current state. The car is listed on eBay should you feel tempted to fire a bid in!

Full Gallary

The auction states

AFTER A LOT OF RESEARCH THESE ARE WORTH A MINT RESTORED AND WE HAVE DECIDED TO OFFER IT TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER, WE SEE THIS AT 20K PLUS FINISHED LOOKING AT THE CURRENT MARKET.
IT WAS LAST TAXED AND ON THE ROAD IN 1966 BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IT COMES WITH THE HERITAGE CERTIFICATE. THE VERY COOL ORIGINAL LOG BOOK IN OLD CARDBOARD FORM., COMES WITH THE MODERN CURRENT LOG BOOK AND KEYS.
NOW THIS IS IN DECENT SHAPE CONSIDERING, BUT DO EXPECT TO TAKE IT ON AS A RESTORATION PROJECT AS IT DOES NEED PLENTY WORK, COMES WITH NEW FLOOR PAN PANNELS, THE ENGINE DOES RUN ACCORDING TO THE OLD OWNER AND IT IS THE ORIGINAL ENGINE THATS IN THE CAR BUT WE HAVENT TRIED TO START IT.
IT HAS THE MK2 BACK END WHICH WAS A POPULAR CONVERSION BACK IN THE DAY, IT DOES COME WITH THE MK1 REAR END PANNEL ASWEL, THE TRIM/SEATS HAVE BEEN RESTORED AND ARE BEAUTIFUL (Red and Cream Leather).
So currently ( 2/1/18 @ 19:35 ) it is sitting at £8,988.88p with 52 bids on the car.
Would you try and get hold of it?
