Hey Mini fans! Take a look at this super cute 1978 Austin Mini RHD model! Looking good in dark green & white, sporting sharp rally wheels and radials.

This guy came into the U.S. from South Africa, and shows a documented 50,104 KM (31,132 miles) on the odometer. This is a nice driver quality car; enjoy it as is, or morph it into your dream mini. These are really cool cars- more spacious in the driver area than you would think based on the micro car exterior. The interior is simple vinyl, and in very good condition. The 1275 CC 4-cylinder happily propels a 4-speed manual gearbox, making this pocket-rocket super fun to drive.

These original Mini's are getting hard to find and range from not so great to outstanding. This one is somewhere between the two scales, and looks fine as it. It is a cool car to knock around town in and they get a lot of attention... more so than modern interpretations largely because they are tiny with tons of personality. So before you fall asleep in a modern, no-frills depreciating box, consider this a solution!
