DESCRIPTION

1982 Mini Mayfair - 1 Owner - Original Unrestored Condition
26,000 Miles, barely 1,000 in last 20 years!

FSH & MOT

VERY RARE

This is a very rare Mini indeed having just one owner from new It has been garaged its entire life and one glance at this car in reality illustrates that. It is no exaggeration to say that the condition inside and out is simply stunning especially when you consider this is all original and has had no restoration.

This car has been MOT’d and serviced every year since new and the huge amount of paperwork reflects that. The total mileage covered is a shade over 26K with barely 1K covered in the last 20 years!

It is unlikely you will ever find an opportunity to purchase a 40-year-old Mini in such amazing, original condition again.

Bodywork

The bodywork of this Mini is all original and in fantastic condition, with all the panel gaps around the aligning well as you would expect as they are all original and there have been no welding repairs.

Having been garaged during its lifetime and undersealed by the supplying dealer there is not much to mention as regards condition, save to say the odd pin mark here and there.

Paint
Finished in a deep and glossy black paint, the colour of the car looks stunning from every angle benefiting from regular polishing by the owner, reflecting it having been a cherished, un-restored low mileage example after all.

Wheels and Tyres

The Mayfair was equipped with 10" wheels from factory, featuring Mayfair centre caps. The wheels on this example look to be in good usable condition with some slight signs of surface corrosion being original un-restored examples. A light refurb would bring them up to a great standard.

The wheels are wrapped in Falken Sincera SN-807's dated 2007 at the front and at the rear you'll find Kings Tires which appear a little more dated than the front pair, but with a good amount of tread

Glass and Trim

The glass looks great, with no chips, cracks, or discolouration. The window seals are absolutely fine and in line with the condition of rest of the car.<>

The chrome bumpers, grille, door, boot handles, and window surrounds all look in excellent condition, clearly benefitting from having been garaged for 40 years.

Interior

As you would expect for a Mayfair the cabin is fitted with the velour trim in blue velour trimmed cabin, all totally original, even featuring the stock factory fitted radio.

Seats and Carpets

Fitted with light blue soft-touch seats throughout, which have really stood the test of time and present very well in line with the age and mileage of the car. With cloth seats on a car of this age, you'll often see wear, but not on this example. The original owner has clearly treated this car with love and care.

A similar story is told with the headlining, door cards and carpets, reflecting the cars low mileage over the past 40 years.

Dashboard

A classic two-dial set up with speed, fuel, and oil temp present and all working correctly as do the heater controls and the original radio.

Engine and Gearbox

Fitted with Mini's classic 998cc inline-four engine, a very reliable and practical choice that packs 40BHP and after a few turns of the key and choke adjustment this Mini starts superbly from cold and drives smoothly.

Suspension and Brakes

This Mini has always been mechanically looked after, which is evident from the extensive paperwork from the one and only custodian.

Electrics and Other

All of the electrics are functional and operational, in line with the rest of the condition of the car.

History and Paperwork

A very well-maintained Mayfair, coming to market and from December 2022 will be exempt from Tax & MOT.

A very lovely Mini Mayfair with one caring owner from new, and a low mileage of just 26,000miles with condition to match, something of a rarity when it comes to Mini's. This car really has been thoroughly taken care of over its 40 years and has barely covered 1,000miles in the last 20 years, but still been kept up to date with MOTs etc. Much of the mileage was earlier in the cars life as documented by the service book and invoices.
