This is a rare and interesting 1979 Mini 1100cc special convertible conversion, with a super low recorded mileage, and in very nice condition. The car is believed to be a Pan-Am conversion. It is described by the vendor as a super fun car, that has benefitted from extensive work having been carried out over the past few years to maintain the car in this high standard, including a new MOT and service, a new blue hood recently fitted, new sills fitted, plus what looks like a new or refurbed rear sub frame, and some brake work carried out.

The last owner has had the car since 2014. The exterior paint work is in very good condition with no signs of rust etc, the rear boot floor is in very good condition, as are the floor sections. This vehicle during its conversion process was extensively strengthened and is solid underneath. The vehicle has been restored in the past and is in its original colour. The Mini 1100cc Special came with special edition alloy wheels, 2 colour choices, upgraded bumpers, and there is also a hood cover with the car. Mini only made a limited amount of Mini convertibles towards the end of the run, and it is believed approximately only 300 were built. With these vehicles commanding prices well in excess of £10,000 and up, this 70s car should be great value and fun motoring for this summer.
