In 1969, under the ownership of British Leyland, the Mini was given a facelift by stylist Roy Haynes, who had previously worked for Ford. The restyled version was called the Mini Clubman, and has a squarer frontal look, using the same indicator/sidelight assembly as the Austin Maxi. The Mini Clubman was intended to replace the upmarket Riley and Wolseley versions. A new model, dubbed the 1275 GT, was slated as the replacement for the 998 cc Mini Cooper, the 1,275 cc Mini Cooper S continued alongside the 1275 GT for two years until 1971. The Clubman Estate replaced the Countryman and Traveller. The original round-front design remained in production alongside the Clubman and 1275 GT.
The 1976 Mini Clubman offered here is described by the vendor to be in fabulous condition inside and out, with the underbody in perfect condition after a £1,500 professional rustproofing service has been carried out. The car is mechanically excellent after a full check over when removed from storage. The low mileage of 29,000 is warranted by the vendor, and shown by the condition of the car. The whole car is very original, mechanically excellent, and has just had a full check having been stored for a while.
All in all, a very attractive little car, and this a a rare opportunity to buy a Clubman in this condition. Ideal for a new enthusiast or the collector.
