Garage Find: 272 Original Mile Mini

by Michael Satterfield 

With only 272 original miles this 1968 Mk1 Morris Minor-Mini Super De Luxe is the most original Mini on the planet. The car which has been kept as delivered for over 50 years even still has the original plastic on the seats. Built in 1967 it is one of the last Mk1 Minis off the line and was originally delivered to a Mrs. Jones who had purchased the car with the intent of learning how to drive. When she decided to give up on driving, the car was parked away in the garage until just a few years ago.

The Mini is Old English White with Tartan Red interior and still has the pre-delivery protective plastics and cardboard throughout the interior. Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, and Chairman of Woodham Mortimer says: “This is a truly unique example of the iconic Mini and it is a privilege for Woodham Mortimer to offer it for sale. The car offers the unrepeatable opportunity to own what must be the world’s most original example of Britain’s most-loved classic car.”

The car is on display in Woodham Mortimer’s showroom in Maldon, Essex or you can find out more information on
