AROnline is offering readers the opportunity to buy one very special Mini. Dr. Alex Moulton, Hydrolastic and Hydragas guru – as well as one of the industry’s most respected figures, is selling his 1997 Mini and here’s your chance to own a piece of history.
The car has been owned since new by Dr. Moulton, has covered a minimal mileage and has been fastidiously maintained. The car’s odometer reading is 10,353, there’s tax until May and the car will come with a year’s MoT as the current certificate expires on 5 April. There’s a Longman-modified engine, a leather interior and a walnut dashboard. The suspension set-up has standard rubber springs but adjustable dampers and also has adjustable bush rods with a different shape of the cam plate at the top.
Step this way, then, if you’re looking for an original, low-mileage Mini with a significant previous owner. Drop an email to Keith Adams at AROnline with your questions and, if you’re seriously interested and want a closer look at the car, we’ll arrange a visit to Dr. Moulton’s house. We can’t under-estimate the importance and significance of this car and its owner – this truly is a unique opportunity to own a significant piece of British car history.
Dr. Moulton is looking for around £10,000.
