When we were looking for a second Mini for our classic car hire business, we knew we wanted a vehicle with a solid shell and good provenance. We stumbled across this white one for sale privately and immediately were drawn to it. Presented in Old English white with a tartan red interior, it screamed nostalgia.
The car was originally sent from oxford, where it was made, to South Africa where it was sold to the police for and used as a cop car! It spent most of its life catching criminals before it then changed hands and made its way back to the UK where it was partially restored.
Being totally rust free and serviced regularly, it was a good basis to continue its restoration and make it fit for hire. A complete engine rework and an entirely new tartan red interior were added along with modifications such as front disc brakes, a Bluetooth stereo and new tyres. The hydrolastic suspension is set to original BMC factory standards so the ride is smooth as silk
Our white Mini is ready for hire and already many have enjoyed experiences in this former police vehicle. We don’t recommend trying to catch criminals though! Those days are over for her, but you can certainly catch some rays on a sunny day whilst out on hire.
