Restored & Upgraded 1986 Austin Mini Mayfair Ltd Edition 1300cc 58bhp with 800 Miles

Being beautifully restored, this 1986 Austin Mini Mayfair Limited Edition has the Sportspack Wide Body and the performance upgrades to match.

Being fitted with a completely rebuilt larger bore Mini Metro 1300cc engine and gearbox just 800 miles ago which produced 58bhp on the rolling road, she drives beautifully and accelerates rapidly. Having ourselves fully serviced her engine, had her professionally tuned to optimise her performance she is ready to enjoy and you will have a lot of fun.

Other upgrades include brand new GAZ adjustable shocks all round (you can just her ride bumpiness to your liking), brand new premium Yokohama tyres (extra grip) and a new radiator and silicone cooling pipes. Most importantly she has also been upgraded to servo assisted brakes and fitted with 8.4 inch vented discs and four pot callipers on her front and had her rear brakes serviced so you have the stopping power to match the acceleration (although Mini’s never stop particularly quickly, they are terrifying all round).

Further upgrades. Inside, she has brand new red carpets covering solid floors and matching red seatbelts with a contrasting black headlining and modern premium sound system (Kenwood and JBL Speakers, real quality). Outside she is fitted with the Sportspack wide arches covering brand new 13 inch JBW wheels fitted with brand new Yokohama Tyres (£500) giving her grip, as well as lots of new chrome-work. Her front grill spotlights are brand new, bit not wired up.


Underneath she is totally solid with excellent correct vented sills and floors and a recently new subframe as well as a performance twin port exhaust. She has been fully undersealed to protect her from corrosion. So you have nothing to worry about.

She is supplied with 12 months MOT with no advisories, ready to enjoy. Being first registered on the 1st of March 1986 she will soon be eligible for free road tax and she will soon not require MOT’s. She has a large history folder full of old MOT’d and invoices. There are no records of any accidents.


Notes From a Previous Owner

Mr Price, a large car collector,  first purchased her in 2014 and funded the majority of the restoration works and upgrades before his passing. Mr Price has left a note regarding the Odometer. The note reads that her original factory fitted Odometer’s circuit board failed in 2016 and a new Odometer was purchased and this has two ramifications. Firstly, the new Odometer reads approximately 12 mph slower than her actual speed (you get used to this). Secondly, in 2016 her mileage records jump from 66,300 to 867 miles in 2018, reflecting the reset. Accordingly, we approximate her total mileage to be around 68,000 miles from new and 800 miles since the engine and gearbox upgrade and rebuild.


Condition Notes

She is in exceptional condition throughout. The only thing to note is a small area of the standard classic Mini bubbling which is limited to the top of her passenger wing, otherwise she is solid and in very good condition throughout. If you wanted to make her absolutely perfect then we have been quoted £250-300 to rectify the bubbling area. Her spotlights aren't currently wired up but this could be easily done :).

  • We guarantee that your Mini will be mechanically perfect at the time of the sale. Mechanically perfect means that your Mini will be roadworthy with a recent MOT, that everything on your Mini will work correctly and that your Mini will be ready to enjoy.


    However, it is important to note that Mini's are classic cars opposed to brand new cars, classic cars will have wear and tear on all parts opposed to being built to a new standard and accordingly they  will require ongoing maintenance and we cannot be held liable for any ongoing maintenance after the time of the sale. That being said, we have a dedicated phone line to assist you in maintaining your Mini and sourcing replacement parts.
