Original Mini Jubilee

YEAR: 1978
MILEAGE: 74,000




What a wonderful and exciting little car this Mini is! This is an original Mini Jubilee. There is not another anywhere with this provenance. Anywhere! On the New Vehicle Order Form from Henlys dated 05/01/78 that is with the Mini, it states colour as “JUBILEE”. This is not copy.  With one owner for the first 30 years of 41, warranted mileage and near perfect bodywork, a wonderfully tidy engine and bay and a great interior we challenge you to find another this good!

History & Provenance.

The Mini has a history file like no other. Invoices for every service, with Dealer Job Cards. Every MOT and tax disc. It’s all in the file for you to go through. It starts with the original deposit receipts and end with the most recent MOT in February 2019, a comprehensive list has been added to the advert images.

Exterior Condition

As you’d expect, the Jubilee Mini looks simply stunning. As usual there are one or two very small aged related marks. At 41 yrs old we can all do with a touch-in.

Interior Condition

New carpets were fitted around 1,000 miles and look like new. The dash, clocks, switch gear are in all in good working order. The Regal Blue seats are in lovely condition. If you reach under the driver’s side seat to adjust the position, you can feel the vinyl is slightly brittle and has split slightly with age. We’re just being honest. The rear seats are near perfect. All the door cards are in great condition and the headlining is great with no damage.

Engine & Transmission

The near bomb proof 850 A series actually goes just like a bomb when you drive it. Very happy whizzing about town, but also equally happy cruising on dual carriageways keeping up with modern traffic. Both the engine and box are free from leaks, noises, rattles or grumbles.

Wheels, tyres & brakes

The Jubilee has had Cooper S alloys fitted. They look good. All the tyres are in good order. The brakes all do what they should and feel fine.

Additional Information

From its condition, its colour scheme, right through to its documented history this really is a unique car like no other. We very much encourage test drives, this lovely Mini is no different. We also welcome any inspection whatsoever.
