Manufactured in the U.K., this righthand drive 1975 Austin Mini Mark III 850 is powered by an 848cc engine and comes finished in orange over a black interior. It is said to have been treated to a restoration in 2010 by a previous owner including a respray in its factory-specified color. This classic Mini is now being offered for auction on behalf of its long-term owner by its seller out of New York.

Refinished in its original shade of orange, this 1975 Mini features 10” aftermarket wheels wrapped in Yokohama tires. Equipment includes front fog lights, a chrome grille and headlight surrounds, black fender flares, and a single exhaust outlet. The seller indicates that the car's paint shows some signs of age, detailed images are provided in the gallery.

Inside, this Mini features a righthand drive cockpit adorned with black vinyl upholstery. Equipment includes a classic center speedometer, roll-up windows, an aftermarket shift knob, and additional gauges below the steering wheel. The seller states that all gauges, electronics, and accessories are fully functional and a new black carpet kit is included with the sale.

This Mini is equipped with an 848cc inline-four engine sending up to 36 HP and 43 lb.-ft. of torque to the front wheels by way of a 4-speed manual transmission. The seller has reportedly fitted a new battery, oil cap, throttle cable, choke cable, and wires to fog and taillights, in addition to performing an oil & filter change and fuel system flush. The seller recommends that the front right suspension components be refreshed.

This sale will include a spare tire, a car cover, the black carpet kit, some documentation, and a clean title.

 

The seller would like you to know: “This is a cool little True British RHD Mini Classic with a 4-speed manual. The bright orange color to me makes it a standout. It’s a nice mini that can be driven as it's not perfect but seems to be a solid car. It’s a perfect car to fix up a bit more and enjoy for a reasonable entry into the classic car world. Simple not complex and fun to drive.”

    @doc18015 I just loaded up many photos of the window glass. The roll up windows have some very fine scratches from up and down in spots but really not very noticable unless you really looking for it. All other windows are like new in my opinion check out photos I took after cleaning them. Dust was the culprit in the early photos you see.

    Hello
    I just want to note some of the close up photos of the glass as dusty its not any damage on windows its from car sitting in garage all summer under a cover that is a bit dusty. I will get some better photos of windows after clean them.
