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.”
