PRLog - Jun. 26, 2012 - A 1960 Austin Seven 850, with just 2,600 miles on the clock and with virtually every component an original, is surely one of the rarest models up for auction at the Silverstone Classic Sale on 21st July.

Not surprisingly, this exceptional car, estimated at £20,000 to £25,000, is expected to be one of the most sought after lots at the sale hosted Silverstone Auctions.

Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions, said: “This has to be one of the lowest mileage 1960 Minis in existence and is an important example of the model.

“If its rarity wasn’t enough to excite Mini aficionados then its immaculate condition is, having survived unscathed for more than fifty years. I would go as far to say that I’ve never seen such a well presented model of its type. It’s an honour for Silverstone Auctions to be able to offer it at our Classic Sale.”

Indeed, this car was only driven for the first two years of its life, hence the exceptionally low mileage, before being retired into heated storage.

The result is bodywork that is in an immaculate rust-free condition, while the vinyl interior retains a fresh factory feel.

If that wasn’t enough to excite Mini enthusiasts and collectors, then the car comes complete with the original Austin Seven key ring, spare keys, original handbook, tax disc holder, rubber boot mat and jack and wheel brace.

There’s even the last tax disc bought for the car which expired in 1962!
