1974 Mini Leyland Clubman Estate

Description

In 1969, under the ownership of British Leyland, the Mini was given a facelift by stylist Roy Haynes, who had previously worked for Ford. The restyled version was called the Mini Clubman, and has a squarer frontal look, using the same indicator/sidelight assembly as the Austin Maxi. The Mini Clubman was intended to replace the upmarket Riley and Wolseley versions. A new model, dubbed the 1275 GT, was slated as the replacement for the 998 cc Mini Cooper (the 1,275 cc Mini Cooper S continued alongside the 1275 GT for two years until 1971). The Clubman Estate replaced the Countryman and Traveller. The original round-front design remained in production alongside the Clubman and 1275 GT.

This wonderful example of the Mini Clubman, presented in the original red paint with beige interior, was first delivered to Italy. The car is said to have a wonderful patina and maintains the wooden dashboard and rev counter from the day of delivery. We are told that the engine, transmission, suspension and brakes are all in excellent condition and that the car drives very well. These are very rare cars to find in such original condition and certainly represents a good prospect for the discerning collector.
