This fabulous Austin Mini Mayfair Automatic has covered just 22000 miles from new and had just one owner from 1986 to 2013. D251 GWW was supplied new by Appleyard of Harrogate, first registered on 1st August 1986. The Mini still retains its original Appleyard After Sales Care passport with service book, handbook, consumer guide and entertainment handbooks.
Having spent its entire life in Yorkshire, the Mini changed hands for the first time in 2013, heading to an elderly retired gentleman in North London. The car only spent 18 months in the Capital, covering in the region of 500 miles and being treated to over £1000 work to include new engine mountings, new front brake discs and pads, new front calipers, flexi hoses, inner and outer CV boots, new radiator, stabiliser bushes, shock absorbers, steering rack boots, track rod ends and full service to include new HT leads and distributor cap. We sold the Mini to its third owner, a long term regular customer in York who has covered local mileage in the York area, enjoying using the car during summer months with several trips to the Golf Club. We serviced the car and prepared it for a new MOT, finding no significant work being required. Having thoroughly enjoyed the car, the York based last owner has now part exchanged the Mini for a Triumph TR6.
D251 GWW presents beautifully and still retains its original dealer sticker and totally original brown velour interior which is in excellent condition. The Metallic Gold paintwork has an excellent finish and the bodywork is of a very high standard. The underside is also excellent having never required major work and the car is a real time warp. This Mini has clearly been well cared for throughout its life and is a credit to its previous care and maintenance. Finding a similar, automatic example with low ownership, low mileage and so much originality could prove very difficult. With Mini values increasing rapidly, this offers an excellent opportunity to purchase a very special car that offers superb value. The Mini has driven to us from York, and is well and truly ready to go in excellent mechanical order, driving like it would have when just one or two years old.
