1987 AUSTIN MINI PARK LANE. RARE LTD EDITION. ONLY 32 ON THE ROAD. 58K MILES. RESTORED. £4995.


The Park Lane was one in a series of limited edition Minis based on upmarket London landmarks: Picadilly, Chelsea, Mayfair and the Ritz also featured. Identifying features of the Park Lane included a sports steering wheel, stereo radio/cassette player, “Exclusive” Park Lane interior trim, unique exterior brightwork and a “distinctive black exterior with graphics”. Output was limited to just 1,500 examples. This Park Lane was first registered 5th May 1987. D817 SNT is a very smart example which has seen some major expenditure in recent years. The car has been restored over the last two years, which included fitting a new rear sub-frame, new rear suspension, shock absorbers, brake hoses and pipes, new battery, 2 new tyres, new rubbers, new radiator, new carpets, new wings and panels, exhaust and water pump amongst many other items. The car was also re-sprayed  in Black Tulip. It is believed that the car was taken off the road by the previous owner around 2001 and stored until our 2017. The recorded mileage – 58,269 – is believed to be correct. The car has an MOT to April 2020. The 998cc engine and 4 speed gearbox are in fine working order and push the car along willingly.  There is a good history file of old invoices, MOT's etc showing over £3300 spent recently. At the very reasonable price, this Mini is a very attractive proposition and a practical and economical entry into classic car ownership.
