For Sale: 1961 Austin Mini in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

For sale in our Fort Lauderdale showroom is this amazing 1961 Austin Mini. You think you have seen everything, then a car like this Mini rolls into the showroom. This Mini was professionally built and it comes with “more power”. It has a 2 Liter Honda VTEC engine in combination with a Honda B16 LS 5 speed manual transmission. This ride is absolutely fantastic. This Austin Mini comes with a V8 Killer attitude and who would know that this little car takes off like a rocket. Not only is it fast and a pleasure to drive, it is also in super nice condition. Paint looks beautiful and the custom interior is a perfect match to the car. Here are just some details about the Mini to give you an idea of what this car is all about: Honda B20 Block with a red top B16 VTEC Head; Honda B16 LS 5 speed transmission with custom machined 3.6 FD gears; Quaife ATB Helical Limited Slip Differential; Wilwood front Disc Brakes; Wilwood Racing Pedal Kit with 3x Master Cylinders; and a lot more. The list is just too long to post here. This Mini would be a great car for someone who looks for a unique car that you probably won’t find a second time – not even close. While test driving the Austin I couldn’t stop smiling. People pointing with their fingers at you and when the V8 gets smaller and smaller in the rear view mirror you will know: YOU WON!!! With this car you just can’t lose. It is absolutely beautiful; crazy fast; it handles like a race car and with some space you can park it in your living room. Even for a bigger guy the car is comfortable. I am 6.2 and I had to move the seat forward to reach the gas pedal. People will talk about this car at every car show or where ever it shows up. Just a great classic car that puts a smile on everybody’s face and it is ready for the new owner. Take the Mini to/on the track; take the family out for ice cream or just have fun driving around the town. Wir sprechen deutsch. Let it ride!!!
