1968 Austin Mini Panelvan

1968 Austin Mini Panelvan
This is a 1968 Austin Mini Panelvan built in South Africa.

The car has recently had a full bare metal repaint and is mostly restored.  The good and bad points are as follows:

  • Body stripped, sandblasted and bare metal repaint in original Clipper blue (Inside, outside and underneath);
  • Body originally pretty straight with very little rust to start off with;
  • New brake and brake lines with Silicone brake fluid;
  • New tyres on std rims with new OEM hub caps and wheel trims;
  • New carpets;
  • New battery;
  • Seats professionally recovered;
  • New headlining professionally fitted;
  • NOS seat belt set fitted;
  • New tie rod ends;
  • New CV boots;
  • New door and window rubbers all round;
  • New polyurethane suspension bushes;
  • Complete new exhaust;
  • Comes with original jack and wheel spanner;
  • Comes with original workshop manual and parts manual;
  • New lockable fuel filler cap;
  • New sender unit installed in fuel tank;
  • 1275cc head fitted as upgrade;
  • Electrical system converted to alternator;
  • Matching numbers;

  • Good quality paint off the gun, still needs a final cut and polish;
  • Patch repair on drivers floor - new floor panel comes with the car (photos available);
  • Driver's side sill needs to be replaced - new one comes with the car (photos available);
  • Fuel gauge doesn't work.  New sender unit fitted, not sure if it is a wiring issue, fuel gauge or voltage regulator;
  • Engine runs pretty well, but smokes a little;
  • Slight oil leak on seal behind harmonic balancer (Complete new gasket set comes with the car);
  • Windscreen has a few scratches, but no chips or cracks;
  • Door and bonnet gaps need to be adjusted;
The "restoration" on this car started off well, but it looks as though the previous owner lost interest and rushed to finish it.  With a little finishing off, this will make a very nice car in the end.  Most of the work is done and what has been done has been done pretty well.

The car comes with its import papers from South Africa and has not yet been registered in Australia.
