1975 Austin Mini Convertible Yellow drop-top conversion 292 Miles
This 1975 Austin Mini convertible is a well-done drop-top conversion that's going to turn even more heads than a coupe. Yet, it never loses classic style and nimble feeling that keeps it a legend.

We know you love the look of these original Minis. The shape is unmistakable, and you can't help but smile at this icon. And this one was built to really maximize its status. After all, a classic Mini is already seldom seen, and a custom convertible will be a once-in-a-lifetime sighting for many. The drop-top conversion was a professional setup commissioned by the consignor 25 years ago in Germany. It was done with a well-contoured top that folds and stores in the trunk. They even thought of the right details like a soft tonneau cover and added bracing in the rockers. And it's not just the roof that makes this distinctive. It has the Cooper performance look with the right badging, flared fenders, and wide OZ Racing wheels. Plus, it's hard to be inconspicuous in a car painted a shade of yellow reserved for Ferraris.

The black folding roof makes for a nice contrast against the yellow exterior, and so the same goes for when you take the top down to show off the full black interior. These Minis were famous for being far more spacious than their size suggests, and that's especially true when you have unlimited headroom. It's especially nice up front with two well-bolstered bucket seats finished in leather and cloth. You've got a stylish wood dash, working heater, and full set of Smiths gauges. There's even an AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth tucked away in the glovebox. And while the Mini is a famous British car, this one is steered from the left-hand side.

Under the hood is the correct 998cc four-cylinder engine. This A-Series motor is a well-known and widely used powerplant that found a home in plenty of British vehicles, which makes parts availability quite easy. In fact, it even has a new fuel pump. It has nice driving features like the rarely-seen four-speed automatic transmission. The control of the four-speed manual transmission combines the quick nature with the steering to deliver a car that feels like a go-kart for the streets. Plus, front disc brakes and grippy sport tires give you the kind of handling that reminds you how the Mini took down giants on the racetrack.
