1966 Austin Mini Countryman Estate
- 4 Speed
- Runs Great!
- smog exempt
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1966 Austin Mark 1 Mini Countryman Estate. She is a near twin to the Morris Mini Traveller. This is the one you want in the right colour and with the right upgrades.
She was recently traded to us from a very well cared stable of other fine British cars in Arizona.
Mini Cooper fans will tell you this is the one you want. Thousands were produced yet relatively few remain in the wild today. Our research shows few outside of England and far fewer Left Hand Drive. The Mini Traveller and Countryman Register was created in 2009 to help locate and preserve the remaining Mini Traveller and Countryman cars.
We think the paint is gorgeous. There are some flaws noticeable upon close inspection. Please review the video and see the photos. The wood is in overall good to excellent condition with one visible small area of decay in the upper passenger rear quarter area. Beautiful chrome and accents. Minator Minilite style wheels really add to the look. Fitted for a US license plate. The exterior door hinges and sliding windows validate this Mark 1 car.
Beautiful interior upholstery, carpet, dash, headliner and door panels. Classic British wood and billet Mountney steering wheel. Nice dash. Wood shift knob. Seat belts for five. Fold down rear seat. Excellent panel fit. Barn doors in the rear.
Floors have been replaced years ago and are solid. See the photos
10” Minator Minilite style wheels with Yokohama A-008 tyres. Tires still have the nips on them. Steel spare wheel and tyre.
Nicely kitted out 998 cc with chrome and aluminum bits. Rebuilt and polished SU carbs and nice aluminum finned valve cover. Exhaust header. She shows a 150 lbs of compression across all four cylinders. Engine plate reads 99H683V-H659
The 4 speed manual transmission is working properly.
Brakes serviced. New Master cylinder, wheel cylinders, lines and fluid flush. See photos. Hydrolastic suspension.
Fresh service, turnkey and ready to go. New Interstate battery with warranty.
The trim is in good to excellent shape. See pics and video.
The glass is in good to excellent condition. Correct sliding windows. A latch is missing in the photos but is now installed.
The odometer shows 74022 miles. The title confirms the mileage as accurate.

Find an Estate in excellent condition with great eye appeal and you have a very few cars indeed. Given the extreme scarcity of available cars, this Mini represents an outstanding value that can be enjoyed immediately as well as being an appreciating investment in automotive art.
Please come inspect this great Mini before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 51 year old used car. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car.
Please enjoy the walk around tour and test drive
