This Minivan was originally supplied to a painter and decorator from Essex by BL dealer Harvey Hudson of Woodford, London. It was used for 10 years until the clutch went in 1992 and it was laid up in a barn for 25 years, only emerging in late 2017. It was restored from summer 2018 to July 2023 with major works including reconditioned 998cc engine, new front and rear subframes, new floors, panels, sills, A-sections adjacent to the bulkhead and front wings all totalling circa £2000. The welding came to around £2500 and there was a professional respray in Old English White, at a cost of circa £3500. New upholstery and seats added a further £500 while new steel wheels and tyres were £200. A full set of Ipswich alloys and/or Minilites are available at cost. The van is described as running very well with no issues. 

The van was registered in November 1982 and is showing 50,777 miles on its odometer. As an historic vehicle, it is now MoT-exempt. Paperwork includes the V5C, old tax discs and a large stack of invoices relating to the restoration. There's also the owner's handbook, parts catalogue, brochures and Mini Owner's Survival Manual book, plus spare keys.
