Hi all,recently been offered a MK1 Mini Countryman that's been dry stored in a barn the last 40 years through family connections and was wondering if anyone has any rough ideas/input on what it's value would be ?

We are picking it up next week so will have some better pictures then when we get it out of the barn but it seems in good solid condition, and fairly original just the steering wheel that isn't, its packed in tight in the barn so pictures aren't great but it's believed to be either a 1965-1967 with only 2,308 miles on the clock.

As said any input will be much appreciated and will post some more pictures next week when we free it from the barn that's about to fall down

looks like a great project - they were being a bit optimistic that the car would go fast enough for the wipers to lift!

Great find !


Worth registering it below if you have not already done:-

"Mini Traveller and Countryman Register"



The Mk1 Forum would also be worth posting on for values and advice:-

From what you can see it looks a great project, its probably a 1966 onwards car as it has the ribbed roof and it has the MK1 grille so probably 66-68.


Does it have a number plate on it?


The centre binnacle appears to have a Wolseley Hornet wooden cover which I would imagine was a popular thing to fit back in the day.


I've got a 1965 one to restore at some point (if I can find it under all the junk in the garage).  Is it a barn find if I put it there myself?

Thanks everyone for the replies so far and information, it does have a registration plate on it but was too hard to get to when we had a look but end of this week when we get it out and collected we will have more information, there isn't a logbook as far as we know so will have to probably fill out a dvla v765 form
