The Mark IV City and Mayfair version of the Classic Mini was introduced in 1976. It has a front rubber mounted subframe with single tower bolts and the rear frame had some larger bushes introduced. Twin stalk indicators were introduced with larger foot pedals. From 1977 onwards, the rear indicator lamps had the reverse lights incorporated in them. In 1980, the engine was uprated to the improved A-Plus unit from the Metro. From the Mark IV onward, many special limited-production editions of the Mini were offered. Limited editions generally came equipped with a unique combination of interior and exterior trim and special decals. Examples include Mini 1100 Special, Mini 1000, Mini Rio, Sprite, Mini Mayfair, Mini Park Lane, Mini Cooper RSP, Mini Flame, Mini Red Hot, Mini Jet Black, Mini Racing and the Mini Monza.
This car is a total time-warp piece. The last owner had this car for twenty three years and purchased it when it had covered only 6,000 miles. It has always been garaged, and is unrestored and absolutely stunning. With this mileage, it is the equivalent of a three year old car and that is exactly what it looks like now, a very well kept three year old Mini. These Minis will take of in value in the near future, a chance to get an outstanding one at a very reasonable price.
