The Austin Maestro was produced from 1983 to 1987 by British
Leyland and from 1988 until 1995 by Rover Group. The car was
produced at the former Morris plant in Cowley, Oxford although
today, the redeveloped factory produces the BMW Mini. The Maestro
incorporated many novel and pioneering features for its class. It
had a bonded laminated windscreen, homofocal headlamps,
body-coloured plastic bumpers, an electronic engine management
system, adjustable front seat belt upper anchorage positions, an
asymmetrically split rear seat and a 12,000-mile service
interval.

First registered on 1st November 1988 to Stanley Hodge of St.
Ives, Cambridgeshire, this Maestro is a one owner example and has
covered a mere 9,609 miles from new. The detailed service history,
dating from 1989 through to 2014, was carried out by local motor
engineers Purser & Luxford and more recently by Thurlow Nunn of
Cambridgeshire. The MoT history confirms the low mileage. Also
included in the file are the invoice for the first MoT test
certificate and service as well as a current MoT test certificate
valid until August 2017. The original book pack and V5 document
accompany the car along with two sets of keys. Finished in grey
with a grey interior, this charming Maestro is a rare car indeed
with such low mileage, ownership history and condition making it
highly collectible.
