Launched in June 1989, the limited-edition Mini 30 celebrated the car's 30th birthday and was based around the Mini Mayfair fitted with the 998cc engine. It was offered in Cherry Red (COG-BLVC843) or black (PMA-BLVC90) and was fitted with chrome bumpers and grille, a dedicated decal set, a security coded stereo and a set of Minilite-style alloy wheels. The black and red half-leather interior was common to both car colours. 3,000 cars were destined for the UK market, 2000 in red and 1000 in black. A nice touch was the gift of a leather-bound copy of Rob Golding's book "Mini", not that generous when you consider the list price at the time was a whopping £5,599.
The car offered today is finished in Cherry Red and is currently not UK registered, so in essence, is a brand new car that has covered just 24 delivery miles. Supplied with the car is the original bill of sale from J.J. Balmforth (1950) Ltd of Ormskirk Lancs, to the tune of £6,095. The car is described in as new condition as one would expect and comes with its original book pack and two sets of keys. Certainly one for the collector.
