Innocenti Mini Cooper 1300 by Pavesi (1974).
Ultra rare Pavesi conversion (the Italian "Wood & Pickett") in pristine condition.
What a fantastic Mini ! Ordered by a wealthy italian business man and car collector, this Innocenti Mini Cooper 1300 has been completely converted by Carrozzeria Pavesi in Milan. Pavesi made about a dozen of these wonderful conversions. These Minis were made for people who wanted the ultimate specification for their city car, comparable to the standards of Ferrari or Rolls-Royce. In England, these cars were made by Wood & Pickett, while in Italy the conversions were done by Pavesi. Every option was possible, and the finish was from a very high level.
This Innocenti has almost all the available upgrades : full connoly hide interior, wool headlining and carpets, walnut dashboard and door cappings, power windows, tinted glass, electrical boot and fuel cap release (!), special twin sports exhausts, a very typical vinyl roof, wheel arch extensions integrated in the body, and a gold sealed engine block.
Every serious Mini collector who is looking for something very special to add to his collection, should have a look at this wonderful Italian gem. A very exclusive car, which can only go up in value, as classic Minis are becoming very sought after these days. This is one car that won't be available for very long, so early viewing is strongly advised.
