Auction houses like to talk about a vehicle as being a time capsule from a bygone era. H&H Classics has uncovered such a car — a 1967 Mini 850 Deluxe driven only 36,000 miles before being put into storage in 1983.

“My father purchased GBV121E brand new in 1967 for his early retirement,” the consignor told the auction company. “The car was used mainly for holidays; my parents loved touring the Highlands of Scotland as well as North Yorkshire.

“My father was diagnosed with ME (Myalgic Encephalopathy, more commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) in the early ‘80s. The Mini was very little used and in 1983 it was taken off the road.

“When my father was told he would never drive again he gave the car to me. It was sheeted and raised off the floor supported with wooden blocks under the sub frame to keep the weight off the suspension and wheels and never moved again until this year. So the car only ever had one driver.”
