Mini Clubman Estate 1100. The end… starts with demolition

Mini Clubman Estate 1100
ER Classics Desktop 2022

"Never has so little done so much for so many." The text of the British folder leaves no room for misunderstanding. There is no other car of a comparable class that combines so many attractive features. Which also added that there were more Minis on the road than any other car in the UK. We discovered this Mini Clubman Estate.

But Europe was also discovered that the Mini in various versions was ideally suited for countless companies. They were all reliable and versatile. This Mini Clubman Estate, the 48-RA-58 is exhausted. The bottom is now crisp and, according to the owner, cannot be saved anymore, so that only one alternative remains and that is the range as a spare parts warehouse. 

Protecting and preserving our classics is important to us as enthusiasts and nostalgia is also a reason to have an old vehicle. In our hearts, we want every special classic car to not give up, but cling to a second life. But the contents of the piggy bank will no longer save this mini Clubman Estate. And we accept his ultimate fate. Nevertheless, as enthusiasts we remain enthusiastic for everything that drives, rolls and moves. Especially if they are cars from the past.

  1. British Heritage sells new bodywork.
    Not cheap, but a classic Mini can be saved.
    Maybe an option?

    My first car was a matte black rolled Clubman, where the 1100 was replaced by the 1000cc A engine.
    The license plate still exists, or the car still exists?
