HISTORY FILE
The 1980 Maxi 2 was the final incarnation of the model before production ceased in 1981, 12 years after the Alec Issigonis design was first introduced in 1969. This very late 1981 model was supplied new by British Leyland dealer, Kennings Ltd of Colchester, on the 1st September 1981 and has covered just 9,989 miles from new! The first keeper Mr Norman Roe of Colchester, a registered Disabled driver, owned the car until 1998 covering just 5,568 miles in that time. Ownership then transferred to good friend and neighbour, Carol Thompson who put the car on the road after an extended period of storage before herself placing the car in storage with continual SORN acknowledgements from 2004 until 2012. A letter from the Secretary of the Austin Maxi Owners Club to Mr Thompson confirms this car as being only a handful of automatic Maxi 2 being produced. The vehicle was then sold to an Austin enthusiast who sold the car in February 2020. An Agreed Valuation of £6,500 has been issued.

The original Austin service booklet contains eight stamped entries with the most recent being a major service including the Hydragas system at a cost of £868.90 in June 2020 and at 8,772 miles. Absolutely all handbooks, guides and dealership literature are present along with two original sets of keys with Kennings fobs and a 1980 Maxi 2 sales brochure. Even the Kennings Leycare service card still hangs from the rear-view mirror! A separate and neatly organised file of invoices illustrates expenses. An unrepeatable opportunity to buy surely one of the best examples of British Leyland motoring history.
