Reader Ad: 1964 Austin Mini Countryman

Reader Dale D and the good people over at recently found this Austin Mini Countryman parked in Southern California. It’s clearly an older restoration, but after going over the mechanicals, polishing up the paint and refinishing the wood it’s a sweet little driver! These are fun little cars to zip around in and would definitely make for a fun surf wagon. It’s currently in Huntington Beach, California and is showing just 30k miles on the odometer. If you’d love to give this Mini a good home, be sure to check out their site via the link below.

What Makes It Special? Clean woody RHD with rope pull door latches. Cool little surf wagon from Surf City California.

Body Condition: In good shape. Prior rust repairs made, floors replaced. Wood just refinished

Mechanical Condition: She runs out very nice. Well maintained engine. We’ve gone through the brakes and added new tires. Cool starter switch is floor mounted.

Seller’s Listing: Here on

The Countryman really is a cool little car. For the most part, they are just like the standard Mini, just slightly longer and with wood trim. These are easy cars to work on and there are a plethora of performance upgrade options if that’s what you’re into or you can just leave it alone and enjoy all of its quirky Mininess! Our thanks to Dale for listing this Mini with us and for sending us some additional photos of it, which you can view here.

    Anybody know why the British seem to always put their side mirrors way down the fender instead of up close to the driver, so you can actually see what’s coming up beside you?

      I guess it is so you have an easier time refocusing from road to mirror and back. Unfortunately it makes it difficult to see much detail in the mirror though.

    My mum had one of these in England, bought new in 1965.
    After she graduated to a Triumph Herald convertible, I used her Morris mini traveller and travelled far and wide in it throughout the UK. Great memories.
