Vehicle Story

This 1972 Innocenti Mini Matic B 1000 is an Italian-built three-door hatchback that was imported to the United States and features a retractable sunroof. Powered by a water-cooled 998cc inline-four mated to a 4-speed manual transaxle, this Innocenti was subject to a repaint in blue and a refurbishment of the blue cloth interior. Offering amenities including power windows, a CD player, and woodgrain accent trim, this Innocenti is now offered with a clean Connecticut title in the owner’s name.

The Italian-built Innocenti was a three-door hatchback version of British Leyland’s Mini, manufactured between the mid-1960s and early 1970s. This example from 1972 was imported to the United States and repainted blue as part of a restoration in 2019, featuring a black vinyl manually-retractable sunroof. Exterior treatment includes side marker lamps, black-finished bumpers, and headlight rings, and bright trim for the driver sideview mirror, wheel arch moldings, and other hardware. The rear hatch has a lockable access handle, and a single exhaust outlet is located at the driver's rear.

Multi-spoke 10” wheels are wrapped in tires with good tread life remaining as shown in the photo carousel.

The interior offers replacement blue cloth seat covers for the front buckets and rear bench, with matching materials for the door panels, dash, and carpeting. Gloss woodgrain trim is featured throughout the cabin, including the steering wheel, dash, face, and upper portions of the door panels. Options include power windows, a modern AM/FM/CD head unit, and the retractable sunroof with a sliding sunshade.

Instrumentation is provided by Italian-spec gauges in metric readings, including a 160-km/h speedometer as well as gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, voltage, and oil pressure. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads approximately 73k kilometers (~45,600 miles), although true mileage is unknown.

The water-cooled, transverse-mounted 998cc inline-four was rated at 46 horsepower and received a rebuilt carburetor, a new clutch and pressure plate. Power is fed to the front wheels via a 4-speed manual transaxle.

A British classic that has the hallmark of Italy and that places great value on it.
