The Austin Maestro was produced from 1982 to 1987 by British Leyland, and from 1988 until 1994 by Rover Group. The car was produced at Morris' former Oxford plant, also known as Cowley. Today, the redeveloped factory produces the BMW Mini.
Supplied new by Henlys’ of Andover on 3rd August 1986 and having only four owners since this plucky Austin Maestro camper has been garage-stored and is described by our vendor as extremely solid and remaining exceptionally original throughout. The bodywork is very good indeed with superb panel gaps, hinges and door shuts. It is notably Waxoyl protected and the engine bay clean and sharp with solid inner wings. The measure of a good camper is the interior, a department where this little countryman excels. The cushions are trimmed in the original material and have been re-padded. The watertight roof ensures that the car is damp-free and dry and, with built-in gas stove, this portable studio apartment is ready for camping fun or for display at car shows and events. The history file contains its Austin Rover owner’s wallet complete with owner’s manuals and, most importantly, a stamped service history booklet. Recently serviced and supplied with a new MOT certificate, it is not often that you see a Countryman Maestro in this order. It is original and, according to our vendor, drives really well. It must be seen and inspected to appreciate the condition of this little, self-contained living space on wheels
