Barn find - one of the oldest Mini's found in a lock up for sale for £7000.<br />
<br />
One of the first Minis to ever come off the production line has been excavated from a garage where it languished for 40 years. <br />
<br />
The ramshackle old Austin hit the road in October 1959 - only two months after the first ever Mini left the factory. <br />
<br />
In 1974, after passing through the hands of two owners, the dinky red motor was holed away in a garage, where it remained until this year. <br />
<br />
Now its owner, who forgot all about his old car, has decided to cash in on the booming market for Minis and consigned it for sale with Bonhams auctioneer.
