Rover Mini Cooper 1998 Twin point Injection For Sale
Welcome to my listing. I bought this car last year with an MOT and running pretty well with a puff of blue smoke on start up from valve stems and a few bubbles of rust. The result is after a totally over the top strip down and rebuild of the car with no expense spared.  
the First owner had the car from new to 1 year old. the last owner had it for 14 years and i have owned it 1 year. I took the car off the road in September last year. This car has had a full strip down and a nut and bolt restoration.
I have replaced the following:
Exterior - 
Dash RailFull Scuttle Panel2 WingsFront Panel2 x A PanelsBoth Inner and Outer SillsBonnetRear Subframe Mounting Point
All using genuine heritage panels and receipts to prove this.
A full respray has been completed in March 2014 with receipts to prove this. The whole car was stripped back to a shell and undersealed then painted inside and out. the bitumen interior flooring was removed and replaced by FatMat.
Engine & Gearbox - 
The engine has had a new OEM new old stock cylinder head a brand new original oem manifold. ew OEM down pipe New Catalytic ConvertorManiflow twin box injection exhaustNew water pump. /span> New oil Pump. nbsp;New ClutchNew silicone hosesNew Main Engine Relay
A refurbished gearbox with 3. 1 diff. all gaskets renewed and motion bearings replaced
Running Gear:
new GAZ shocks. nbsp;new rubber cones all round 7. 5 inch disc brake conversion with Green Spec PadsNew Poly Bushes - All bushes replaced on front subframeFull Hi lo Adjustable Suspension 
Exterior:
Full Respray including bare metal on the roof5 x 10" mini alloy wheels with Yoko A008 Tyres - never been on the roadcolour coded standard Rover ArchesNew Coach Trim and Badges - GenuineNew SRS Genuine WindscreenNew LightsNew Genuine Spec Late BumpersNew Wipers. New Washer JetsNew Grille and SurroundNew Seals for front and rear window
Interior
Various rare cooper bits including Cooper gear knobCooper window winders and alloy door furnitureNew Newton Commercial Carpet in BlackNew Newton Commercial Headlining - could have been put in better!Original interior in generally very good condition
General bits:
Various stainless show bits in the engine bayMost nuts and bolts have been replaced with stainless steel nuts and boltsCooper Garages Rear StickerCooper Garages Tax Disc HolderCooper DusterAll Book packs2 sets of keysOriginal 12" Wheels will also be supplied and come with good tyres and in good condition
Overall the car has done 42300 miles and as you will expect from the above is in excellent condition. This is not concours but it is very good indeed and a real car to be pleased with. Parts have been sourced from Heritage or as close to original as possible. The bumpers for example were £120 and i waited over a month for them to be built
One point to note. the steering wheels will need refurbishing and the headlining has not been put in the best - but not the end of the world. There is also an oil leak to the timing pulley - it will simply need the timing cover loosening and the pulley torquing up then the timing cover retightening - this is an easy job and due to the new pulley oil seal not seating 100%
Car is currently SORN and will come with a full MOT.
Make no mistake i have not spared any expense on this car.  It is a really good car and if i did not need to sell for personal circumstances i wouldn't. This is my car put together with love and affection and given the attention anyone would expect throughout the build if you had invested months of effort.
A Full and Comprehensive Photo Rebuild will be provided to the new owner.
You are not bidding to view. you are bidding to buy !! Please do not waste my time. i'm not in a rush to sell so no silly offers or time wasting. I am however open to offers that are justified and make sense
I WILL NOT SHIP OUT OF THE UK & buyer collects CASH.
If you have any questions please feel free to email.
INSURANCE. HPI and all Checks Clear.
