Selling on behalf of my father-in-law who has owned this car for the last 8 years. In that time it has had thousands spent on it to bring it to the exceptional standard the car is currently at.
Bodywork/Paintwork wise the car is excellent having had new heritage front wings and front panel followed by a full professional respray. The exterior also boasts a host of new brightwork and period items to give this Mini the MK1 look including bumpers. over-riders. grille & moustache. wipers & washer jets. mirrors. fuel cap. leather bonnet strap. rear number plate lamp. boot lid hinges. rear lamp. and boot lid handle.
Mechanically the car is first class having just had a full engine and gearbox overhaul including the following components
Full Mini Sport Stage 3 90 bhp Kit which consists of the followingPolished and ported stage 3 cylinder head with 35 mm bigger inlet valves1:5:1 ratio billet roller tip rockersUprated cylinder head gasket kitFSE power boost valvePolished/Ported and upgraded throttle bodyNGK upgraded spark plugsManiflow LCB manifold and link pipe to a full stainless steel 3" Playmini exhaust systemCAT bypass pipe (original CAT included for MOT purposes)K&N air filterWhile this work was being carried out the final drive ratio was changed to 3:1:1 so the increase in power could be put to good use. The clutch and gearbox were also overhauled.
To compliment further the above work the following was also carried out.
Upgraded x drilled and grooved EBC brake discs with EBC sure-stop brake padsBraided Aeroquip brake hosesAdjustable Spax Red shock absorber kitAdjustable front tie bar kitUpgraded negative camber front lower armsRear negative camber kitAdjuster ride front and rear kitFull car poly bush kitQuick-shift gear change kitX4 Yokohama A539 tyres. All of the above work has been carried out by a Mini specialist with invoices to prove. The car has only covered a few hundred miles since this work has been carried out. As you would expect having had this work carried out the car pulls very strongly with a crisp and precise gear change with precise and agile handling.
It has just flown through the MOT with no advisories.
It has a good quality pioneer CD/MP3 player with Alpine amplifier installed.
This is an outstanding example which is an absolute scream to drive and gets a lot of attention wherever it goes. The pictures really do not do the car justice. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
Viewings welcome and very much encouraged by serious buyers only please. I don't have time for messer's but all the time in the world for genuine potential purchasers.
