Technical specifications, photos and description:
Here for sale is my very special Mini Austin - AKA Oliver "The Mini that was brought back to life"
Oliver's history is pretty special. years ago when he was on the road he was pretty famous and was in the Cath Kidston display in Oxford Circus for a while. and we still have the original tag. However after that. he was locked away in a garage for over 10yrs and needless to say he needed some TLC. He was purchased and lovingly restored with the intent of keeping him original as possible and has been mine for the past 6 months'. In terms of his restoration he has had a recent full service. all fluids changed. full set of new tyres etc. I am his 3rd owner in his whole 41yrs and 11 months and he has only got 44. 00 miles on the clock! He's MOT runs out 23 March 2017 and the Road Tax expires 1 April 2017. He is tax exempt (so no payment needed) and is super cheap to insure - I currently pay £16 a month.
One of the reasons that makes Oliver so special is he's originality and uniqueness. Firstly. he is an extremely rare colour of tundra green and his interior is limeflower green. He has a rip on the passenger seat however I haven't replaced this as his interior is completely original. Since having Oliver he has been to many shows and he is part of the SELKent Mini Club and was recently in Classic Car Weekly (the last photo). He was spotted at Bromley Pageant by the article's journalist and was desperate to get some info and a photo due to Oliver being such a rare find! As you can imagine for a car of nearly 42 years old he has a few imperfections and flaws and the right person should appreciate and love these little flaws. but as you can see from the photos he is in great condition.
So it's safe to say that he is a super special little car which is why I am so upset to be writing this ad right now. Unfortunately I have just started university as a mature student and as anyone can imagine. university studies aren't cheap - So I would love to see Oliver go to a good. loving home. Someone that will look after him. appreciate he's rarity and uniqueness and make sure this special little car stays out on the road.
I am looking for £5. 50 or near offer for little Oliver. I accept either a BACS payment or cash on collection.
Thank you for taking the time to look and hopefully someone can give this special little car a good home.
