1998 R Reg  - ROVER MINI COOPER - 1275 Mpi

RARE PEARLESCENT PURPLE WITH FULL SPORTSPACK OPTION.

JUST 59. 00 MILES

MOT APRIL 2014 with no advisories .

Resplendant (I think) in rare (took months to source) pearlescent purple with white roof. chrome grill. bonnet stripes. laurel motifs. badges and Rover Minilite 13” Sportspack alloys. Dating from 1998. so the last configuration of the “proper” Mini with the 1. 3 multi-point fuel injection. full-width walnut dash. more comfortable wider Metro seats. safety features of airbag. seat belt pretensioners. door bars. etc. Unmodified. apart from Pioneer ICE. upgraded alloy door furniture and a Stainless steel sports exhaust. Very few owners. the car comes with lots of previous main dealer service stamps in the book. all invoices including original purchase order. some past MOTS from 2007 and my ownership receipts for brake pads replacement. water pump. window channel kits. rust treatment. recent battery and new roof aerial in my ownership to date. The clean engine is turn-key reliable with. surprisingly for a Mini. no oil or coolant leaks to contend with! Before you ask. there are no issues engaging the gears. (second gear particularly can be a weakness on these later models). even the Rover alarm/immobilser works – now this is a real rarity in my experience! There is no sunroof to worry about leaks either!

I think it looks and drives as if it has always been well cared for. The bodywork is very tidy for a Mini. with only a few minor blemishes on the door skin bottoms. These are very minor and will not need attention for a good while yet. It appeared on my own purchase inspection 3 years ago now that the full front panel. A-posts. both wings and scuttle had all been recently replaced. nbsp;plus O/S side sill repaired. as you would expect on a 15 year old Mini. but there is no invoice for this. However. subsequent thorough waxoyl treatment after purchase confirmed these new panels to be fitted. complete with their stickers still on the insides. The interior is clean and in good order with no rips or damage. surviving without the typical speaker and extra gauge holes. etc. Instead. the original layout remains. together with all the correct Rover handbooks and a complete service wallet in the glove-box!

I bought it for its wonderful pearlescent colour. excellent condition and originality. plus the service record from new. showing a very long association with Caffyns Rover dealership in Brighton. which is known to my family for over 30 years. Mileage is as below:

Currently MOT'd until April 2014 with no advisories. I have only driven 650 miles in dry weather to local shows in 3 years! It starts first time and runs very sweetly. with the added attraction of lower tax and very cheap insurance feasible with classic car underwriters. if required. It deserves to go to another real Mini enthusiast.


IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ:

1: This vehicle is not a "concours" example. "truly excellent" or "mint". condition. I find such superlatives are often used but usually disappoint! It is a roadworthy and really presentable vehicle that drives very nicely. and one that comes with an advisory free MoT. It currently runs without any problems. The asking price gives a good indication to its present condition. the fact it has a confidence boosting service history and has had a pampered limited mileage existence.

2: This car is listed to sell without hassle. If you do not really want this car. or think you may change your mind. please do not make an offer or begin those potential time consuming enquiries by e-mail when you happen to just like Minis. but don't have the funds.  

3: Interested parties are welcome to come and view the car. but test drives will not be available unless proof of suitable comprehensive insurance can be produced. However. I am more than willing to take buyers out in the car for a full demonstration.

4: Offers: Cash offers are welcome using the "Best offer" facility at the top of the listing - no part exchange required.

5: Strictly no canvassers or enquiries to export - UK BUYERS ONLY. International bids will be cancelled.

6. The vehicle is “sold as seen”. with no warranty given or implied.

Please contact me via e-bay if you have any questions or want specific pictures and I will do my best to answer. This vehicle is 16 years old and obviously has age and mileage related wear etc. please be realistic. I have endeavored to list it as accurately as possible and believe it is a really good example when compared to others of similar age and mileage.

PAYMENT AND COLLECTION: • £25 Non-refundable "deposit of intent" by Paypal OR Bank Transfer within 24 hours to secure sale • Remaining balance by bank transfer (NO PAYPAL on this item) or cash on collection • Collection within 7 days of auction end date and only after funds have fully cleared; Delivery is feasible if preferred. within 150 miles of my location. for £1. 00/mile (both directions) to simply cover my fuel and time.
