BLUEY Rover Mini and Trailer, Unique Something diiferent for the Summer......... for sale
This car is a show winner and has been featured in MINI Magazine. It was built to raise funds for North Devon Children's Hospice and was very successful.
Here is one BARGAIN not to be missed
WANT IT. HAVE IT!!!!This Time next week it could be yours
Initially purchased as a bog standard Rover Mini 1000 automatic in green in 2004. He was bought purely for the immaculate shell (as a start point for a project) more than the spec. the car was stripped completely and set about building the MINI . The conversion kit was purchased from 'Keiths Convertibles' which those of you in the know will realize is the best convertible kit around. Keiths (sadly. no longer with us) kits included not only the roof but all the strengthening plates etc required to compensate for the loss of the roof.
This was duly fitted and then the shell was completely resprayed in 'Nevis Bleu' with a coarse metal flake. This was a top notch paint-job starting from bare metal (not a dust over) with three coats of primer. three base coats and eight coats of metal flake lacquer.
. A 1275 engine and manual gearbox was fitted both of which function perfectly. The brakes were upgraded and new alloys fitted. The exhaust was changed for an R1 stainless tailpipe (lovely sound). Chrome trim was added on top of this as well as a rewire and interior refurbish.
The hood fits perfectly with every popper in excellent condition and the original tonneau cover still with the vehicle. It takes less than a minute to remove and replace. The hood has no rips or tears and is in superb condition.
The car drives superbly with brakes. engine and gearbox working perfectly (Bluey did a charity run from Lands End to John O Groats twice with no hesitation).
Please note though that this is not the car to drive if you are shy as it turns heads everywhere it goes and people will want to come and talk to you about it.
The trailer was built from a donor mini with severe corrosion of the front end (rear end was perfect). This was cut in the middle and sealed using the roof from BLUEY. Same paint job as BLUEY and two extra alloys were purchased to match the car. Uniquely. a second tow hitch was added to the rear of the trailer for displays and carnivals This would be easy to remove if you no longer require it.
Loads of space in the trailer. the original intention was to use the fuel filler to feed into a water tank and use for camping. however. never got around to this. but have left the fuel filler in place. There is loads of space in the trailer and would be absolutely ideal if you are looking to take your family camping in cool style.
A high end sound system was fitted with a Pioneer head unit. 6 CD disc changer (fitted under drivers seat). two 1KW amplifiers. 2 1KW power caps. enormous VIBE subwoofer and 16 speakers. The sound system alone cost a fortune and won a multitude of awards (can supply earplugs on request ;-).
This is a truly one off car & turns heads everywhere you go. to the point people take picture passing you on motorway!!!If you want to stand out this is the car for YOU
WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS BLUEY THE MINI AND TRAILER
WHICH HAS UNDERGONE SOME VERY EXTREME. /span>
