Hi I am selling my modified Rover mini cooper in rare Morello Purple. very few were made in this metallic colour and is a real head turner. It has a 1340cc Morspeed modified engine. chrome wheels. grey leather interior. custom sound system plus many more mods. Full details of mini bellow. It's in great condition for its age see pictures. and it has 6 months MOT and Tax left.


A bit of History about the car


I've owned the mini since 2002. the mini has won a variety of concourse/show n shine events when I used to attend the various mini shows back in 2003 to 2005. All trophies included in sale + scrapbook with clippings from magazines where the mini has been photographed.  The mini also featured in a documentary about the mini called “The Mini Story” DVD and VHS with model Mini also included in sale. From 2005 to 2009 I relaxed from the hard-core concourse events and attended shows with my local mini club on the club stand circuit. My 1st daughter was born in 2009 and the mini scene took a back seat. the mini only came out on the nice days and spent its time in the garage. My intention was to start attending shows as she got older. but this hasn't happened and the arrival of my 2nd daughter has made me realise that this will probably never happen now so I am sadly selling my beloved mini. I have booked into the show n shine event at the British Mini Club Himley Hall event on the 11th of May. This will give you the chance if your going. to take a closer look at the mini. Alternatively you can contact me to arrange a viewing. Viewing is welcome before the end of the auction. And the auction final bid price is final! No haggling with the price after is acceptable. plus it's against eBay rules. The mini is advertised elsewhere and I reserve the right to end the auction early if the mini is sold outside of eBay.
