Hi there. welcome to my auction for my Rover Mini cooper 1. 3i

Its a lovely little car. Its finished in a glossy black/grey metallic and has old english white roof. mirrors. bonnet and pinstripes.

When we were looking for a Mini at the start of this year. after seeing a couple and then this particular one. we were very impressed with it's over-all condition. originality and extensive history (pictured) It has most of the old MOT's and alot of paperwork backing up mileage and work carried out. One service book is full. and a new unused Rover Mini Cooper service log was purchased and started from its last service. Car has both sets of keys. and both key fobs were serviced (reciept to proove) as buttons to set the alarm/immobiliser were tending not to operate /deactivate the alarm. So all good.

Engine and mechanics are first class. the car pulls strong and selects all gears with no crunches or grinds. The steering is tight and precise and the brakes pull the car to a stop with no fuss. Car does not use any oil. water or smoke. rattle. no loss of power. r leakages. - comes upto temperature and gauge sits dead in the middle. fan cuts in in traffic or stood for a while idling.

Subframes and undercarriage are in good condition. certainly no crispy bits and appear to be solid as do the floors. boot and battery box. (common areas on Minis. )

Body and paint are good. but it's 15 years old. please don't expect a 'trailer queen' or a minter. because she's not. The body has the odd car park dink and mark. but that's it. rust bubbles are evident under the headlights. (very minor) and on the bottom of both A panels. but again. it's holding up quite well seeing as its all original. we had the intention of ironing-out these issues over the months/years. but as it was used each day never got round to it. That will be the choice of the new owner to rectify this. i'd be 50/50 on these items. as its only original once and i think it adds character.

Interior is excellent. half leather seats with cream inserts and gold piping. black carpets. walnut dash and gearknob. steering has minimal wear to leather. Its has a CD MP3 player flip-front remote control unit installed in favour of the Rover radio cassette that it had before. i have retained this should the new owner wish to keep it.   Also. Car has cream dashboard dials. gold seatbelts and a red boot carpet kit. Both rear windows open out. hinges in good condition. All instruments work as they should. however the fuel gauge is lazy. gives a true reading for about 5 minutes of the start of every journey. then slowly falls to empty!

New parts since we have had her are:

-New genuine chrome bumpers. front and rear. front has over-riders.

-A stainless steel sporty Janspeed performance exhaust.

-Revolution alloys and tyre package done around 1500 miles since fitting.

-Headlamp guards (expensive for what they are!)

-Posh boot liner kit.

-New wipers

The MOT expires mid July. and the Tax is included in the sale which runs out February next year. so she's ready to go. - I think that's everything to the best of my knowledge. if there is anything you'd like to know. please do not hesitate to contact me. You are most welcome to come and view before bidding and this is recomended and welcomed but no silly offers boy racers. dreamers or schemers. nbsp;you have been warned! Usual ebay rules apply.

Many thanks for looking and reading. Good luck and best wishes.
