1998 Mini Cooper MPI
Sale price: £5,750.00 make an offer
Technical specifications, photos and description:
I decided to buy this mini around two years ago as I had had several minis in the late 60's and 70's and fancied owning one now that I had retired. Unfortunately a very short time after the purchase I developed a medical condition which meant it was very difficult to get in the mini let alone drive it. so reluctantly it needs to be passed on to another mini lover. The first year I managed around 600 miles but only 100 miles between last years and this year's mot and I've not used it since the mot on 29th April. I had the mini valued by the British mini club in August 2015 at £8000 and I have agreed insurance for £6000.
The previous owner had completed quite a few modifications as the following list shows.
Full respray in 2013 in British Racing Green with a black roof. black bumpers. headlight surrounds. black boot hinges. few other small bits sprayed black.
Fletcher stainless steel exhaust system with 75mm twin centre exit DTM
13 x 7 Deep dish reconditioned wheels
Yokohama A539 Tyres
Group 5 arches
Gmax sports ride adjustable suspension kit including shock absorbers. adjustable rear bars. adjustable rear camber and tracking kit. polybush kit. uprated tie rods. extended track rod ends.
I have spent over £1000 on the inside with the front and rear seats being re-upholstered in a grey/charcoal fabric as have the door panels and rear side panels. There is also a new black carpet. black leather rear wheel arch covers. black leather gear knob. new black car mats and a new Sony CDX-G2000UI radio. The doors have also been fitted with DSN classic billet range door furniture. To me basically the inside looks just about perfect. plus I'm a non smoker so it even smells pleasant.
I also have two new black front seat belts. two front fog lights. two spotlights and two torpedo door mirrors none of which have been fitted. plus a voyager fitted car cover. all will be supplied with the car.
Apart from a few tiny marks. the bodywork is in excellent condition but there is a slight mark on one of the wheel rims due to lousy parking.
Ever since I have owned the mini it has been permanently garaged. The battery has been charged every week and for the last year it has only been out of the garage for the mot and to be cleaned once a month. since I've owned the mini it has never been out in rain so the underneath is about as dry as the Sahara. I have also just purchased a new immobilizer key fob as the battery run out in the old one.
Basically the car needs to be viewed to see the condition so hopefully someone will be interested
Also I am open to reasonable offers so please give me a call on 07341 824576. Thanks for looking.
