1990 Austin Mini - 998cc, Navy
This lovely little 998cc Mini is in fantastic order and is ready for everyday use.The car has had 3 previous from new, and has covered 41,000 miles. I have MOTs dating back to the early 1990s, along with a few bills and receipts for bits and bobs. It would be ideal for someone looking to get into the Mini scene, or for a young driver as a first 'classic'. It's not the usual tarted-up piece of rubbish, like so many Minis on the market.
What’s lovely about this car is that it looks exactly the same as it did when it left the factory, apart from the GB Minilite wheels. A CD player is also fitted.
Bodily the car is excellent, with a fantastic paint finish. All the seams etc are in fantastic order with no rust. You won’t find a better one for the price! The underside appears to be very solid, with the floors, sills, subframes etc in good shape.
The car starts and runs very healthily and drives very nicely indeed. The gearbox is slick, with no worn synchromesh etc, and the brakes work very well indeed. It's MOT'd until January 2017, and I have no doubts that the car would get through another MOT without any problems. All of the electrics work just as they should. Has just had a new battery fitted, too.
The interior is original, and very clean and tidy, with original seats, original dashboard and carpets. Again, it’s nice to see one that hasn’t had all the chrome ‘bling’ stuck on, for once. The driver’s seat does have a very small tear on one edge, but it’s hard to notice and certainly won’t get any worse.
All in all, this is a VERY clean and tidy car, and is priced very reasonably for a quick sale. If you come and have a look, you certainly won’t be disappointed. It’s as nice as it looks in the pictures. It would also be ideal for a new driver, as it’s a 998cc – insurance will be much more affordable!
