This lovely little Mini is in fantastic order and is ready for everyday use. The car has had just 2 LADY OWNERS from new, and has covered 48,000 miles. There is a fully stamped-up service book to confirm this. The first owner, a Miss Freda Kirby, owned the car up until 2012.
The car has covered around 1500 miles per year for the last few years, and has recently been subject to a full restoration. This included:
· New front wings and front panel
· New A Panels
· New boot floor
· New door steps
· New rear valence
· Professional respray
What’s lovely about this car is that it looks exactly the same as it did when it left the factory – no horrible alloys or tacky add-ons. The car still retains its original hubcaps and Rover radio.
The restoration obviously included a great deal of work, and you can see this in the quality of the paint finish and the underside. The car has been painted professionally and looks great. All of the seams are perfect and there’s no bubbling that I can see anywhere on the exterior. It’s not just had a quick blowover paint-job like the majority of Minis.
The car starts and runs very healthily and drives very nicely indeed. It’s still got its original 1275cc fuel injected engine and this fires up straight away and ticks over very smoothly. It's MOT'd until November 10th 2015, and I have no doubts that the car would get through another MOT without any problems. It appears to be very structurally sound, and all of the electrics etc work.
The interior is exceptionally clean and tidy, with original ‘Equinox’ seats and original dashboard and carpets. Again, it’s nice to see one that hasn’t had all the chrome ‘bling’ stuck on, for once.
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!
