2000 Rover Mini Cooper
£££ SOLD £££
Well, where do I start? This lovely little 2000 Mini Cooper Sportspack has an MOT until 22nd May 2015.
Being a Sportspack, this comes fully loaded with all of the extra factory options, namely side wheel and arches, half leather seats, original Rover CD player and much much more! It’s fantastic fun to drive, but is slightly more refined than the earlier cars, and is more suited to dual carriageway cruising, etc
Bodily, the car is pretty tidy for an example of this age. Yes, there are a few areas of bubbling and blistering but as you can see from the pics, this is perfectly usable as it is, and you can just improve as and when you need it. It's certainly not rotten! You should be able to see all of the grot-spots in the high res pictures below and at the link to the other photos. The roof gutters are very good, as are the majority of the seams. Don’t come expecting a show car – it’s just nice and usable and can be improved as you go along.
The tyres all have good tread (Continentals all round), and the car stops in a straight line, and pulls well. The engine sounds very sweet indeed, and the gearbox selects all gears nicely, without any crunches, like a lot of Minis seem to! The interior is all nice and tidy – the half leather seats are in super condition, as are the carpets. This backs up the 67,000 milometer reading.
This is a bargain price for a fantastic car which attracts a great deal of attention wherever it goes. Obviously it’s not a concourse show car but it’s generally very good indeed, but is ready to use and enjoy. You must remember that running a Mini isn’t like a modern Japanese Honda or equivalent – there will be bits and bobs to do from time to time, but generally you’ll be able to fix it yourself, because they’re so simple!
