This beautiful low mileage late Mini has covered just 36,800 miles from new, has been subject of a superb cosmetic restoration and has had just two owners from new, the most recent owning the car for 18 years having purchased the Mini in 2001. The Mini was first registered on the 8th March 1999 and was supplied new by Startins of Worcester and with its first owner, the supplying dealer serviced the Mini at 1005, 5856 and 9808 miles in 2000. The Mini moved up to Yorkshire in 2001 and in its early years of new ownership was in regular use with servicing recorded in the book at 19543 in 2001 and 24228 miles in 2002. Over the next 5 years the owner averaged 1000 miles per year and in 2007 it was serviced at 30815 miles. Since 2007, a further 6000 miles have been covered and a huge level of expenditure has gone into the car.
Our Mini has a fantastic spec with exterior enhanced by Sports Pack wheel arches, bumper over-riders, deep dish Minilight style wheels with Yokohama tyres and chrome wing mirrors. The interior is beautifully finished and fitted with a wood rim steering wheel, wooden gear knob, chrome gauge trims, retro style radio and the boot features a colour matched fuel tank and spare wheel cover. The engine has a stage one kit, silicone hoses, uprated HT leads, alloy rocker cover, ‘an Ultimate' engine steady is in place, as are bonnet gas struts. The Mini also boasts a stainless steel exhaust box, Hi-Lo height adjusters, coil conversion, Gaz dampers, adjustable tie bars, aluminium four pot calipers, grooved vented brake discs, braided front brake hoses and Superfin rear aluminium brake drums. A detailed history file accompanies the car with invoices for many new parts, spare keys and handbooks etc.
There is no doubt this car is exceptional in every respect. Over 19 years the last owner has cherished this car, loved every moment of ownership and has spent an absolute fortune tastefully modifying and upgrading the car. This Mini is beautiful with outstanding paintwork, an exceptional restored bodyshell, chrome work is perfect, wheels perfect, the Red leather upholstery beautifully kept and the engine bay and boot compartment outstanding. On the road the car is far superior to a standard Mini with the benefits of the various upgrades. Handling is super impressive; engine performance has been enhanced and the car is an all-round top-class example that's presented in a condition ready to show and exhibit. The Mini has driven over to us on two occasions and has proven an ultra-reliable classic that can be used on a regular basis as well as draw huge attention on the show scene. Finding a low mileage, low ownership example in this condition would be very difficult, and with the impressive specification, it's a very sought-after car that should look good value considering the costs to place the car in this condition and spec.
