Description for Mini Classic Mini 1978

. *** I suggest getting a quote on a classic car loan from a company such as JJ Best before you bid. ***
You are bidding on an incredibly nice, nrestored (but well maintained) Mini Cooper!
The car was originally manufactured for the Japanese market optioned as Sunroof Delete, ini Lite Wheels, ir Conditioning, nd Right Hand Drive. Cosmetically the car remains very tidy inside and out, howing all the signs of consistent care and enthusiastic ownership. Converted mileage is approximately 81,000 miles (title shows what actual odometer reads in km). Mechanically, his spirited little Mini has a huge fun factor as the unassisted steering is direct and full of feedback, hile the wheel-at-each corner stance and firm suspension gives it outstanding agility and handling; the familiar whine of the 4 speed gearbox and tuneful exhaust enhances the overall motoring experience. Documentation includes: Service records, orum correspondence, and written notes and settings, nd all the resources one would need to keep in line with its responsible ownership.
The Mini Mk Vll's are the most advanced version and the true Mini's of the UK, hey encompass the same lovable character that made the original 1961 original such a smashing hit. For this reason, hese cars are collectible and are considered investments. In this case, ize truly does not matter. This Rover Mini is titled as a 1978, pgraded to 1996 spec, ncluding single port fuel injection!
New tires and wheel bearings recently installed. A real blast to drive. The color is a greenish tinted blue (shows better in the outdoor photos than the indoor ones).
The car currently has a loan against it which needs to be paid off before the title is released.
I use this car as a daily driver, t is wonderfully reliable. The looks of a classic with modern conveniences!
Note: Bonnet stripes are new.
Fun facts:
This car WILL turn heads! I've driven a lot of wild cars before, ut nothing has received the attention this does!
It is a Mini. They ride rough. They handle like crazy. They're bare bones, itty gritty, nd stupid fun to drive. Avoid potholes
The air conditioning is wonderful.
The car was manufactured in England for the Japanese market. It retains its original Japanese hood ornament. Speedo is in km/h. I installed a 12v power socket with a mobile phone USB charger and phone mount, hich will come with the car, long with an iPhone 6 charger and aux cable for the stereo so you can listen to MP3s. It also has a CD player.
It spent most of its life in Japan, ence its rust free nature. It was brought back to the UK for export to the US in the mid 2000's, am its third owner in the US (other than a dealership). Sold as is.
