An incredibly pretty little car, featured in the November 2007 issue of Mini World magazine (after its restoration/conservation), There has been an emphasis placed on leaving as much of the car untouched as possible, just carrying out an minimum intervention restoration. Practical, mild performance updates have been made in the form of replacement cylinder head, inlet manifold and carburettor (original parts also included) and the gearbox ratios have been updated with Mini Metro parts, all of which makes for a peppy performance from the little 850cc engine!
There are, from use, a few inconsequential marks to the 10+ year old paint and some nice signs of patina to the upholstery & trim, all of which add to the delightful persona of this Mini.
Will be supplied with: 2 sets of keys; V5; 12 months MOT; HPI certificate, original sales brochure, three period service books, and a large service history file.
