Another fine JDM Mini ready to bring a smile to your face. It has already received a ton of work so it could easily be your new daily driver! Clean AZ Title, 30000km on the clock, and priced very low for a car in it's condition. Don't miss out on another fine mini. This would be a wonderful car for any type of person.
This lovely City model is finished in a gloss Olive green that looks brilliant in the sun. A white roof compliments the dark colored body. A few nods to the earlier model minis include glass front markers, rounded side repeaters, wing mirrors, Mk 2 rear lamps, Mk II plate lamps, and retro badging. Just enough to set it apart without going overboard. Color matched flares tie everything in nicely, and provide just enough cover for the new Ultralite wheels with some older tires.
Inside we find the nicer "lightning bolt" patterned interior with matching carpet set. The dashboard is still the original ABS plastic style, which accommodates the A/C and Radio nicely. The steering wheel has been swapped with a Moto-Lita wooden wheel, as have the shift knob and much of the interior hardware to complete the retro look. Although there may be a couple rust spots in the outter sills, a quick peak under the carpet shows you that the inner sills and floor pans are in good shape with no rust. We have treated the rust in the sills with an incapsulator. The A/C is freshly recharged and works fantastic.
Under bonnet we find the standard 998, but a TON has been done. It has fresh fluids and filters. We have fitted a full stage 1 kit including alloy intake, AAU needle, K&N air filter, LCB Header, completely new RC40 full exhaust system, and all associated hardware. The carburetor was fully rebuilt. The engine was degreased and repainted its factory coloring in situ, and many gaskets were replaced. Our complete Mega-Cool cooling system is installed, including new JDM AC specific belts, so overheating is not a worry even in our hot summer temps! New ignition system fitted including coil, new mountings, and new hoses are also fitted. Undercar a bunch has been done as well. New ball joints, new wheel bearings all around, new poly lower arm bushes, new shocks, and new tie bar bushes to name a few of the items we took care of.
This is a daily ready mini that will bring you tons of fun and just increase in value. No need to worry about buying something that needs a ton of work either, because it already has a ton done to it!
