Fresh off the boat from Japan, This 1991 Rover Mini Cooper is very clean, with some tasteful customization. Low mileage and rust free, this mini is ready to take on the world. Clean AZ Title.
This Mini is finished in Jet Black with a White top. It has had MkII Morris badges fitted, with MkII Taillights, so it has that retro look. Wing mirrors have been fitted, along with Morris door mirror blanking plates. The standard plastic lenses were replaced with Glass on the front markers. Finishing the sides we find painted fiberglass arches and chrome metal stripping. This of course all riding on black and chrome 12" Revolutions, mounted with some older Dunlop "Le Mans" Bb490 Tyres.
On the inside we find a mashup of retro and new items. The seats are of the standard bucket type, with a black carpet set. The door panels are of black vinyl with red cooper piping, and a very nice Morris Woodgrain steering wheel has been fitted. The dash has seen a complete conversion to an early MkI-MkIII style, with woodgrain overlay. Smiths Centre Guages have been fitted, as well as a Rev Counter mounted on the drivers glovebox. The best part to all of this is the Air Conditioning, which has controls mounted in the Passenger's glovebox, and is tapped in to the dash vents, normally reserved for just a fresh air vent. This allows for ice cold Air, that blows very hard.
Under the bonnet we find the bigger 1275 Engine, fitted with an aftermarket highflow air filter. Exhaust has been changed to a high performance system, which gives this mini a reserved, but beefy note. The oil has just recently been serviced, and the Air Conditioning has just been serviced, as well as converted to R134a. This Mini has power front disc brakes too, so no more worrying about brake performance.
Priced to sell, this little mini would make a great Daily, Show car, or just a fun toy. This is a great base for a restoration as well, being rust free and well equipped. Hurry- It won't last long.
