1989 Rover Mini 1000 City E Automatic - British Classic with Union Jack Custom Paint job on roof!
This is my wife's old little runabout which we took off the road when her new Fiat 500 came into the family. Shame really to see this baby go, but we need the space to park my new company car. What can I say about it - it's a 1989 Mini, a true British Classic with the flag painted on the roof. A 1000cc Automatic??? I didn't even know there is such a thing till we bought it. I have barely driven it myself, but from the few miles I have done in her I was impressed ... the word FUN comes to mind.
The bad bits: off the road since late 2010 (SORN'ed), so a bit of rust has bubbled up. Not horrendous, but it's there as evident from the pictures. It has not been driven since, but when this little gem purred down the road in 2010 it was working perfectly. The MOT we had done in 2010 was at 63071 miles, the mileage now is 63691 miles, so this car has done a grand total of 580 miles since the last MOT in 2010. My educated guess is therefore that nothing usage-related should have worn out since then, i.e. everything on this car should be road legal. Oops, that is not a bad bit, it's a really good bit. I would get it MOT'ed again, but then I'd have to insure it just to drive to a garage - not worth the expense, so this is better left to her next owner.
Anyway, here it is, those of you who appreciate these kinds of cars know what you're getting and you probably know more about Minis than I do - a big sorry to all you Mini enthusiasts, but I personally prefer my S-Class lol ... the Mini and Fiat 500 are OK for my wife, but she's very petite, my butt is HUGE. If there is something specific you would like to know (about the Mini, not my wife or my butt), please contact me through the Ask Seller facility and I shall endeavour to answer your queries to the best of my abilities.
