A nice example of the final version of this model, notably given twin point injection and a front mounted radiator. The full width dashboard replaced the original shelf and also had an internal bonnet release fitted.
1275cc upgraded with a Stage 1 tuning kit, giving 74 BHP.
Kit included upgraded spark plug leads, K&N Airfilter and stainless steel sports exhaust.

Four Front mounted Spot Lights.

This car has been a reliable motor and used on a daily basis and since, recently carrying out the listed improvements, it is in sound condition mechanically, with good body structure.
Paintwork is, generally, in very good condition.
There are still areas that need some attention, which I have attempted to show in the photos.
After having the sills replaced in December, they require paintwork (black areas behind doors). There are also some surface rust zones, with the bottom of the passenger door being the worst area.
The front bumper has endured a couple of dents and the dash panel area around the dials is cracking.
Engine has a small oil leak as per usual on Minis.
Boot floor and wheel arch have a repair which is painted in primer.
Even with the observations of some required work, this structurally and mechanically sound Rover Mini Cooper is ready for action. This ‘head-turner’ would be a bargain for either a Mini enthusiast or anyone looking for a great runabout.
