Here for sale is my 1998 Rover Mini Cooper MPI, the mini has 12 months MOT with a new rear sub frame. The mini has been garaged in the York area for the last few years and used as a hobby car.

The mini attended London to Brighten mini run last year without any faults on the very long day out. The mini has generally really good bodywork with only a few bits of rust starting on the A panels and the usual places but only blisters etc, no rot but the A panels are the worst of it,  the scuttle etc is all good and solid, under the lights is good and solid with a bit of blistering but nothing major. The mini drives very well although when it's stone cold it tends to stall but once warmed up its fine, I am told it requires a map sensor fitting to make it 100%, the brakes, clutch, gearbox and steering is all good as well.

The interior is ok with some age related marks etc mainly to the drivers seat, the car is all solid but has had some work done to the sills in the past, but the work is to a good solid standard by my local garage. The work was mainly some welding for the MOT, The shell of the car is very good and requires nothing doing immediately. As said this mini drives extremely well and is ready for the summer months with nothing apart from a map sensor and tax to enjoy the car.

Please remember this is a 16 year old mini in original condition, so its not perfect, but it is very solid and very useable fun car with no known issues apart from the stalling when cold (but I'm told a map sensor will sort that out). I welcome viewings before the auction end, this is a no reserve sale as i really need the space in my garage.

I accept payment via cash, cheque, bank transfer, PayPal or bankers draft, any payment must be cleared before the car leaves. The car is located in a small village outside York (YO19) area so away from salt air etc so its kept nice and not suffered from the dreaded rot as much as some other minis, but there are age related blisters under the lights as seen in photos, some rust on the A panels etc, but nothing that needs immediate attention.

The car has no tax so will need to be trailered away, there is a excellent transport company near me called Y3 Transport in York who have transported a car for me in the past, they are fairly priced and easy to deal with.

I'm selling this mini to fund another mini, so I'd appreciate prompt payment but I'm happy to store this mini in dry storage until you can collect or have it collected, but will need payment.

Please email me or call me to arrange viewings or ask any questions, i have no buy it now price and the mini will stay on ebay until the end of the auction so to make it fair to everybody interested. My number is 07801833330. 

Thankyou for looking and good luck with your bids
