Here for sale is my Rover Mini Cooper Sport 500 on 8156 miles. The Mini is 1 of the final 500 to be made of the original design, this Mini is number 319 of 500 complete with certificate signed by John Cooper. This Mini is known and registered with the Mini Cooper Sport 500 register and is confirmed as the genuine thing. The Mini is as you would expect on such low mileage, it is as new and got awarded joint 1st place in a show and shine competition recently at a classic car show. I'm selling the mini as I'm needing to release the funds for family reasons. 

 The Mini was bought new in 2001 and was used as a weekend car until the 3 year warranty ran out, when the warranty ran out the mini was taken off the road and stored for nearly 10 years in a heated dry garage in a carcoon. The mini was clear waxoiled underneath from new so everything underneath is as clean as the day it left Longbridge, well preserved and 100% solid/rust free.

In my ownership the mini has been used at shows etc, the car has never seen rain, its never been abused etc. This mini has been loved and adored by its 2 previous owners and myself, this reflects in its current condition. 

The sills still have the block marks from where it sat on the production line ready for painting which in its self is incredibly rare (photo shown) Needless to say there is no rust etc on this mini and no mechanical issues, it’s a true collectors car and will no doubt increase in value.

The car comes complete with its original glove box plaque, certificate, jack and bag, boot carpet and mats, there is also a large file full of history, there is also the original service history book and manuals etc.

 The boot floor, sills and floor paintwork is as good as the exterior, the subframes, brake pipes, nuts and bolts etc underneath are without any corrosion and again look as new showing very little aging.

 The only non original bit of this car is the tyres, the original Dunlops were obviously 14 years old so for safety reasons I have replaced these for the Yoko tyres.

Included in this sale is the unique reg number M500BRG, Mini 500 British Racing Green which seams very fitting to the car and would be a shame to remove it from the car, but that will be the new owners decision.

I can not pick any faults with this car apart from a couple of very minor marks on 1 of the bonnet stripes, it is as new throughout and reflects 8156 miles. I can not say it is 100% perfect but its as close as your going to get without paying the £24000 price tag of the delivery mileage examples of this car. 

The car is located in York and any viewing welcome and encouraged, the car is taxed and has 9 months MOT so it can be driven away, or i do know of a good delivery firm called Y3 Transport located in York, i am happy to assist with loading the car etc for transport


All payments must be cleared before the mini leaves



Thanks for looking
