1993 Rover Mini Rio 1275cc (70328 miles)

Reluctantly selling much beloved mini due to growing family.

I have owned this car since May 2012 bought following a full rebuild which was published in Mini Magazine October 2008, a copy of which comes with the car.  The full rebuild can also be seen online, please follow attached link (

Colour is metallic turquoise, a one off mix as close to the original as possible, white checked roof and original interior.

Since I bought the car it has had a modified centralised exhaust with catalyst convertor fitted to meet MOT standards,  cork gasket replacement throughout engine except on timing chain cover, new HT leads, new coil, new battery, new door seals and new chrome wing mirrors. Haynes manual also available.  Spare tyre and jack included.

Selling car with 12 months MOT, work completed to achieve this includes offside & nearside ball joints, offside & nearside suspension arm, nearside bearing, rear brake cylinders all replaced.  No road tax but will consider putting 6 months on for right price.

Car starts first time, every time and runs like a dream, she is mechanically sound and has never broken down on me. 

The car has a Kenwood CD player with iPhone and USB connectors and Alpine components fitted to rear parcel shelf.

Bad points

  • small tear in drivers seat
  • front near side tyre needs replacing
  • oil leak from timing chain cover
  • small bubble on both front wings

Happy to answer any questions and queries and send additional photos on request.  No time wasters please.  Buyer to collect.

Happy bidding!!!
