HIGHLIGHTS ∙Limited edition only 750 built ∙Pearlescent Amaranth colour ∙Original Interior of "Astral" and flower design giving a 60’s feel ∙Good runner Low mileage (43,300 miles only) THE BACKGROUND: This Mini was a limited production of only 750 cars. The interior fabrics has an "Astral" and flower design making it unique to this model. The car has opening rear quarter windows and a Rover R660 radio cassette player we use to plug our phone for music. We added a USB port to be able to charge our phones. In addition, the car was finished off with chrome bumpers and grille. There are two sets of keys with an immobiliser handset for the factory fitted anti-theft alarm and a blocking stirring wheel system. We are selling the car as we don’t need it anymore. We have moved very closed to our children's school and we don’t need to drive the kids to school anymore. THE PAPERWORK: The car last 3 MOT’s pass documents are present and in the last three years the car has only covered 3000 miles. The cars original user manual is also with the vehicle. THE INTERIOR: The car’s interior is in good condition, floor is solid, the seats are free of any marks, door cards are fine. overall the interior is in very good order for the age of the vehicle. THE EXTERIOR: The car’s exterior is as pictured and would benefit from having cosmetic bodyworks if you want to get it back to show condition. Noticeable areas which would need attention are the offside print door that has a rust patch along the bottom of the edge, and a dent on the off side front wing. The original fitted front and rear chrome bumpers have suffers from small bumps due to casual Londoner’s parking. The boot interior is clean. THE MECHANICS: The mechanics and the under body are as well in very good condition as they were serviced professionally3 times a year. MOT Pass and valid until June 2022. THE APPEAL: Ever since the Mini was introduced over sixty years ago it has appeared in some limited-edition guises. This edition with only 750 produced is a rare car, especially in the Amaranth pearlescent colour. This car low mileage makes it a great project car as it would need little attention to get it back to show condition, mechanically good and with that sophisticated interior design and flamboyant colour it's sure to stand out from the crowd for a lot of years to come. It’s a very responsive car and so much fun to drive, expect plenty of smile, waving and cheering from everyone (kids to seniors). So step back in time and enjoy one of the last of the limited runs of the classic Mini design.
