Description

This is my 1991 Rover Mini Studio 2, long been known as Colin. Current mileage at 62200 miles which may increase slightly. MOT is good until 26th June 2018. 8 Former keepers on V5C. Price is negotiable.
I have owned this car since 2008 when it had done just 27000 miles. It is a joy of a car to own and drive and I will be sad to see it go, but I am leaving the UK for a while and don't want it sitting on the driveway unloved and exposed to the beautiful British weather. It was off the road Sep 2015 - May 2017 when I was away last, prior to that it was my daily driver for several years.
Recent work on the car includes:
*New Alternator Jul 17
*Welding to sills driver + passenger (first time) Jun 17
*Welding to subframe and mounts
*New fabricated A Panels
*New Fuse Box + Spark Plugs
*New Heater Matrix
*New Battery Jan 17
The only non standard parts of the car are the alloys (installed Aug 2011) and a Stage 1 kit as can be found on Minispares (installed Feb 2015).
The car is sounds mechanically and in fairly good condition considering its age. The main point that lets it down is the body work. It does have points of bubbling in some of the usual Mini places and the N/S front wing does have a hole where rust has broken through.
The only advisory from the MOT was the O/S rear tyre is close to the legal limit and will need replacing. All the tyres were new with the alloys and I did swap the front and rears at some point to balance the tread usage. They have all done about 24000 miles.
It comes with the original jack, original hub caps and original radio with manual if you want them.
The current radio is a basic CD player with AUX input which sounds great through the factory speakers.
I have the original owners manual and a folder full of receipts, old MOTs and other history which is pretty solid back to 2000.
All the work done to the car since I've owned it has been done on the driveway or at Croydon Minis. The V5C indicates the car was accident damaged and identity checked in Dec 2007. Unfortunately I have no details of this and the previous owner did not tell me anything about it. The guys at the garage tell me that the O/S front wing has been changed at some point and when I bought the car the starter motor was damaged. I replaced the starter motor at the time and there are no remaining damages.
Like I say I have had the car for over 9.5 years so have a good knowledge of its current condition and I will be sad to see him go. Minis are becoming rarer and their value is going up, but I would rather not leave it on the drive to potentially deteriorate for another couple of years.
I have plenty more detailed pictures which I will happily send via email at request.
If you have any queries or want to have a look please contact Rich on 07986802325 call/text or via email. No calls after 9pm please, thanks for reading.
