ROVER MINI COOPER (1994) CHASSIS N. SAXXNNAYNBD079085, ENGINE: 4 CYLINDER, DISPLACEMENT: 1275 CM3, POWER: 63 BHP, BODY: TWO DOOR SALOON, GEARBOX: MANUAL, DRIVE: LHD, THE LAST VERSION OF THE CLASSIC MINI
Launched in August 1959, the Mini went on providing affordable motoring and contributing in the social changes of the 1960s. Having obtained an almost mythical status, it kept on through the 1970s and ‘80s regardless of how the world was changing, but in the 1990s it too had to retire, as it could not possibly keep up with the safety and anti-pollution rules. The fact that meanwhile the whole British Automotive industry had collapsed did ot help… It had been produced by BMC, BLMC, and finally Rover… which was in turn bought by BMW. As the Bavarian Motor Works had planned to launch a completely new Mini in the early 2000s, it kept the old one alive in order to avoid the Brand to lose its appeal. The car offered today was produced in this very last period and therefore it is the most modern old Mini: enhanced with electronic fuel injection, with catalyzer and Euro 1 rating. It had just two owners and has been driven for only 41,000 miles. It was always perfectly cared for, and very recently it has received a thorough check and service, with a new sport eshaust system and new tyres. Body and upholstery are original, they have just been cleaned, polished and detailed. It has regular Italian papers, and its biennial “MOT” is valid until April 2021. This vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition but for safety reasons, we advise the purchaser to check its fluids, filters and perishable elements.
