We are very pleased to offer an increasingly rare and collectable Carb Rover Mini Cooper. Launched in 1990 from increasing pressure form the public for a return of the Mini Cooper. Rover obliged and the result was a resounding success and they featured white roofs, bonnet stripes, Minilite wheels, sports trim and spot lamps. The reason why the early ones are so rare is that the carburettor versions were only made for around 18 months as they were changed to fuel injection. Even fewer survive in their original specification and we have one.
Our 91 Cooper is finished in Flame red with a contrasting white roof. It has only covered 73k in 26 years with two previous owners and is accompanied with all its original handbooks and a service history folder and two sets of keys.
Its factory spec and these Coopers really are fantastic drivers cars in particular this one. If you want a Mini cooper to enjoy on the open roads as it should be then this Mini is for you. The 1275 engine offers really strong performance and pulls right through the rev range and just keeps going, the gearbox is smooth and everything just works well. You cant help but smile when out driving this one.
The interior has been very well looked after commensurate with a two owner car. It has its original seats, three clock dash and Rover radio cassette still in working order. The headlining is like new as are the carpets and it still has its original floor matts as well as a feature i have not seen before, a factory fitted Rover fire extinguisher which apparently was an option at the time.
This Cooper also has a very solid shell with its original vented sills, wings and front panel. The floor pans are solid as are the subframes. As you can see form the pics the paintwork does gleam. It does have a few age related marks as its not a restored example but they are purely cosmetic and befitting of a car ready for the road and does not detract from its looks.
This Cooper is fully serviced and has an MOT until July next year. Its waiting for a Cooper enthusiast to cherish and drive it.
