SOLD Rover Mini Equinox. 1275cc. Stunning. Amarenth Purple. Full lenght electric roof. Only 21k.


We are very pleased to offer an absolutely stunning and eye catching Rover Mini Equinox. Produced in 1996 the Equinox limited editions were one of the best looking examples of the era. Finished in three colours and all having the Moon and Stars logo on the flanks and on the trim fabric. Only 750 were produced and only 150 remain on the roads today and this is the rarest colour so you join an exclusive club. Our example also has the added benefit of a full length electric sunroof, a very expensive and desirable factory option at the time which transforms the driving experience at the touch of a button. Our Equinox has only covered 21k in 22 years and is accompanied with a comprehensive service hostory right back to day one and its original handbooks, wallet and service books.

Finished in Metallic Ameranth purple, a colour that really sets of the Minis shape and enhanced with a set of twelve inch Ultralite wheels with four new Falken tyres, our Equinox certainly gots lots of attention. In the sun the colour really pops and the new wheels really set the whole car off.

On the road its a fantastic drive. The low mileage engine fires instantly and is very smooth and is mated to a very precise gearbox. It does have a real time warp feel as its only averaged just under one thousand miles a year. Its a single point fuel injected Mini or SPi. All you need to do to get out on the open road is turn the key and go. Its also fitted with a factory alarm and immobiliser, servo operated disc brakes and rear seat belts.

The interior is one of the best that Rover ever produced for the Mini and finding one in this condition is very rare, it really is like new. The half leather Moon and Stars seats are unmarked, as is the carpets, roof lining, dash and switch panel. The original Rover cassette player is also still present.

As you can imagine this Mini has a fantastic shell. Its still purple inside all four arches and on the underside. The original rear subframe is like new and its still wearing all its original panels, from the sills, to the boot floor and the wings, there is very little evidence of paintwork and the engine bay is also nicely detailed. This Mini really is a joy to behold and belies its years. It was registered as a Cat D 5 years ago but this does not detract from its condition and the Mini was not damaged in any way and is certainly reflected in the price.

Our Equinox is fully serviced, has a long MOT and is ready to be enjoyed and impress your friends. It could easily be displayed at shows but its more at home being driven and with such a low mileage it has many more years ahead of it. Viewings are welcome and I am happy to answer questions you may have either through here or on 07752414395 or 01425 839617 (Paul)
