We are very pleased to offer a wonderfully original and rare Charcoal grey Sidewalk limited edition Mini. This gem has covered only 32k from new and has had only three previous owners in 23 years. It is accompanied by a full and comprehensive service folder including all MOTs and service receipts, handbooks, spare keys and the original Sidewalk sales brochure.

Sidewalk Minis have always been a popular limited edition. Only one thousand were made in three colours and only 250 in metallic Charcoal grey so this is a rare Mini, rarer still that is totally standard and I would imagine not far off unique. It has been enhanced with a set of Minilte alloys and four chrome spot lamps.

The joy with this Mini is how it has been cared for. Jump in it and it feels good . Drive it and the feeling is the same. The 1275 fuel injected engine purrs almost silently and the gearbox still has a taught new feel. This Mini just drives so well and when pushed it really flies down the road and its an enjoyable drive. This is a fuel injected Mini so all you have to do is turn the key and go, it also features an alarm and immobilser, rear seat belts and servo operated disc brakes.

Sidewalk Minis also have a unique Tartan check trim with red seatbelts. A feature that really sets them apart from other Limited editions of the era and its what makes them so popular. This example also has a very smart matching dashboard with a Minivation mobile phone holder, 12 volt adapter and a Sony CD/AUX. It also features Sony rear speakers and further 6×9 speakers under the rear seats. The carpets and roof liner are also in very good condition and it has the feel of a low mileage cared for example.

This Sidewalk has a solid shell with virtually blemish free paintwork, solid floors and boot and the correct sills, the subframes are both solid and it belies its vintage.

The Mini is fully serviced and has a long MOT so its ready to be driven and enjoyed.
