1996 Rover Mini Sidewalk. 1275cc. Ltd Edition. White Diamond. Only 14k. FSH. Very original and rare.


We are pleased to offer a very low mileage and stunning Rover Mini Sidewalk. These have always been my favourite of this era of Mini as they have that fantastic Tartan trim. Only 1000 were made in three colours and very few remain in this original spec and it has been a very long time since I have had a White example. This fantastic Mini has covered only 14k in 24 years and is a true original survivor and now very rare indeed. It is accompanied with a comprehensive service history including the original bill of sale from Rodgers Rover dealership in Plymouth, the original Rover handover documents, extended warranty certificate, a raft of main dealer receipts and futher service receipts, every MOT certificate and previous tax discs. It still has all its original factory stickers, Rodgers dealer plates, tax disc holder, service interval sticker and original leather key fob. The provenance is fantastic and points to what a charmed life this Mini has had.

Driving this Mini is a close as you can get to driving a new one. The 1275 engine is very quiet and smooth and the gearbox feels taught and precise. This Mini is fuel injected, so all thats required to get out on the open road is a simple turn of the key. It also features an alarm and immobiliser, rear seat belts and servo operated disc brakes. Performance is very brisk and wider profile Yokohama tyres means it handles like a Mini should. Driving this Sidewalk will certainly make you smile.

Sidewalk Minis are known for there distinctive trim. Blue check Tartan seats, matching door cards and red seat belts really do set this Mini off. The interior in this example still looks and feels new. It is as it left the factory right down to the original Rover stereo. Externally the Sidewalk theme is continued with graphics, matching stripes and bonett badge.

This Mini has a fantatsic shell. It has all its original panels, gleaming body coloured floorpans and its white up inside all four wheel arches and underneath. This is an unrestored example that really does bely its years. The Paintwork gleams and the Rover Minilte wheels really do finish off the look.

This Sidewalk has been fully serviced front to back and has a full no advisory MOT so is ready to go and be driven and enjoyed and is virtually unique in this preserved condition.
