SOLD 1998 Rover Mini Mayfair. 1300i White Diamond. Only 43k. 3 Owners. Subtle styling. Ready to go.


We are very pleased to offer a beautifully presented 1998 Rover Mini Mayfair finished in the rare colour of White Diamond, complimented with Pepperpot alloys and a chrome grille. This example has only covered 43k in 22 years with only three previous owners, the last since 2005 and is accompanied with its original hanbooks, fully stamped service book, every MOT certificate and a detailed service history folder including its original bill of sale. This Mini is one of a small batch of Minis bult for the Japaneese market but were never sent so has been a UK car from new. There is a letter from the supplying dealer stating an economic down turn in Japan in the late nineties meant that a small batch of Minis were never exported and this is one of them.

On the road this Mini drives very well indeed. The fuel injected 1275 engine is very smooth and pulls well through a smooth gearbox. This model also has servo operated disc brakes so it stops very well. This Mini, as mentioned, is fuel injected, so all thats required to get out on the open road is a simple turn of the key. It also has a drivers airbag, side impact beams and rear seat belts. Performance is brisk and of course, being a Mini it handles very well indeed and will make you smile.

This Mini has a well presented interior with half leather Balmoral check trim and a full length Walnut dash. This example was destined for warmer climates so has the added feature of Air Conditioning which will come in handy during the summer months. It has its original Rover cassette player and a 12V adaptor.

This Mini also has a solid shell with vented sills, solid floor pans and gleaming boot floor. The paintwork is fantatsic and we have also just treated this Mini to new window rubbers, bumpers, grille, colour coded arches and headlamps. It has a fantastic retro look and is very subtle. It certainly gets lots of attention when its out and about. There are not many White Minis and the colour really suits the shape.

We have also worked through this Mini front to back with many new parts and its fully serviced. It has a long no advisory MOT and is ready to go and be enjoyed.
