1991 Rover Mini Cooper Carb. 1275cc. British Racing green. Only 34k. 2 Owners. FSH. Very rare.


We are very pleased to offer a super rare 1991 Rover Mini Cooper finished in British racing green with a contrasting white roof and bonnet stripes. This Cooper has only covered 34 thousand miles in 32 years and is accompanied with a full and comprehensive service history a detailed list of all works completed in chronological order. All of the original handbooks, service book and owners manuals are present, spare keys and the original sales brochure, in short it has excellent provenance and it has also only had two previous owners. Carb fed Coopers are very rare and sought after especially in standard factory spec. Rover relaunched the Cooper after a long waited 20 year gap in 1990 and they were an instant sales success. Very quickly after the relaunch the carb was replaced for a fuel injection system making these early cars the last true carb fed Coopers. Many were modified and had hard lives so finding a low mileage, low owner example is a great find.

On the road this Cooper drives as it should do and is great fun. The 1275 engine is both smooth and responsive and offers easy to use power, this is a very easy Mini to drive. The gearbox is precise and the handling is fantastic. It will certainly make you smile. It also has servo operated disc brakes and rear belts. The true Cooper driving experience on offer.

The interior is all original with Crayon trim seats, three clock dash with a rev counter and green dials, Cooper leather steering wheel and the original Rover cassette player. The carpets, seats and roof liner are all very well preserved and inside this Mini has a nice low mileage feel.

The Mini has a very solid shell and appears to be mostly original. It has the correct and original vented sills, untouched boot floor, body coloured floor pans and the original factory waxoil on the underside. The subframes are in very good condition, this Mini benefits from being cared for throughout its life. The paintwork is very well presented and belies its 32 year vintage. This is a good looking Mini Cooper.

The Mini is fully serviced, checked and driven and has near full MOT so is ready to go and be driven and enjoyed.
