1998 ROVER MINI COOPER 1.3i MPI

Instantly recognised around the world, the Mini is without doubt one of the most iconic cars to be designed and built in the UK. It was invented by Englishman Alec Issigonis and produced by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. Though small in size, the Mini’s space-saving transverse engine and front-wheel drive arrangement allowed for 80% of the floorplan area to be used for occupants and their luggage, a layout that influenced a generation of car manufacturers. On 4th October 2000, after 41 memorable years and 5,387,862 produced, production of the “Classic” Mini came to an end.

This Mini Cooper 1.3i was first sold by Rover Approved garage Hartwell on 21st May 1998 and is presented in anthracite with contrasting white roof and body decals. Distinguishing features include a stainless steel exhaust system, Minilite alloy wheels, chrome interior trim and a burr walnut dash with magnolia faced dials.

The Mini is in splendid condition throughout having been carefully maintained and dry stored since 2011. She is sold newly serviced and MoT’d until 11th June 2022 and supplied with a comprehensive file of service history, MoT certificates and sundry receipts dating back to the point of registration and confirming the mileage of 77,000 to be correct. The original service book together with owner’s handbooks are also present.
