JAPANESE SPEC MINI, FUEL INJECTED 1275CC, 4 SPEED, A/C CAR, RIGHT HAND DRIVE!
A lot of us would love to have an original Mini, especially in right-hand drive. But often we're not willing to give up creature comforts. That's what makes this one so appealing. Although registered as a 1969 Mini Cooper, it's not hard to see that features like an airbag and air conditioning make this a much more modern machine - produced in 1998.
We know you love the look of these original Minis. With sharp blue paint and a freshly resprayed white roof that's just ready for a Union Jack, this is a striking car. The shape is unmistakable, and with all the chrome and trim receiving a refresh, you can't help but smile at this icon. The original Mini is beloved for their agile handling and rugged mechanicals that dominated rally events of the time. This one pays perfect tribute to that spirit with all the details like the fog lights and Minilite-style wheels.
Part of what made the Mini so revolutionary was that despite its diminutive size, pushing the wheels to corners meant four people could genuinely fit inside. But while those roots are utilitarian, this later one received all the best factory upgrades to give it a level of comfort that the early ones could only dream about. The stylish buckets are piped in a cream color that matches the seatbelts, gearstick, and steering wheel. It's a true British icon, so even though this is a Japanese-spec model, people will be happy to see you arrive with the driver on the right. Also as a true English car there's plenty of wood trim on the dash and doors. But will really make you fall in love are the modern features. This includes the driver's airbag, full gauge package, and A/C. Yes, you really can have cold air conditioning in an original Mini!
Under the hood is the correct 1275cc four-cylinder engine. This A+ Series motor is a well-known and widely used powerplant that found a home in plenty of British vehicles, which makes parts availability quite easy. This was the largest engine that could fit in these little cars, and because this was part of the final series, it was even upgraded to fuel injection. That means 60+ horsepower, which is going to give you impressive performance for a car of this size – especially under the control of the four-speed manual transmission. Combine the quick nature with front disc brakes and steering that is so exact it feels telepathic, and you've got in your hands on all the reasons why people are passionate about driving.
This Mini has an intoxicating mix of iconic style and great upgrades. We already seldom see original Minis, so an exceptional one like this may never available again. Call today!!!
