1999 classic rover mini john cooper le 40

The Mini John Cooper LE 40 was released in 1999 with a production run of 300 units as a tribute to 40 years of the Mini and to pay homage to the 40th anniversary of the Cooper F1 World Championship. The LE 40 was only available in Brooklands Green with an Old English White roof and bonnet stripes, over a contrasting Grenadine Red leather interior trim. Each car was built to a very high specification, which included Rallye-style spot lamps, Sportspack wheel arches, 13” alloy wheels and an engine-turned dash with Magnolia faced dials.

This Mini John Cooper LE 40 was supplied new by Dixon Rover on 4th November 1999 and is a fantastic example. The Mini boasts 21000 miles from new and has been under the ownership of the same family for the past 17 years, with recurring periods unused in storage.

The exterior presents superbly and all panels are believed to be original apart from the outer door skins. The original factory spot welds are on inner wings and the original factory ‘body’ number is present on the slam panel. The Mini has its original vented sills both sides. The interior is in excellent condition and reflects the low mileage.

The Mini is sold newly serviced and MOT'd with no advisories and also benefits from a new Maniflow exhaust and four new tyres. Supplied with the Mini is a history file which includes the original stamped service book.

I have just sold my 2001 Rover Mini Cooper Sport to Phil Mires. During the process, I have been impressed with the professional attitude and genuine support received. I was very impressed by his knowledge and vision. First class methodology and extremely prompt payment make this endorsement easy to write. I wish him every success for the future.

Alan MacDonald

Phil is a really genuine, honest, respectful and polite man to deal with. He was very flexible and made our transaction very smooth, even completing all the paperwork and kept me fully informed throughout. I would not hesitate to use the company again. Thank you Phil.

Gemma Page

From start to finish Phil was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Knowledgeable, professional and kind. I absolutely adore my new (but old!) Mini Cooper. She's a beauty! Would definitely recommend and if I'm in the market for a classic again, Phil Mires Classic Cars would be my first port of call.
