1996 classic rover mini cooper 1.3i spi

This classic Mini was first registered on 2nd May 1996 and is presented in iconic British Racing Green with contrasting white roof and body decals. Features include twin-spotlights, Minilite alloy wheels, black leather seats, chrome interior trim, leather bound ‘Cooper’ steering wheel, burr walnut dash and a three-clock binnacle with magnolia faced dials.

The Mini has covered approximately 39,000 miles from new and has been under the same family ownership since 2010, having spent its early life in the Channel Islands. In 2013 (or 3,000 miles ago) the Mini was subject to a £14,000 restoration carried out by Mini Speed.

The Mini is in fantastic order having been carefully maintained. The exterior presents in splendid condition and all panels appear flush and straight. The chrome is in very good order and the exterior plastics and rubbers have retained their rich black colour. The 1275cc engine is sprightly, pulling well through all four gears and braking effectively.

The classic Mini is sold newly serviced and MoT’d with no advisories and also benefits from a new RC40 exhaust, two new Yokohama A539 tyres, refurbished alloy wheels and re-lacquered burr walnut dash and door trim. Supplied with two sets of keys, owners handbooks and a history file including the extensive restoration works in 2013.

This Classic Mini is now sold.

What our customers say

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.
