1987 AUSTIN MINI Advantage - £7,995
1987 CLASSIC AUSTIN MINI ADVANTAGE WHITE
MOT EXPIRES JULY 2017 SO YOU JUST NEED TO TAX AND INSURE AND GO!
Thank you for viewing our listing for this wonderful 1987 Classic Mini Advantage which has been renovated with many hours of care and attention to a very high standard. There is no substitute for seeing this car in person and when driving this car on the road it is sure to attract more attention from passersby than a Ferrari and will never fail to make people smile.
You will be everyone's best friend whilst behind the wheel of this car as strangers will want to come and speak to you about their happy childhood memories or even their dreams of owning a Mini too. They will stop, stare and check the car from top to bottom and before giving you their approval and walking off with either a smile or in some cases maybe a little envious too. The summer is the best time to be on the road with this car as the paintwork really comes to life. It has been re-sprayed Lamborghini White and really catches the sunlight really well.
We are very reluctant to sell this car however as we have another project on the go at the moment so are limited to space and so sadly after owning 'Mimi' since 2008 and spending many hours on this car, it's time to see Mimi leave the family.
Please find below as much information as we could possibly provide which I hope helps and if you need to know anything further you are more than welcome to get in touch by calling or emailing .
This is a 1987 Classic Mini Advantage that has been fully customised and renovated as a project.
Alpine Head Unit MP3/ CD / AM / FM Radio, Pioneer speakers, car cover.
The car has had many parts added which include sports pack arches, wide alloy wheels, front and rear chrome bumpers, chrome mirrors, chrome grill and trim, chrome aerial, chrome light covers, new headlights, new chrome rear number plate light, new chrome boot hinges, Aston Martin style chrome petrol cap. The paintwork is a wonderful Lamborghini White colour which looks well against the Mini's curvy lines. We have given this car considerable attention whilst in our ownership; a full re-spray was carried out several years ago purely for aesthetic reasons and has been finished to an excellent standard. As such the paintwork is in good condition and boasts a deep shine when the sun comes out, there are also very few stone chips or blemishes on the paintwork. There are certain areas that could do with a little attention just to bring it back to it's full glory and details of these bits have been listed below in the section titled item sepcifics. All of the black trim and window rubbers have been replaced and remain in excellent condition with no damage.
Fully customised interior where the contrasting red and white leather match perfectly with the bright white exterior. The visors feature a red interior and white exterior when folded up. The headrests and steering centre feature embossed artwork which also appears on the dials too. The gear lever cover has been custom made in a nice deep red colour to match the interior panels. Contrasting piping is featured on all seats. The steering wheel has been hand stitched to a very high standard and both front seats are in good order with only some light wrinkles in the leather in some parts of the interior. The rear seats are in especially good condition, still feeling supple and soft due to the limited use over the years. The boot is finished and lined with a deep red material matching the interior perfectly. An internal bonnet release mechanism has also been added for security purposes and ease of access to the engine. A new centre console has also been added trimmed out to match the interior. All speed dials have also been replaced which again match the interior fully.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The standard gear box has been replaced with a quick shift gear box making the driving experience in this Mini very sporty due to the accuracy and smoothness of the gear changes. The gear lever has been replaced with a chrome gear lever and knob. The engine has been fully tuned and runs very smoothly with plenty of torque being generated. A full new exhaust system has also been fitted with a chrome tailpipe trim to match the chrome exterior. Also recently an electronic ignition has been installed to make it easier to start in any weather. Car starts up beautifully and purrs like a cat!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The alloy wheels have all been replaced with wide tyres for amazing handling and remain unmarked with no scuffs. Almost all the bolt caps are also in perfect condition with no lacquer peel to be found. There are a couple of bolt covers which will need to be replaced as they appear to have come away at some point. The tyres are still showing plenty of tread all-round.
Having recently had discs, pads and hoses replaced the braking system feels much stronger in operation.
The car has recently had a BRAND NEW REAR SUB-FRAME fitted which has been fully powder coated. Other additions and replacements include track rod end and rack boot, brake pads, discs, wipers and washer pipe, flexi brake pipe, copper brake pipe, brake fluid, polyurethane bushes and mounts fitted, trunions replaced. The carburettor has also been recently tuned.
GET IN TOUCH
The purchaser of this car shouldnt need to do anything for a good few years to this car now and with the right care and attention can be a part of your life for many years to come. If you would like to ask any further questions please do feel free to call.
The body work has a few very minor areas that need a little attention to the front around the lights and also front and rear bumper. Small part on drivers side door at the very bottom has a small defect along with a small chip on the bonnet. Rear Passenger arch needs a very thin gap filling. Drivers side door card has a water mark on the leather trim however the sheer beauty of the car makes these minor bits almost invisible.
