1994 MINI RALLYE MONTE CARLO - £6,500 ovno
I purchased this Mini in Sept. 2016. I drove it home to Cornwall from London and it didn't miss a beat, since then it has covered about 60 miles.
MOT'd until 05 June 2018.
I work away at sea and it is not getting used. Plus the fact we have 4 other vehicles.
I put the battery on an Optimate when I go away to sea and when I return I start the car, it starts at the first turn of the key.
I have taken the text below from the original advert when I purchased the car.
