1993 ROVER MINI Rio - £5,700 Open to...
I've owned the car since october 2016 but life has put me in a position where it is time for the little car to move on. During my ownership extensive work has been carried out. It is MOT'd until May. I bought the car black and with no front end! The current spec is:
Rebored 1293cc engine with decked block
Maniflow stage 2 manifold
Maniflow Monza exhaust (sounds amazing)
Hiff 44 with cone filter
Lucas dizzy with powespark electronic ignitiin kit
Cross pin diff
Rebuilt gearbox including new main shaft in last 1000 miles
Adjustarides all round
Gas a just dampers
Cosmic 6x10 wheels
Minisport 7.5 4-pot brake kit on the front
Swiftune sw5 cam (now produces around 64bhp at the wheels)
Wooden steering wheel from Huddersfield spares
Complete respray in custom grey and red (inspired by mk1 aussie coopers)
Mk2 rear lights
New chrome bumpers and grille
The list goes on
The majority of this work was carried out within the last 3000 miles including the engine, paint, suspension and brakes.
This car is solid and has had during my ownership, a new outer sill, new front end and scuttle, new rear quater panel, new rear valence and a new genuine rear subframe amongst various other parts.
It has been well looked after but is no pristine trailer queen. This is a car that was made to be driven. The engine was built with the intention of supercharging at a later date but my plans have now changed.
I have loved this car every day of ownership and will truly be sad to see it go. If you'd like to know more then I will do my best to answer all that I can. I'm in no rush to sell this as it took a lot of time effort and planning to build and so I only want to let it go for what I feel it is worth. Also included in the sale will be an italian job spotlamp bar with 3 55W Wipac spotlamps the car has the hole drilled for this to be fitted I just never put them back on after the respray.
Car is located in Sunderland.
