** DEPOSIT PAID ** 1996 Rover Mini Cooper 35 in Almond Green with a white roof. This is 1 of 200 UK Cooper 35s ever made so is a very rare car. They made them to celebrate 35 years of the mini Cooper and painted them all in Almond green which was one of the most popular 60s Mini Cooper colours. This example was bought new by a retired lady who used it for the first 10 years of its life covering 12300 miles. During this time she had it serviced 10 times by the supplying Rover dealer and the service book is fully stamped to support this. It was waxoiled from new and always garaged so when it was sold to its next enthusiast owner he was amazed at the remarkable condition of the mini. The next owner then spent a small fortune on the car with lots of cosmetic and performance improvements. The interior was treated to MK 1 Cooper seats front and rear by Newton Commercial which today would cost £1700. It also received a lovely John Cooper / Motalita steering wheel and other period touches. The engine was then improved with an MED performance cylinder head, roller rockers and an LCB exhaust manifold with RC 40 exhaust. This resulted in a rolling road power output of 85bhp which was tested at Mini Sport. The brakes were uprated to vented front discs with Green Stuff pads and Mini Fins at the rear. Road holding was improved by new adjustable dampers, wider alloy wheels and 165 width performance tyres. The entire car was waxoiled again underneath and wheel arch liners fitted to the front to stop any mud and dirt getting into the wheel arch area. The end result of all of the expense and careful thought that has gone into this mini is a quiet, smooth and exciting drivers car that goes, stops and handles wonderfully. The history file is one of the biggest I have seen and details everything that has been completed and also shows the high level of servicing. There are past MOTs also to support the mileage of just 14800 miles in the last 23 years! This wonderful and very rare mini would suit a mini enthusiast who wants the classic appeal of a 60s Cooper but with the usability of an injection mini. This is a rare and special opportunity to own a very low mileage, quality, Mini Cooper which has been improved with great thought and care.
