2001 Mini Cooper

SOLD £7,952

Tidy late model MkVII Mini Cooper with the 1.3i four-cylinder lump developing 62bhp that’s covered an indicated 75,186 miles. Finished in blue with contrasting black half leatherette and cloth interior with matching blue dash and cream dials it looks very smart, with the added bonus of a full length Webasto sunroof. Supplied new in March 2001, it has had just four previous owners, the last since 2010. During this ten year period, the car was been treated to a full engine rebuild in 2015 at 67,215 miles by E & A Hammond of Flintshire which included 4 new pistons, a reground crank, new main and big end bearings, new oil pump, a cylinder head service and new gaskets at a cost of £1152. The ream of documentation on file include invoices from Somerford Mini for a new bonnet, new front panel, two new wings, RH and LH A-panel hinges, new bumpers, headlights, dash rail and coach stripes costing some £1050 in 2011, another £763 spent on a suspension pack, brake shoes, 2.5" wide arch kit and 4 new tyres from Mini Spares in 2007. Another invoice shows purchase of the lovely 4.5x10J MiniLife alloy wheels in 2010 , another for Bilstein B4 gas dampers front and rear in 2016 as well as new engine and subframe mounts in 2016. Most recently, the car was given a major service costing £495 in June 2016 at 73,308 miles and fitment of a new Delphi clutch master cylinder in March of this year. The history file includes the V5C, old V5, the file of invoices mentioned, 10 old MOTs and an in depth guide to Minis with chassis decoder. This smart little Cooper comes with a current MOT valid until 30th April 2021 with no advisories recorded and as such, represents an exciting opportunity to bag a cracker of a late Cooper before BMW took over and got all German and hyper-efficient on us all and Minis became a fashion statement or a billboard for certain London estate agents to hoon around in!
