The vendor advises this Mini Cooper Sport with just four former keepers has received a full ground up restoration costing over £16,000 in 2018/19. He now describes its condition as “excellent” regarding its body, paintwork, engine, transmission and interior. Purchased in June 2018, as a runner requiring light restoration, it was completely stripped and a thorough restoration commenced including replacing virtually all the exterior with OEM new parts including front panel, wings, bonnet, A panels, scuttle, dash panel, door skins, boot lid, rear valance, sills, brightwork etc. The car was then resprayed in its original British Racing Green with silver roof and a new decal kit applied. The seats were removed and professionally refinished, a new headlining, carpets and mats installed along with a DAB/Bluetooth Stereo with hands free and aerial upgrade. Mechanically the engine was comprehensively overhauled with all new parts (cylinders, pulleys, water pump etc) and most other ancillaries replaced (seals and gaskets, filters, plugs, coolant pipes, brake drums, shoes, liners etc.) Since completion in September 2019, it has been stored inside under a custom cover in heated conditions.
