Rover Metro 1.4 GTi For Sale (1990)This is a very rare early single point injection Metro GTi in original and pristine condition. The car is currently part of a private collection and only on sale following the completion of a long term Metro GTi cabriolet project. Used only during the summer itís now very much under used and needs a new home. I purchased the car from its long term lady owner in 2008 when she gave up driving. This car has a full detailed service history and every MOT from three years old and is not messed about as most hot hatches of this period have been. The current mileage is a very low 42K though I have covered 5K since 2008.
Finished in the most desirable GTi colour Storm Gray all panels are straight and rust free, the car has been wax oiled from new and always garaged. When I purchased the car I removed the full body kit and rust-proofed all the hidden areas including front and rear sub-frames, replacing the retaining screws with stainless and polishing the paintwork to a high gloss. Floor pans and underside painted gloss black. There are some very small stone chips and a very small blemish on one rear wheel arch but the prove originality and donít detract from the cars overall appearance in anyway. The car has bumpers which are scuff free and the original dealer number-plates fitted.
Lightning Granite Interior trim is in fantastic original condition both over carpets and rubber floor mats installed from new. The Rover radio/cassette adds to the retro Metro feel. It even smells like a new car having never been smoked in.
Engine and gearbox
All service work has been completed regardless of cost including cam belt new ECU and regular oil changes. The car has had a new radiator fitted two years age and there are no gasket problems. The close ratio 5 speed gearbox has had an oil change, is tight with nice positive change and the clutch feels positive. The car is lovely and quiet to drive returns good MPG and keeps up with modern traffic.
The five alloy wheels are in fantastic condition still fitted with the original spec P600 Pirelli tyres, including the spare which has never been fitted.
Having had such little use the brakes have been fitted with new rubbers, a fluid change and also new rear wheel cylinders. The original pads and shoes are still retained.
Thanks you for your interest but please note this is a very reluctant sale there are no offers or part-ex deals.
