A rare mk1 Arum White HLE model delivering 47bhp & offering economy over other models with a longer 4th gear & aerodynamic pack. Outstanding condition for a 36yr old early Metro, a credit to garaged care from its last owner for the last 30yrs! Every mot since the first in 86 has been kept to verify the mileage, along with the owners annual detailed record of what had been carried out on the car that year.
Purchased new in Oct 83 by an elderly lady called Doris, this little car was then traded in after just 3yrs & 2k miles & snapped up by Wendy from her local British Leyland dealer, Newmil garages of Balham. Aided by her husbands keen motoring interest, they maintained their pride & joy for 30yrs, having an annual service regardless of mileage. Having covered just 19k miles in this time, Wendy stopped driving in 2014 & parked the car up in the garage. I rescued it in Jan this year, setting out to recommision the car with bills totalling 840. The carb has been rebuilt, engine serviced, brakes overhauled & Hydrolastic suspension pumped up & refilled. The drivers side front wing & valence were also painted due to a bubble of rust around the aerial & some micro blisters. The boot floor has never been welded, indeed the underside & sills are solid, only the exhaust is starting to show its age but certainly isnt blowing. The gearbox & clutch are effortless making this Metro so easy to drive unlike many old cars
The interior is simply outstanding, the HLE's savannah Marle fabric & matching chocolate trim are spotless&!showing no wear at all, all trims & dashboard remain uncracked, even the super rare mk1 rear parcel shelf retains its shape & string supports. The original MW radio crackles into life & all buttons function as they were designed to.
I am only selling now as a 78 Mini 1000 project has taken over the garage space. The first to see will buy this lovely little car which has a deep lustre, wants for nothing, the 80's interior takes your breath away & starts first time, driving & handling superbly as Metros always did. Only 17 HLE's left on the road & its pampered life make it a better investment than a raced about MG version!
Mot'd until Feb 18, more detailed pictures available upon request
