1989 Austin Mini, modified, carbon, elec. ignition For Sale
1989 Austin Mini
Very large history and receipts file lots of money spent. Uprated and improved in almost every way from the original Austin Mini City E (full list of modifications below). This car is a thrill to drive and has carbon fibre bodywork that costs £3k new and is always admired.
Drives extremely well with all-round adjustable suspension, disc front brakes with servo, and 165/70 R10 semi-slick tyres, all uprated and in great condition. Enlarged, tuned and developed engine pulls strong with plenty of torque and starts every time with the Megajolt electronic ignition (complete with computer programmability for timing and power curve).
Lighter, stronger (and never going to rust) bodywork with full genuine carbon fibre flip front end, bootlid, and front and rear wheel arches.
Structurally solid and rust free with only minor bodywork imperfections as expected with a mini this age.. If you have owned classic minis before, this is even more of an experience to drive with the noise from the straight cut gears and the seemingly limitless grip. If you have not, do not expect refinement but do expect fun at legal speeds!
