1988 Metro Vanden Plas auto 30,000 Full MOT & serviced For Sale
I am selling the rare and increasingly sought after metro Vanden Plas Auto with just under 30,000 miles.
I have spend around £2500 on the car since purchase, improving the engine and all of the other mechanicals- it is now fully converted to run on unleaded. The overhaul details can be seen by viewing the recent MOT's and I can provide more info on request.
It's been in storage for a few years but is at last back on the road, having had all the work done by a mini & metro specialist including underbody Waxoyl.
I have secured 'new old' stock metric tyres and the car comes with 4 more 'new old' stock tyres so you can use the standard wheels for years to come!! These tyres are like hens teeth so this really is a major advantage to buying this car.
Although mechanically, the car is running like a dream, a few things need to be looked at to get the car finished.
1) Mechanically polish the car
2) Replace the headlining
3) Some of the front door fabric needs gluing onto the door cards
4) Re attach side rubbing strips and VDP badges (which come with the car).
I am not desperate to sell so am not open to offers- I have priced it to sell considering the work put in and increasing rarity of the car.
