In 1995 there were over 684,000 Austin Metros licensed for road use in the UK but, according to the web site, How Many Left, by the end of 2018 this number had dropped to only 316.
This example, a 1981 Metro Mkl 1.0 HLE, was registered new in June 1981 and bought by a vicar that owned it for only two years. It was then bought by a local Leyland garage who sold it within one day to a gentleman who owned it over 35 years until his death.
The paperwork shows that this owner took it off the road around 1987 and it appears to have been in storage since then as it has needed to be fitted with new alloy wheels and tyres, a new battery, fuel pump, water pump and radiator to get the car mobile. When we acquired it we presented it for an MOT and after fitting a pair of new steering rack rubber gaiters, it passed without a problem.
The history file contains the current V5 Registration Document, the current MOT which runs until June 2020, the clear HPI report, an copy of a previous V5 log book, the original Service Book, a couple of old road tax discs, the previous MOT which expired in 1987 and some recent invoices.
The current mileage reading is 82281 miles and this car is likely to be an excellent investment.
