1986 Austinís Metro 1.3L 3 Door 16000 miles For Sale

1986 (D) Austin Metro 1.3L 3 Door Hatchback 16000 miles from new! Very well looked after 100 % solid and original, please read. very hard to find 1275cc 3 door non sunroof model so an ideal base for retro tuning. This is a very rare find that I acquired in 2014 when I went to view a mini. I saw this Metro in the corner of an old tyre fitting centre. I was amazed to find that it had only covered Just over 16 thousand miles and was in the hands of the solicitors who were dealing with the assets of the owner that had unfortunately past away. I left my details with the chap and a few weeks later I had a call and they offered it to me. A price was agreed and I had the metro collected. It started on the button and drove to the MOT station where is was tested and passed with no advisories! Since 2015 the Metro has been in storage until recently when I drove it into the workshop and went through everything. The front wings and front panel were bubbling and when I took the paint back the metal was thin so I managed to source a genuine right hand wing from Surrey, A genuine left hand wing from Greece and I bought 4 genuine from panels from Kent of which one was used on this Metro. So I replaced those panels and had them painted as well as some other areas tidied up. I fully serviced the car including, Oil, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs, dizzy cap and rotor arm, HT leads, brake fluid and coolant. As well as this I replaced the radiator, coolant hoses and the carburettor rebuilt. I only use Genuine or OEM parts! The hydrolastic suspension fluid was drained and replaced ( set to the correct standard height ) Everything the car came out of the dealership ( Lesters Garages ltd in Trowbridge) with is all there, original radio, hub caps etc. I am in the process of having the service history verified as the original books were lost when the previous owners house was cleared after he passed away however I have been on the ball chasing up the history and I have a brand new set of books etc for the car that I have been filling out as I find out the relevant information. I was very lucky to track down an old employee of Lesters Garages ltd who verified the early days when the car was sold to an elderly lady new however the car was registered to the garage so that covers one owner as well. The car was then sold on to a collector who put the car in storage, occasionally bringing it out for maintenance and an MOT. This all ended when the owner separated with his partner and therefore his assets went up for sale. The little Metro then went to a local mini/ ford specialist in Devon who then sold it to the previous owner who was a local driving instructor and very keen Leyland enthusiast. He maintained it and used it occasionally up until his passing in 2014. so thats a brief history of the car. Now the condition is brilliant, other than the new wings and front panel everything is 100 % original! the Hub caps have some light scratches but no curb marks. The interior has no stains etc, what you would expect of a 16000 mile car. options include, side bump strips ( I did think of having these removed but I was reminded that its a fantastic period dealer fit item that we just don't see anymore) its been wax oiled regularly since new. has its original Metric Michelin tyres, unit part brakes - everything! And best of all it all works as it should! I will get it a fresh MOT for the buyer as well as having the car valet again. anymore pictures/ Video or information please get in touch and I will be happy to help Viewings are welcome and advised, by appointment only.
