Exceptional condition and a time warp Classic and Rare – possibly the only MetroKnightsbridge1.3 3-door Metro Mk2 model in the UK now. Rare for 3 reasons: 1)This is a METRO badged model – not an Austin or Rover – only made with this badge for 1 year. 2) It’s aKnightsbridgemodel. 3) It’s also the larger 1300cc/1275 engine with carburator. Supplied to Austin Dealer in Jersey in 1989 but not sold or registered then brought back to UK in 1991 by Rover Group for sale – hence registered as 1991 model.
Waxoiled chassis since new and never welded with no corrosion and no damage inside or out. Showing 21,217 miles but cannot fully verify as history lost with last keeper. Current physical and driving condition, including original factory paint marks on components along with old MOT’s and low number of keepers (1st keepers family for 16 years and another keeper for 8 years) appear to verify this as correct.
Alloy wheels are genuine MG Metro Turbo ones which have been mirror polished and powdercoated and fitted with 4 x new tyres at substantial cost. Recent full service, full exhaust system.replaced and hydrogas suspension regassed. CD player, OEM rubber dash mat and factory sunroof fitted.
One niggle - one of the previous owners removed the seats and replaced with beige GTI ones (common in the 2000's) - the last owner ovtained a set in matching black fabric (car is blue) and bought matching blue seat covers to put on top. As we have never used the car and it does not detract in any way from the full enjoyment or appearance of the vehicle we have not bothered sourcing another set. They will neither increase or decrease it's condition or value.
The 4 x original Metric wheels and factory supplied radio cassette radio are also included.
MOT until Sept 2020 - only done around 10 miles since last mot as we have a number of other classics too.
