Classic Auto Imports


1980/98 Mini Cooper
This 1980 Austin Morris Mini has a 1275cc. fuel injected engine and the entire car has been upgraded to a 1998 model. It has air conditioning, leather interior and automatic transmission. The car has only covered some 12,000 miles since new. It is almost showroom condition.

Why such low mileage? The car was manufactured in the UK for the Japanese market, hence the air conditioning, automatic transmission and the Kilometer on the clock. The car was (like the other Japanese models I have for sale) re-imported to the U.K. and when I found them, I had them imported to the U.S. as outstanding examples of the classic Mini.

Because of its excellent condition, I had to pay a premium price for this car. That's okay, because I believe it is important to purchase and sell only Minis that are in outstanding condition. These cars will give years of trouble-free driving and low running expenses. Buy with confidence an outstanding car.

I have never seen such original, magnificent conditions in a Mini as those which come via rust, low mileage, modern conveniences (CD and top radios) and leather interiors. It is an outstanding example of an original Mini and more desirable than BMW's new Mini and less expensive to operate, better mpg (40 mpg+) and more unique!
