Very regretted sale of my Rover Classic Mini Cooper manual transmission 35th anniversary edition. Cherished and garaged in London. Just sailed through its MOT.

N105UHO was featured in "Classic and Sports Car Magazine" and the "Mini Scrapbook: 60 years of a British icon". The car is rust free, never welded, and has been obsessively maintained. Drives superbly with only 60K miles/ 96K kilometers on the clock, with an agreed insurance value well above its asking price. If you're looking for the most desirable Classic Mini Cooper for today's roads, without the price tag of the David Brown Remastered Mini, the 35 Limited Edition is the one. (More on why at the bottom of this listing)

Features for N105UHO listed below:

1) Factory Almond green paint with Porcelain green leather seats and interior. No hidden rust or problems anywhere. Car has been sealed/ protected since day 1.

2) John Cooper logo "Smiths" dash top gauges with genuine Mini logo on radio cassette receiver.

3) I've retained the black grill, HKS centre exit exhaust, K&N filter, floor anti-roll bar, heavy duty suspension etc.

4) Genuine and ultra rare Minilite Magnesium 12" deep dish wheels on Dunlop Le Mans rubber.

5) Rover factory installed air-conditioning works perfectly.

N105 UHO routinely delivers over 40 mpg, the single point injection motor is in a very healthy state of tune and the car has been exclusively maintained and cared for by Croydon Minis, specialists with an excellent reputation. Comes with its original documents, sales brochures, service history, copies of the publications etc.

NO TIME WASTERS under any circumstances. If you aren't certain you want a Classic Mini Cooper, please look elsewhere. You can buy a project car for a few thousand less but you'll undoubtedly spend much more to get it sorted.

Payment must be cleared, confirmed in bank account before any DVLA paperwork will be transferred. Scammers, you've been warned!

Why buy a Mini Cooper 35LE?

When I started looking for my Mini Cooper, I did substantial research on the correct variant keeping that charm, ease of ownership and comfort in mind. Your research will also lead to the fact that the Single Point Injection system remains the best balance of reliability and performance. Yes, the Twin injection system that released in 1997 makes 10% more power, but the overall quality of Rover cars dropped drastically after BMW stopped investing in brand in 1997 (rust issues notably more prominent, passing MOTs is harder due to emissions etc.) which is why a 1996 car is the one to get. The 35 LE steals the show because of its colours inside and out and the comfortable leather seats. If you can't find a manual transmission 35LE, wait a bit, but do not get the Automatic. Parts are unavailable and they blunt the car beyond recognition.

Why a Japanese 35 LE?

Your research will highlight that the single biggest issue with any Classic Mini Cooper is rust. Owners have spent several thousands trying to get their supposed "rust free" cars sorted after rust was hidden or worse, improperly repaired. If it is a UK car, and you cannot verify that it was garage kept every year of its 25 year life, then I would recommend a thorough examination by a specialist. The only way to be sure is to purchase a vehicle from a warmer, dryer climate. Fortunately, Japanese cars lived in this favourable climate and have been meticulously cared for by their owners due to the Japanese "Shaken" MOT test, where a failure means cars are taken off their roads. An added bonus is that Japanese 35 LE cars come with factory installed air-conditioning and tinted glass, which has been a Godsend over our 5 summers of ownership.
