1981 Austin mini Metro 1.0 total restoration OUTSTANDING! For Sale

A nut-and-bolt restored base Mini Metro with just 3 previous owners and 19, 500 miles.

First registered on the 9th June 1981 to a Mr Arnold of High Wycombe by Henlys of West London and just three owners since. This example is believed to be the only usable Applejack Green Metro in existence and has been sympathetically restored by the current owner since 2018 using OEM parts wherever possible – every inch of this vehicle has been carefully repaired, replaced, painted or polished as required resulting in what must be one of the best Mk1 Metros left in the world. When purchased the Metro was in good, usable condition with low mileage (19, 000 miles) but has been taken to the next level with piles of invoices to prove the estimated £20k spent to get the car to this standard. We have some old MOTs and the car will be MOTed for the new owner, despite being exempt.

Applejack Green with Savannah trim, push-button radio with one facia mounted speaker, reversing light, two rear guard lamps, inertia reel seatbelts, telescopic aerial with BL branded raising tool, Metro branded mudflaps, Metro branded front rubber floor mats. This base model is more notable for what is doesn’t have – no rear wiper, wind-up windows, no central locking, no power steering, 4-speed gearbox, no passenger wing mirror.

Perfect paint all-round, original wheel-trims in perfect condition as are the steel-wheels, Michelin XZX tyres all-round, lovely interior, superb in the boot and perfect under the bonnet. Complete with the original Henlys rear window sticker. This is a beautiful, freshly restored and rare example that drives perfectly and needs nothing to enjoy. Comes with the original book-pack, keys and the car is road tax and MOT exempt
