The Appeal

Released in 1989, the Rover Mini 30 was designed to celebrate the Mini’s 30th anniversary. 

Finished in a choice of black or cherry red with gold pinstriping and a plethora of special badges and decals, the car limited to a 3,000-example run sets itself apart from other models on the road today.

This car is one of just a handful with a sunroof and presents itself in excellent condition.

Despite spending a good number of years off the road between 2006 to 2016, the current owner spent a lot of time and money making sure it was once again road worthy.

Extensive rust rust removal, repairs replacement panels & parts.
