The Appeal 

What Austin Rover started enthusiasts have been completing and personalising ever since. We’re talking about the Mini, a car that even the factory couldn’t resist making better and better. 
This is the ethos of this handsome 1992 MkVI Cooper 1.3i. A £5,000 professional restoration in late 2019 brings us a lightly cosmetically modified car that runs some choice Mini Sport engine, braking and suspension modifications. Inside the interior is neatly trimmed and specified to match the other improvements.
A thick history file documents this work together with more recent investment to keep on top of the condition and maintenance. Clearly much-loved and equipped with a long MOT to March 2025, this is a very tasteful Cooper that will looks a delight to drive.
