Leyland mini, 1978 1380 cc motor ??

Reliable, very zippy, runs well, and is loads of fun to drive – especially by those who know how to drive a 34 year old mini. It’s Monza red with a white roof, and sunroof.
A real head turner. Great on fuel (premium 95).

Motorway speed is 90-100km. Pay your money and drive away.

I’ve had this much loved mini since 2004. I drove it every day whilst living in Wellington, however now I’m in Christchurch it’s not getting the use it should be. It has been serviced regularly since I’ve had it, always registered and warranted. I’ve recently put new plates on it as I had personalised plates removed in readiness to sell. It has had the registration JD3194 etched onto the windows by a previous owner.

• It has a statement of compliance (and compliance plate) under the low volume vehicle code. Modifications have been certified and are as follows:
o Wide wheels & tyres and flares (Tyres are Falken FK07E 165/70x10)
o Japanese front seats
• The certification of registration states that the cc rating is 1098, however I am assured that the engine is a 1380 cc.
• Stromberg Carburettor, free flow exhaust, 10 month old battery.
• Odometer reading at last warrant was 68728kms. Who knows what engine/speedo this relates to.

One bubble of rust on the bonnet which has not gotten worse in the 9 years I’ve had it (see picture). Some other nicks in the paintwork, but generally it’s very tidy.

It needs some minor things fixed inside, e.g. window winder handle, door handle, door light – but nothing major. The heater works, and there is a working rear window heater. It comes with a state of the art tape cassette player and radio, and Kenwood speakers. Carpets are good.

Clutch, gearbox, and drum brakes are in good working order.

If you are genuinely interested, please contact me to arrange an appointment to inspect. I had it valued last year so know that it’s worth keeping rather than giving away.

No buy now price.

Happy bidding.
