A lot of us would love to have an original Mini, especially in right-hand drive. But often we're not willing to give up creature comforts. That's what makes this 1990 Rover Mini Checkers so appealing. It has the cool classic looks, but with nice conveniences like an automatic transmission and air conditioning.
We know you love the look of these original Minis. The shape is unmistakable, and you can't help but smile at this icon. And this one was built to really maximize its status. The Checkers edition has the look of the Mini Coopers with the Hella lights up front and Minilite wheels. Plus, the white hood (bonnet) stripes and white roof look cool against the black paint. The same attractiveness goes for the full-length red and white pinstripe that ends in the special Checkers graphic. So the total look really pays a nice tribute to the rugged little Rally machines that were giant killers on the circuit.
Part of what made the Mini so revolutionary was that despite its diminutive size, pushing the wheels to corners meant four people could genuinely fit inside. But while those roots are utilitarian, this later one received all the best factory upgrades to give it a level of comfort that the early ones could only dream about. The stylish high-back bucket seats up front are finished in a cool and colorful cloth pattern. It's a true British icon, so even though this is a Japanese-spec model, people will be happy to see you arrive with the driver on the right. But will really make you fall in love are the modern features. This includes the full gauge package w/tach, AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth, and A/C. Yes, you really can have cold air conditioning in an original Mini!
Under the hood is the correct 998cc four-cylinder engine. This A-Series motor is a well-known and widely used powerplant that found a home in plenty of British vehicles, which makes parts availability quite easy. In fact, ease is a central theme to this Mini. It has nice driving features like the rarely-seen four-speed automatic transmission. Plus, you have power brakes w/discs up front and steering that is so exact it feels telepathic. So it's one of the nimblest classics you'll ever find.
We already seldom see original Minis, so an exceptional one like this may never be available again. Call today!!!
