1978 Mini Classic Mini

Mini Cooper by Rover 1.3 liter (1275cc) fuel injected 4 cyl. Titled as 1978 historical vehicle yet assembled in the US in Feb. 1999, with shoulder belts and A/C blows cooled air, for export to Japan with right hand drive and everything metric including odometer currently at 134451km (83,543 miles). This Mini was built by Rover in the UK as the last production model of the true Mini. These end of production, Rover built Minis, retained the classic small packaging but are also upgraded with a 1275 CC inline 4 cylinder engine fed via fule injection and managed with electronic ignition. The engines performance is transferred via a 4 speed gear box and applied by front wheel drive technology. This little Mini has a huge fun factor as the unassisted steering is direct and full of feedback, while the wheel-at-each corner stance and firm suspension give it outstanding agility and handling; the familiar whine of the 4 speed gearbox and tuneful exhaust enhances the overall motoring experience. Built between 1998 and 2000, they encompass the same lovable character that made the original 1961 such a smashing hit. For this reason, these cars are collectible and are considered investments. In this case, size truly does not matter. Blue with white top. This is fun car to drive and always gets attention wherever it goes including people who hang out their car windows to moving pictures.
