Restored Pastel Pink 1996 Classic Rover Mini Sprite 1300cc SPI 53bhp - Matching Numbers


Finished in Pastel Pink (never a factory option), she’s unique.


Driving beautifully, her very sought after, factory original and matching numbers 1275cc 53bhp single point injection engine accelerates with great soul and she handles excitedly. Such engine is sought after for matching higher performance capacity with reliability, replacing old fashioned and unreliable carburettor technology with modern fuel injection technology and an automatic choke. Being fully reconditioned 3000 miles ago, her gearbox is tort.

She has been significantly restored mechanically and aesthetically, both outside and inside and such restoration included the following:

1. Mechanical Restoration

First she was fully serviced which included new Millers Classic Mini Oil, Oil Filter, HT leads and spark plugs. Next, she had a new Electronic Ignition (increasing reliable), a New Oxygen Sensor and she was professionally set up by a tuning specialist to optimise her performance. Finally, she was fitted with four brand new tyres, her rear brakes were rebuilt with new components and she had new track rod ends. This was everything she needed and she then passed a recent MOT with no advisories.

2. Aesthetic Restoration

Outside she has four brand new iconic Revolution Alloy Wheels and new chrome-work including 1960’s Cooper style over-rider bumpers, grill and Spotlights. Inside she has one of the most sought after interiors, sought after for its history, quality and comfortability; the late Cooper Lightening Interior (£500-1000). She also has a new headlining, alloy door handles replacing the standard plastic handles and a new dash, fitted with a USB radio. She has both opening rear windows and rear seat belts as optional extras which are important. Her private registration is included in the sale.
Having recently had a new subframe, new inner and outer sills and new floors, she is solid underneath. She also had a performance exhaust which gives her a more classically exciting roar (albeit it still quite conservative).

Otherwise, being a later upgraded model she has an alarm and immobiliser as standard and a catalytic converter, making her greener.

She has five previous keepers, a huge history folder spanning 20 years and has never been involved in an accident.

Condition Report

The only thing to mention is around the bottom edge of her windscreen she some of the usual classic Mini tiny bubbles which if you wanted to make her perfect would cost around £300 to repair, however most classic Mini’s have these small bubbles. Her grill spotlights aren't currently wired up, but such could be easily done :).

  • We guarantee that your Mini will be mechanically perfect at the time of the sale. Mechanically perfect means that your Mini will be roadworthy with a recent MOT, that everything on your Mini will work correctly and that your Mini will be ready to enjoy.


    However, it is important to note that Mini's are classic cars opposed to brand new cars, classic cars will have wear and tear on all parts opposed to being built to a new standard and accordingly they  will require ongoing maintenance and we cannot be held liable for any ongoing maintenance after the time of the sale. That being said, we have a dedicated phone line to assist you in maintaining your Mini and sourcing replacement parts.
