1990 Mini Classic Mini Additional Info:

Up for sale is my personal 1990 Right Hand Drive (RHD) Mini Cooper. Actual Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is 99XA113701AR. Ebay doesn't like non-17 digit VIN's and since this is a RHD vehicle, it does not have a 17 digit VIN. It was imported under the 25 year rule from Japan which means it is 100% legal for use and is legal to register/title in the United States (California has its own rules and can not be registered there). It is currently registered and titled in Texas with a clear Texas title. I have owned the vehicle for about 1.5 years and it has been a great daily driver/commuter car. On average I would put approximately 850 miles a month on it.

It will cruise at 65-75 mph on the freeway with no problem while having the ice cold air-conditioning on, yes, the factory A/C works great even in the summer 100 degree Texas heat with zero issues.

The Mini has the 998cc engine with the carburetor and automatic transmission. Do not let carbs scare you, this one has the working manual choke. Pull it in the ready position and the mini fires right up. Once warmed up push the choke back in and it drives great, just like any old school carb era car. It has disc brakes up front and drums in the rear.

The color of the mini is a Gray/Silver metallic which looks in amazing condition for the vehicles age. It still has a very nice shine to it and has the optional checkered board roof decal (black top with the white vinyl checkers) and the optional hood black racing stripes. Its a head tuner where ever we go with it. The interior consists of black seats and panels with red carpet. Again the interior is in great shape for the vehicles age.

Currently the Mini Cooper has an original 75,012 Kilometers which is approximately 46,610 miles. Please note, I do drive the vehicle and it is available locally so the milage may go up while it is listed. I have done its regular oil changes and changed the sparks plugs. Other than that, it has not needed any items since I've owned it. Ive included a Pro’s and Cons list. It is a 27 year old vehicle and it does have some minor blemishes.
