1996 Rover Mini Equinox



1996 Rover Mini Equinox

The vendor has kindly supplied the following information.

The Mini’s 60th Anniversary in 2019 is a great opportunity to invest in a Classic Mini.

This Mini Equinox is ready to go. It has a low mileage, having covered less than 4,000 miles a year since new (average annual mileage is 12,000 a year).

One of 750 produced, of which only 195 are still licensed in the UK; and one of only 250 manufactured in Charcoal Grey Metallic.

This classic Rover Mini was first registered on 29 August 1996 to Mrs Partridge of Lawley. The present owner acquired the Mini on 19 November 2009.

The Equinox Limited Edition benefited from a  number of improvements to the Mini range introduced in 1994 and 1995, including single-point fuel injection; rear inertia-reel seat belts; radio-cassette with removable front panel; remote-activated alarm/immobiliser; chrome locks, door handles and boot release; as well as other special Equinox trim features.

This particular car also has a set of 4 fog and spot lights as well as foot mats to all passenger foot wells.

It has clearly been cared for to a high standard throughout its life. This is evidenced by a full service history documented in the official MG Rover Group Service History record books, which are backed up by numerous invoices during the current and immediate previous keepers’ ownership.

In the last 12 months, this Mini has benefited from a comprehensive programme of refurbishment, all of which is documented with appropriate invoices. This work included:

  • New door skins to both doors
  • New O/S door lower inner panel
  • New window drop glass guides
  • New radio aerial
  • Two new rear tyres
  • New fuel pump
  • New battery
  • New catalytic converter and lambda sensor
  • New rear sub frames and bushes
  • New front lower joints
  • New front O/S tie rod bush
  • New handbrake cable

The Mini is presented with:

  • 2 sets of keys
  • Original Owner Handbook
  • Original Rover dealer’s key fob
  • Original sales brochure
  • Current V5C document
  • MOT Certificate valid until 24 October 2019

A comprehensive history file with invoices and DVLA record of MOT tests since 2006.
