The vendor has owned this Rover Mini Sprite for 12 years, during which time she reports that it has been regularly maintained and cherished. However, it is now being sold as it is no longer regularly used. The Rover was registered in December 1992 and has an MoT valid to August 2024. Its odometer shows just over 82,000 miles. The vendor describes the Mini as running and driving well, and reliable with no issues. In 2013 it had panels replaced and major rust work undertaken; in 2018 there was further minor rust work and two new doors. It has only covered approximately 1000 miles since May 2019; for the rest of the time, it has otherwise been sitting in a garage with a trickle charger attached. It was last serviced in June 2022 but has hardly been driven since. 

Included with the Rover is its V5C, invoices from 2023 back to 2001, MoTs back to 2001, a collection of rally and show plaques, and spare keys.

In January 2002, the Mini was a Category C Insurance Loss; Vehicle Extensively Damaged But Repairable, Insurer Decided Not To Repair. In 2003, its colour was changed from gold and white to the curent green and white.
