It is very clean inside and out, nd runs great. Recently serviced, eplaced fluids, lutch slave cylinder, alve cover gasket, ubber seals, ndbraided clutch hose. It has the 1275 MPI engine with factory2.76:1 final drive ratio which drops highway cruising at 70mph to 3300rpms (Previous Mini's cruised at 3900rpms at 70mph roughly). Factory 8.4" brakes with Brake Booster, s well as 13x6 Sportpack wheels.

A lot of Classic Mini's try to copy the look of the Sportpack Mini, his is not a copy, ut the real deal!So what makes a SportPack Different than other Classic Mini's?Engine & Mechanics-1275 multi-point fuel injection-Modern Wiring & Fuses - no cheap in-line fuses to fall apart.-Oil Filter moved up and to the front of the engine eliminating oil pipes and reducing leaks!-Quad dry-coil twin-spark technology. Distributor deleted in favour of the modern distributor less electronic management.-Front mounted radiator with electric fan only - quieter, ore efficient, an doesn't need to run when you're on the move.-65 amp alternator with modern poly-vee belt alternator/water pump drive for greater durability and reliability.-Much improved torque curve has enabled the introduction of a higher final-drive ratio for more relaxed cruising at motorway speeds.-For lower internal noise levels, 2.76:1 final drive ratio raises the overall gearing by 16% compared to the previous Mini Cooper. With fourth gear now equivalent to fifth gear on many other cars and a third gear high enough to virtually achieve the 90mph maximum speed, he driving characteristics are very different. The 'overdrive' fourth gear cuts engine speed at 70mph from 3,888 rpm to 3,333 rpm for more comfortable cruising, hile third gear now provides the upper range acceleration and overtaking capability.-Rear exhaust silencer box which together with the other modifications to the engine make it TWICE as quiet at 70mph!Interior-Fantastic twin post seats inBeige Leather with Plaid inserts, hese seats have a sporty look and great bolster!-LHD, agnolia Guages-Aftermarket Headunit-White Headliner and sunvisors-Door mounted side impact beams in the front doors (Inside door, actory safety item, s well as airbag steering wheel)-Electric headlamp leveling switch-Column stalks including intermittent wipers, rogrammed wash-wipe and the light switch-Alloy throttle pedal-Fully molded carpet with factory soundproofing under it-Factory Remote control alarm & immobiliser with passive arming-2 speed heater-Pre-tensioned front seatbeltsExterior-Electrically height adjustable headlights - Wipac Quadoptic halogen headlights as standard fitment - superb lights, specially when combined with the new alternator and the relays fitted on this model over the previous spi car.-Clear front indicators.-Standard Towing Eyes under the front bumper.-Sportpack Arches-Sportpack 13x6 Wheels with 175/50/13 tires-Factory Roof-mounted aerial-4 FoglightsFOR MORE INFORMATION:If genuinelyinterested, lease feel free to call me at 703-216-0921for more information or email me at mcgeescustomminis@gmail.com <
