This DreamCar will stay with its owner for a little longer, thanks to the seller and all the bidders


DreamCarXchange is pleased to offer this 1988 Mini Jet-Black Edition.  This example is a limited run of 3,000 Jet Black Edition Minis with Black interior with Red piping and accents.  The Right Hand Drive (RHD) car was imported from Japan in December 2018 and has received a service since then.  It currently shows 68,105 kilometers (approximately 42k miles) and is being sold with a clean New Jersey title.


The Jet Black Edition comes with unique features such as “Jet Black” logos on the exterior along with the embroidered upholstery.


It is powered by a 998cc carbureted four cylinder engine rated at 42 hp and 49 lb-ft of torque, and mated to a 4-speed manual transmission.


The interior features black upholstery with black piping, “Jet Black” embroidery on the seats, red “Mini” mats, red seat belts and wood trim.  


This example features modifications that include 10″ Cosmic wheels mounted on Yokohama ADVAN-032R tires sized 165/70, an aftermarket exhaust with polished tips, Personal steering wheel, and a Panasonic cassette player.


Currently this Mini shows 68,105 kilometers or approximately 42k miles.


The car comes with import papers from Japan.  The last service was an oil & filter change, along with the replacement of all of the fluids in early 2019.  The lug nuts and brake master cylinder were also replaced at that time.  Make sure you check out the additional pictures (including pics of the undercarriage) found in the “Pictures” tab above.  The selling dealer is charging $0.00 for documentation or other fees.  Good luck with your bidding!

Agreed – of all of the Rover Mini Editions, you just don’t come across a Jet-Black edition (or Rio for that matter), very often.

This 1988 Rover Mini is said to be one of 3,000 Jet Black editions produced. Power comes from a 998cc inline-four paired with a four-speed manual transaxle. Modifications consist of 10″ Cosmic wheels, an upgraded exhaust, Personal steering wheel, and a Panasonic cassette player. This example is equipped with factory air conditioning, which is in perfect working order. The Jet-Black Edition is set apart by a red pinstripe running along the sides and rear, while Jet Black script is found on both rear fenders and the trunk lid as pictured above. An aftermarket exhaust features twin polished tips, recent paint correction. 10″ Cosmic wheels are mounted with S-compound 165/70 Yokohama ADVAN-032R tires. The lug nuts and brake master cylinder were recently replaced, please see closeup pictures of each corner in the gallery. The seats are upholstered in black velour with red piping and Jet Balck embroidery on the backrests. Red seat belts and wood trim provide further contrast. A two-spoke Personal steering wheel and Panasonic AM/FM cassette player were installed by a previous owner. The steering rack and all three pedals were replaced. A shift kit and new shift rod seal were also fitted. Images are included in the gallery.

Got something to discuss?
