Just 14,000 miles from new!

Vehicle Description
A lovely original Mk1 Austin Metro 1.3 HLE with only 14,000 miles from new.

Supplied new by Lookers of Rochdale, this 1983 Austin Metro HLE has been preserved in superb original condition and now for sale with ourselves just 14,000 miles later. A delightful car for collectors or enthusiasts alike.

Finished in Cinnabar Red, this little Metro has been truly cherished by its 5 former keepers and remains today in its original paint. The car has clearly been stored well throughout its journey with all trim, lights, glass and rubbers presenting in excellent condition. There are a number of age-related marks which have been touched in throughout the years; but we feel it is up to the new custodian to decide whether these imperfections be corrected or not. The underside is in excellent condition, having been protected by Protetcol from new and maintained throughout.

The interior is in a time-warp condition, with the seats finished in HLE spec Savannah Marle Fabric with Savannah Vinyl door cards and brown carpets. The interior has been preserved to a remarkable condition, having genuine Metro rubber floormats protecting the carpets in the front. The headlining is clean with no tears and all electrical functions are in working order.

Fitted from factory with the larger 1275cc A+ engine and 4 speed manual box, the Metro is a joy to drive and keeps up with modern day traffic. The car has been maintained regularly with everything running as it should and accompanying MOT cards, dating back to 2000.

The Hydragas suspension delivers exceptional ride and handling and feels as it should with no creaks or knocking. With front disc brakes, stopping is effective, adding to the drivability of the Metro. The front and rear brakes have been serviced recently and are in perfect working order.

This wonderful metro, once a common site on our roads, is yearning for its next custodian. So, if this sounds and looks like the classic for you, a trip to our showroom is well worth the visit. Our coffee pot is always hot.
