Supplied new to Miss Carr by Mann Egerton, St Albans on 25th March 1987, finished in Shantung Gold with contrasting a Bitter Chocolate interior. Having only covered 9,000 miles from new the little metro is truly offered in time warp condition.
Much of the underpinnings were borrowed from the Mini, such as the venerable 46bhp A-series 998cc engine, drivetrain, gearbox and front sub-frame. The Metro also borrowed a modified version of the superb Hydragas suspension system found in the Allegro.
Evidently used sparingly, only covering 1,000 in the past 15 years. Starting promptly and running nicely this Metro was driven to our premises. Believed to be only 7 Austin Metro Mayfairs still registered on UK roads, this one must surely be among the best-preserved examples remaining. Appearing to be in totally original condition throughout, it retains all its original handbooks in the original Austin Rover wallet and original sales invoice. It starts on the button is ready to be used and enjoyed.
Estimated at £2,500 - £3,500
