Spec: Metallic Blue, 3 Door Hatchback, Petrol, Manual (4 gears), 988cc, Factory-fitted sunroof, Current Mileage: 45392 miles
Just had an MOT (expires: 15th July 2014) and has had two new front tyres and brake pads fitted. In the past couple of years it's had a new exhaust, and the water pump and cam-belt were replaced last December. The bodywork is in good condition with just few marks as would be expected for a car of this age.
It’s super to drive and I would love to keep this car, but I need a larger car with a bigger boot area to carry my hockey goalkeeping kit bag. It's with a heavy heart that I have decided to sell this car which has been in our family since new. The original bill of sale shows that it was bought new from Toneway Motor Ltd, Taunton for £5430 by my Grandfather. He passed it on to me 2 years ago when motoring became too much for him, so I have full knowledge of its history. It has never been involved in any accidents and has never been welded.
My Grandfather kept all original documentation including the bill of sale from 1989, and the cars operation manual, which may have seen better days with some dog-eared corners and writing inside. However, the car has no rust mostly due to the fact it was kept in a garage for most of its life. The cars 1989 original interior is in excellent condition with no modifications and includes the original Factory fit AM Radio, that still works, and the original Nissan rubber mats.
Under my ownership the car has run faultlessly, and has been maintained regardless of cost. However, a new head gasket is required and I am selling without this repair as I really need a larger car now. It would be such a shame to accept just £100 for its scrap value as it is in amazing condition and is still a runner. A Micra enthusiast would be able to sort this out without too much trouble and continue to enjoy this very original car. It has been well looked after all these years, and will give pleasure for many more years to come, especially as this car can be maintained at home with basic tools (no electronic management systems!).
This car is a pretty good example of a Nissan Micra K10 with low mileage and has survived remarkably well for its age. I have attempted to show the good condition of this car in the photos and hope they do the car justice.
