Moving a Metro

1990 MG Rover Metro with just 1,707 miles on the clock for sale for a pretty penny


Offered by East Lancashire Classics at their garage and on eBay also, a 1990 MG Rover Metro comes in “showroom fresh” condition and just 1,707 miles on the clock.


The immaculate 1990 Rover MG Metro on offer
The car has covered just 1,707 miles in 26 years; that’s the equivalent of just 66 miles per year


Described as “original and unmolested” and a relative bargain –compared to the 1989 Peugeot 205 GTi we recently featured (guide price: £18,000 to £22,000, sold for £31,000) – at just £12,995, the 26-year old MG Metro was purchased by an “avid car enthusiast and collector as a gift to his wife” on 1st May 1990. On sight, she is said to have remarked: “I’m not driving a Metro” and thus the vehicle was consigned to storage and occasional outings.


After covering just 632 miles with its original owner, the MG Metro –which comes complete with its original exhaust and metric sized tyres – was loaned to the North Yorkshire Car Museum in Thornton-Le-Dale until 2012. It was sold on then and is offered again “un-messed with, unrestored, untouched and just as it left the dealership”.


The front seats are in “as new condition”
The rear seats look as if they’ve never been used also
Even the original MG mats remain in perfect condition
And there’s even a set of MG gloves in the boot
A Philips sticker is a reminder of something often seen on cars in the 1990s
From the front
And finally from the rear
