A retro super dependable Nissan Micra 1.0 Premium with only 33,846 miles.
Driver’s door mirror, folding rear seats, rear seat belts, opening rear side windows, electronic tune radio, lockable glove box, ‘lights-on’ warning, 3-speed heater fan, heated rear window, cigar lighter, leatherette boot mat. Dealer accessories; Nissan rear mud flaps, tailored Nissan rubber floor mats.
This fabulously frugal yet fun Nissan Micra epitomizes everything it was designed for, simplicity and basic economy motoring from a bygone era when even a passenger door mirror and rear wiper were a luxury! Finished in factory bright Polar White, (Code 531), the paint finish looks superb with a bright uniform shine. Light age-related markings and touched in scratches and chips are visible only upon close scrutiny and spoil none of this cars unmolested appeal and low mileage loveliness. The slightly faded colour keyed radiator grille, wrap around bumpers and all trim is largely unmarked and all glass is factory fitment even displaying the ‘OK Nissan’ sticker. The double side coachline and Micra Premium decals are fully intact. Further originality is affirmed with the original supplying dealer plates from our very own local (at the time) AFG Nissan of Peterborough. Resplendently retro.
Truly astonishing and virtually perfect in condition and function. The Beige seat trim blends with the period brown theme extending to the steering wheel, door furniture, carpets, dash and even front and rear seatbelts! The light brown roof lining is as new and the carpets have been protected by Nissan rubber carpet mats. The original electronic tune radio player with generous single speaker powers on but no sound and all other controls work perfectly. The boot area looks virtually unused with a full bagged tool pouch and factory paint stamp marking on the spotless boot floor. This really is smashing.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Tremendous fuel economy and unfaltering reliability are assured with this clean burn light alloy engine. With 54bhp, a top speed of 90mph is possible and 0-62mph achieved in 15 seconds all while providing a huge grin thanks to the responsive characteristics of this incredible engine. The under-bonnet area is very clean with all stickers and bulkhead chassis number stamping intact. The 4-speed gearbox is light, precise and an absolute joy to use.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Factory fitted steel wheels with delightfully miniscule Micra chrome centre caps are in immaculate order and all branded tyres of size 155/70 R13 show plenty of tread. The spare wheel remains shod in the factory Dunlop tyre. The power assisted braking system with front disc brakes do an admirable job of stopping this car quickly and safely.
Registered new on the 22nd August 1991 by Nissan main dealers, AFG of Peterborough, this car has had just three keepers from new, all local to Peterborough, the home of KGF Classic Cars, and the previous two who are Father and Daughter. The first owner kept the car until 2005 at which time it was part exchanged to a local dealer. Mr Posnett promptly saw the car on their forecourt and fell in love with it, the car at this point having covered less than 5,000 miles. Mr Posnett has kept up annual servicing despite covering low mileage each year with invoices to verify, the most recent being carried out at less than 100 miles ago. The car has been owned ever since by Mr Posnett who in 2010 allowed his Daughter to use the car and decided to register it in her name just in case she gained any speeding tickets!
The handbook, spare keys and a large file of invoices and previous MOT certificates form the history file along with an original sales brochure. Very difficult to find better and such great reliable fun!
