This fabulous fun Nissan Micra Suntop is a stunningly original and preserved example finished in bright Polar White, (Code 531). The paint finish has a deep shine and contrasts against the black electric canvas top beautifully. The colour keyed radiator grille, wrap around bumpers and all trim is unmarked. The tinted glass is number plate etched with the side window still displaying the ‘OK’ sticker. The side pinstripe is perfect and the feature canvas roof has no marks, rips or tears. All structural integrity is assured thanks to the low mileage and indoor storage from new. Rare, retro and resplendent.
Truly astonishing and virtually perfect in condition and function. The Moquette Brown seat trim blends with the period brown theme extending to the steering wheel, door furniture, carpets, dash and even front and rear seatbelts! The roof lining is perfect with no water stains and the carpets have been protected by Nissan carpet mats finished naturally in, you guessed it, brown! Comfort is assured with soft plump seating and adjustable headrests and clever features such as the passenger seat memory function are useful. The original functioning Clarion radio cassette player is still in situ and all other controls work including the ‘one-touch’ electric Suntop roof. The boot area looks virtually unused with a full bagged tool kit. This really is smashing.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fuel economy and reliability are assured with this clean burn light alloy engine which were the most powerful in their class when new. With 60bhp, a top speed of nearly 100mph is possible and 0-60mph achieved in under 12 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 intact. The chassis number on the bulkhead is clearly visible and even the white script service instructions on the metal air filter are vibrant. The 5-speed gearbox is slick, precise and an absolute joy to use.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Unmarked Minilight JBW polished alloy wheels measuring 14in have replaced the factory steel and wheel trims which are included in the sale for those seeking 100% originality. Branded tyres have ample tread and the power assisted braking system with front disc brakes do an admirable job of stopping this car quickly and safely.

Very difficult to find better and such great reliable fun!
