1968 Morris Mini Cooper "S' Mk1

1968 Morris Mini Cooper "S' Mk1

This is a little gem with only two previous owners and is an original matching numbers car. .  She has a genuine 92,000 miles on the clock, and comes with all her original paperwork and books, including the original order form!  She is an Australian delivered car and not an import.

This is an unrestored car, but she has benefitted from a fresh repaint in her original colours, Snow White with a Burgundy roof.  Unfortunately, the engine compartment and interior metal work was not painted at the same time.   Exterior wise, she is absolutely stunning.

Mechanically she is really good, and the 1275cc motor was rebuilt at 90,404 miles.  She was rebored to 1293cc and rebuilt to standard spec.  The Carburettors, brakes, gearbox, steering bushes and rack were rebuilt at the same time.  The flywheel was also machined and a new AP clutch fitted.  She has been fitted with a new set of tyres.

The interior is pretty neat with the original seats complemented by a new carpet set, all in Red.  The door cards are all good, and the only let downs in the interior, are metal panels in original paint (still good but faded next to the new paintwork), and her original headlining has yellowed through age.

She recently went through Rego check and is on full ACT Rego.  This is a very original car with all her provenance.  You don't find them like this anymore.  A little more cosmetic tlc and she will be a real show stopper.  An investment for sure!
