We are very pleased to offer a very rare early 1974 Morris Mini Clubman. Its been a long time since i have seen a none GT early Clubman and its nice to have one in our inventory. Its an absolute joy of a Mini and a real pleasure to drive. Its finished in very period Orange and is presented in a very original unrestored condition, if your after a factory spec early Clubman that has lots of caharacter then you may have just found your Mini. It has only covered 51k in 45 years and is accompanied with its original Passport to service book with 25 stamps. Registered new by Carey and Lambert in Winchester and dry stored since 2005. This is also a full matching numbers example with its original FE number and floor pan tag.
Popularity of Clubmans has soared in the last couple of years and an early unrestored example is getting virtually unique. Driving this Mini is a great experience and really feels like stepping back in time, it has not been altered in any way and has that pure Mini driving experience thats done so well by seventies Minis. The 998 engine fires instantly and performs well through a smooth gearbox. It has just had four new tyres, brakes and suspension and a thorough service so it feels very smooth on the open road with that legendary ten inch wheel handling. Get ready for the attention this Mini gets as everyone wants to talk about it!
This Clubman has its original interior except for a new carpet set. the very comfortable seats are well presented apart from a small tare on the passenger seat. The roof lining and door cards are all very good and it still has its original steering wheel and a MW Radio that still works and the optional extra heated rear screen. It also still has its original registration plates ans rust prevention sticker on the back window which may answer for its condition.
This Clubman has never been restored instead its been very well preserved throughout its life and as a result its presented in very good solid condition. Its one of the best unrestored Mini shells I have ever seen. It has the correct vented sills, solid floor pans, boot floor and wings. The rear bins are still body colured as are the floor pans. It is a very correct example and wearing its years very well. It has also just had a brand new rear subframe and fitting kit . The paintwork is well presented and has patina which adds to the charm, we feel it would be a shame to paint this Clubman as it is so rare and well presented and I am sure its new owner will agree.
As mentioned this Clubman is fully serviced and has a full MOT which it passed and has many new parts so is ready to be driven and enjoyed. It is also now tax and MOT exempt and will make the perfect companion to the many 60th birthday celebrations for the Mini being held this year.
