This beautiful mini cooper mk1 is part of a private collection of our rare and collectable minis. Mini cooper mk1s do come up for sale, however finding a truly original car is quite a challenge. It took us many years of searching before finding one in this original colour combination which has been sympathetically restored retaining nearly all of the original fixtures and fittings. The attention to detail and authentic matching numbers & heritage certificate confirms this. There is no rust anywhere on this vehicle, as it lives in a temperature controlled home. For those of you who know your mk1 minis, the original features listed below show the authenticity of this cooper and its natural patina not like the usual over restored mk1`s seen today fitted with non bmc parts. First registered on the 8th june 1966, this austin mini cooper mk1 left the factory in the old english white paintwork with black roof arguably the most desirable colour combination of all. The car has never had a colour change and the original factory colour scheme is still retained today and looks fantastic getting attention wherever it goes.

interior information original red & gold brocade vinyl interior trim, completely original 1966 seat covers apart from driver’s seat retrimmed by newton commercials classics using matching material, original bmc 3 point seatbelts, original 1960’s factory fitted webasto sliding sunroof with chrome fittings & new vinyl roof, refurbished original bakerlite cooper sports steering wheel, professionally remanufactured red carpet with correct design integrated pvc foot mat on driver’s side only - as per the car’s original design (many cars have the black pvc on both sides which isn’t correct. Original untampered binnicle mk1 dashboard with correct mileage & heritage certificate. Original chrome rear ash trays both complete. Original factory fitted fresh air heater which works great. All glass & locks have the original factory build date stamps on (may 1966).

exterior information all original chrome patina, a few other upgraded parts have been kept for nostalgia and originality reasons, for example the rear bumper was in need of restoration but was replaced, however the original rear bumper has been kept in storage to be included in the sale. Original chrome patina 5 bolt front bumper with original bumper overiders, original mk1 four fluted sills.

mechanical information in 2012 this cooper underwent a very expensive sympathetic bare metal restoration retaining over 95% of the original features. The original 998cc 12g 295 cylinder head engine was restored and a fast road camshaft installed giving the car slightly more power and a wonderful sporty idle. Original inch & quarter hs2 su carburettors, original metal air filer unit, original 3 synco gear box completely rebuilt and changes gear beautifully. New radiator, (the original coventry radiator is included in the sale (good condition), new water pump. Maniflow cooper free flow exhaust manifold and rc40 rear silencer, build date stamps on wiper motor & other components. Electrical system still running the original positive earth on dynamo as it left the factory. Many coopers have been changed to negative earth wiring losing their originality. Original hydrolastic suspension in correct ‘wet’ subframes, hydrolastic suspension correctly set up as per the original factory data (282psi front 315-350mm, rear 325-340mm) cars without this suspension need different sub frames fitted. Often this can be overlooked during a restoration. Original cooper 7 inch front disc brakes with refurbished callipers and new discs & pads. Superb brakes. Cooper ‘s’ original reverse rim 10 inch wheels, good quality yokohama 008 tyres, new battery, well maintained and new battery. Mot & tax exempt, so can be used inside the congestion charge zones without charge. Having owned this car for 7 years we have decided to make room for some other classic cars. This mini is being sold from our private collection i would class it as almost unbeatable for it's originality and superb condition, not restored with all new components losing their patina and history. Please call for more details. If you are serious about owning a mk1 mini cooper, they don’t come much better than this one, in this great colour combination. Viewing recommended. (no canvassers please). thank you. (many more pictures available on request)
