STILL AVAILABLE, CONTACT US FOR FURTHER INFORMATION OR TO MAKE AN OFFER 1968 Austin Mini Cooper MKII Estimate: £18,000 - £22,000 Only 2 former keepers and 40,000 recorded miles Registration No: TJW989F Chassis No: CA2SB1159904 MOT: November 2020 Motor Car Location: Worcestershire - Fully rebuilt engine - Full body restoration using Heritage panels wherever possible - New interior by Newton Commercials - Only 300 miles since restoration - Green logbook present We are indebted to the Vendor for providing the following information: "Making its debut in 1961, the giant-slaying Mini Cooper went on to become one of the most successful competition cars of all time, literally running rings around far bigger and more potent opponents by dint of its incredible handling. The original 997cc long-stroke engine was supplanted in 1954 with the 998cc unit. The standard output of 34bhp increased to 55bhp, and the twin SUs and close-ratio gearbox made for a very successful formula. A major revamp occurred in 1957 with the introduction of the MKII with a larger rear window and a different grille amongst a raft of other changes. Some 1C(BO MKII Coopers were sold before production came to an end in 1959 and survivors are increasingly prized by collectors. As the original green logbook confirms, this stunning MKII Cooper 998 has spent its whole life in the Black Country being supplied new by Lewis Motor Sales of Wednesfield in December 1968. The current owner (who is only the third from new) acquired it as a retirement project way back in 1996 but life got in the way and it would be another 18 years before he actually got round to working on the car, quietly amassing a wealth of spare parts in the meantime. The wait was certainly worth it though, and between 2014 and 2019 the car was completely dismantled and rebuilt with the spectacular results you see today. Finished in classic Tartan Red with a black roof, the bodywork has been fully restored using genuine Heritage panels wherever possible (wings, inner wings, scuttle, front panel, A panels, boot floor, etc.) along with new bumpers, overriders and grille. The interior is all new using Newton Commercial seat covers, headlining and carpets. Even the sun visors and seat belts are new. The engine has been fully rebuilt with new +4(hh pistons as has the original close-ratio gearbox which received a new gear cluster. A new clutch is fitted with the correct 'grey' master cylinder, another being used on the brakes. The driveshafts were also renewed along with the brakes, suspension, rear subframe, wiring loom, radiator, windscreen, window catches - you get the picture! As good underneath as it is up top, the car has only covered 300 miles since the restoration was completed. It performs beautifully on a test drive with excellent oil pressure, peppy performance and a firm rattle-free ride. All the new owner has to do is drive the wheels off it!"
