This immaculate Mk1 Austin Mini Cooper 998cc was supplied new by Taunton Motor Company Limited, Taunton, Somerset on 16th December 1966.
Having been subject to an extensive restoration, the car is finished in its original Tweed Grey and Old English white. It retains the original factory bucket seats that have been beautifully retrimmed in the original colours of Dark Grey with Dove Grey inserts. The car was also supplied new with the optional Fresh Air Heater.
This Cooper also benefits from a Mk1 Cooper S brake upgrades for additional stopping power. The 998cc engine pulls and performs just as it should with no oil leaks. Mechanically and aesthetically this vehicle is in exceptional condition throughout. With these Mk1 Coopers becoming increasingly desirable and valuable, this example would be the perfect addition to any collection and is ready to be enjoyed.
Accompanying the car is a BMIHT Certificate of Factory Record along with some service recent service history, Driver's Handbook, Workshop Manual and Dealer Brochure. The car will be supplied with a full one year MOT and a service and is ready to view by appointment at our West London Showroom.
