The Austin Mini Cooper and Morris Mini Cooper debuted in September 1961. The engine from the Morris Mini-Minor was given a longer stroke to increase capacity to 997 cc increasing power from 34 to 55 bhp. The car featured a race-tuned engine, twin SU carburettors, a closer-ratio gearbox and front disc brakes. The 997 engine was replaced by a shorter stroke 998 cc unit in 1964. Sales of the Mini Cooper were as follows: 64,000 Mark I Coopers with 997 cc or 998 cc engines, 16,000 Mark II Coopers with 998 cc engines. There were no Mark III Coopers.
Here is a great opportunity to own a early Mk1 Morris Mini Cooper 998cc. It is in correct 1964 spec, with its original shell, engine and interior. All Matching Numbers, the car comes with a supporting Heritage Certificate. Owned by the vendor for the last 4 years, and previously owned by the same family for 20 years, it has had only 5 former owners.
This Mini was fully restored over a 10 year period with photo evidence. It has recently undergone new interior trim, except the seats which are the original ones, and still in very good condition. There is no apparent rust, and all cavities have been Dynex rust proofed. There is a huge history file that comes with this car which shows the Coopers history including newspaper cuttings of the car. Most MOT's from new are present, and the car comes with its original handbook and BMC Passport to Service books. This is a genuine dry suspension car as delivered from factory when new. Recently serviced, drives without fault, and comes with long MOT.
The MK1 Cooper is the one to have and rarely come along like this, Old English White/Black roof, a great colour combination.
