MORRIS MINI Cooper 1969

vehicle overview

1961 Morris Mini Cooper MK II. Old English White with Black Roof and grey upholstery. The first Mini Cooper appeared in 1961, following a tie-up with champion F1 constructor John Cooper. The stroke of the standard 848cc engine was lengthened to 997cc which, together with other improvements, raised power output from 34 to 55bhp - a close-ratio gearbox and front wheel disc brakes completed the package. That engine was replaced by a shorter stroke 998cc unit in 1964, while the Mark II version launched in 1967 featured a redesigned grille, larger rear window and numerous cosmetic changes. This MK2 Cooper has remained within its current ownership for 13 years. A genuine example complete with heritage certificate, it features very tidy bodywork that's teamed with fresh Newton Commercial Porcelain Green/Grey Dove interior trim with matching Grey wool carpets. Something of a wolf in sheep's clothing, the car has been uprated to fast road specification in all major departments. The fully refurbished engine has been taken out to 1330cc (plus 60) and treated to: a Swiftune big valve cylinder head, Mini Spares pistons, steel flywheel and backplate, Russell Engineering RE13 camshaft, ISWS timing chain, LCB manifold leading to an RC40 exhaust system. The four-speed transmission has been refurbished with new bearings, centre pick-up and 3:1 differential. The suspension features a HILO system together with cones. Braking performance has also been increased courtesy of Cooper S front discs with Mintex 1114 pads and Cooper S rims on the rear. Last but not least, this mighty Mini now rides on reverse Cooper wheel rims shod with Yokohama A-008 tyres. Period extras include: an auxiliary Lucas rear reversing light, exterior rear-view mirrors, quick-release radiator grille, wood rim steering wheel, electronic rev-counter and auxiliary battery and oil pressure instrumentation, roof-mounted radio aerial, and leather bonnet strap. The car drives very well and is great fun with strong performance to boot. The car is now MOT and tax exempt although we will apply a new MOT upon sale for your peace of mind. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Please visit our Website, find us on Facebook and like us on Instagram or just feel free to email or call us.
