For sale 1968 Austin Mini Cooper Mk2 998cc 75260 miles
I have decided to sell after 44years ownership
I purchased as a standard Mini Cooper in 1974 with the intention of using in local club road rallies, I upgraded the brakes and suspension to Cooper S specification and made a few period modifications to make the car more suitable for purpose but it is still mainly very original.
I used the car in a number of closed and restricted night rallies in the mid seventies, picture of me driving on the ar-hyd-y-nos rally 1975.
The car is in fantastic condition for its age, the engine runs sweetly with good oil pressure and no smoke, clutch and gearbox work well, it has its original interior, including carpet and under-felt, and most of its original factory paint finish. I have the original Austin radiator grill, although been modified, and the reflective number plates are the restored originals that were on the car when I purchased in 1974.
I have not used the car for a while now but I have started it regularly and kept it in good running order.
There are two previous owners from new I have a modern V5 but unfortunately have mislaid the original green log book and invoice, these may turn up, although I do have copies and much documented history.
