For sale: 1970 Morris Mini Cooper S (MK1)


This is an early MK2 Australian assembled Cooper S, and according to the Ausmini register was built in January 1970, and complied in February 1970. This was just after the introduction of compliance plates, and this vehicle is a matching number example with its original and refurbished engine fitted.

The car is one of approximately 2,500 MK2s built between 1969 and 1971, making it a very desirable and rare example, particularly over in New Zealand where the car is located. The MK2 Cooper S cars benefited from several upgrades including a full synchro gearbox, flared wheel arches, alternator and numerous other changes differentiating it from the MK1.

This particular example has undergone a full bare metal restoration, with no expense spared, finished in its original GTO Green paint with Crystal White roof. A nice set of period contessa style 10 inch mag wheels have been fitted, and finish off the car nicely. There is nothing to spend and this S is ready to enjoy, representing one of the few genuine MK2 Cooper S vehicles on offer in Australia and New Zealand.

A lovely colour combination on the 1275 GT, Gold on Creme with a gold decal. This one was spotted on trademe in late 2019, looks in solid original condition. Looks to be the correct original motor. At the time it was offered, the seller noted it runs and drives, but the rego was on hold. Check out the others on the 1275 GT register below - lots of NZ cars..

The first on the register, a rare 1990 Mini 30th Anniversary. This one was advertised on Ebay USA in November 2019, asking $10,900 buy it now. Looks in solid condition, with the seller noting the car originally came from Japan.

This customised GTO was advertised on trademe NZ ni November 2019. Interesting modifications - this one has a fuel injected motor setup, and electric windows so u can easily wind all 4 windows down and cruise with the pillerless windows. A bit or rust and scrapes, but looks like its worth spending some money on - wouldnt take much to get it looking great.

It's been a while, but finally we've spotted another LS for sale to add to the register! This one was listed on Ebay Australia in November 2019. Looks to be very original, other than the wheels. Must have lost its 8.4 inch disc brakes at some point as it's sitting on 10 inch wheels.
