1965 Morris Mini Cooper S (MK1 970)

The details of this rare 970cc Cooper S have been online for some time - we're undure when exactly it sold or for how much. For more information on the 970cc Morris Cooper S, see Classic Register's 970cc Cooper S ID-guide here

This Morris Mini Cooper S has been restored by the vendor to a superb standard. Leaving no stone unturned, the engine was removed and stripped down along with the gearbox while the bodywork was being attended to. In addition to this the suspension, brakes and steering were all rebuilt or replaced as necessary. The quality of paintwork is excellent and clearly many hours were spent on preparing the bodywork correctly by the exceedingly fastidious vendor.

The mileage of 29,281 appears genuine although not warranted and the interior of this delightful Mini is completely original apart from the steering wheel. Without doubt Morris Mini Coopers are exceedingly rare, as is a restoration project of this quality. With an engine that runs like a sewing machine and a gearbox that is almost perfect in operation this Cooper S has performance and styling in abundance. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate, this Mini has the original 970cc engine AEG 151 block and 12G 190 gearbox, one of the best Mini Coopers S's we have seen.
