1967 Mini CooperThis is a genuine Mk1 1967 Morris Mini Cooper 998cc (not an S). During production Mini's werebuilt under two names: Morris or Austin, othessentiallythe same car although the Morris seems to be a little rarer. This particular car is a right hand drive UK import brought over decades ago by a US service member, tended up in the San Francisco Bay Area which is where I found it.
Since then it has undergone a complete "frame off" restoration over the past year. Being an original MK1 it was a very complete car, ut suffered from the wet British weather. The car was completely stripped, lasted and epoxy primed, anels that were too rusted were repaired with metalwork or replaced with new ones.The sub-frames and running gear were also blasted and powder coated. The car was then repainted in original Almond Green with and Old English White roof.
Although this Mini Cooper is not an 'S' model, t does have some nice period features, ncluding: twin tanks with theright hand tank being a "Serck" brand dealer option from the 60's, .5' Cooper S vented wheels, nd a 12 row oil cooler. It also still sits on its originalhydrolastic suspension which works great, lthough with the added upgrades of competitionbump stops and front Spax shocks, ust like the works rally cars did.
The Engine is the original Cooper 998 unit with twin SU carbs, t wasrefreshed and givenall new seals and gaskets and runs great with no leaks.
The interior is original green and grey and in nice condition, nd has brand new Newton Commercial carpet. All thegauges andswitcheswork fine, ith the addition of a period Smiths tachometer.
Some minor issues: Some of the chrome has dings and pitting, think it adds to thecharacter but would be easy to replace. The interior door cards are original but have some stains and small tears, gain an easy replacement if so desired.
Mk1 Coopers are becoming scarce and most have beensnatchedup and taken to Japan, he ones that show up for sale are often missing parts or not true MK1's. This is a rare chance to grab a very complete MK1 Mini Cooper while prices are low but continue to rise.
