Description

This genuine and original 1275cc Morris Cooper S Mk II is believed to be 1 of only 3 cars in South Africa. The car has an interesting history from new with only 2 previous registered owners from 18 September 1968 to 4 December 1989. It was de-registered by the second owner to be overhauled and resprayed. It remained partially disassembled until July 2019, when the current owner commenced a complete and detailed restoration of the car to the original color, body, and engine specification.

The body shell is recognized as genuine BMC Mini Cooper MK II, with the larger rear window and light clusters. According to the original registration document it has the original 1275 engine, with nitrated crankshaft, and fitted with later oil-cooler and radiator header tank for improved cooling in tropical climates.

It is fitted with 4 x 4,5J 9-hole original rims with new Dunlop SP Sport 165/70 tires and with a period correct 3,5J spare wheel and jack in the boot.

Interior- Simply perfect having been completely re-trimmed in the original black vinyl coated seat fabric, new black carpet set, matching door cards and restored flawless dash which all complement the exterior wonderfully. The boot area is impressive with gleaming gloss black painted twin tanks synonymous with the Cooper S and new carpeted boot floor.

Exterior- This Morris Mini Cooper S MK II finished in its original Almond Green with the roof in Old English White is seriously impressive with a deep glossy uniformed flawless finish. All the chrome detailing has a mirror finish and is immaculate throughout the underside of the car is equally immaculate, unmarked, the original matching numbers engine was fully rebuilt by Bob Osborne and has only covered a mere 285 km since completion.

The engine bay is completely detailed, and the drive train retains the original Hardy Spicer couplings and prop shaft.

This Cooper S only be described as a collectors / enthusiast’s dream. It wants for nothing and is ready to be used and enjoyed.
