This MK I mini is receiving a rebuilt 1275 engine and a rebuilt rod
change gearbox. It has a clean title and low miles. The current
owners are unsure of what exactly this Mk I is as there is no VIN
to decode, just titled of the body tag. By decoding these tags,
they have determined it is in fact a Cooper. It is fitted with an
original looking 130mph speedometer and fitted with hydrolastic
suspension. The outside is finished in an iris blue and white roof.
The current owners almost want to claim the paint as original as it
has some modest fading on the boot and looking at the hinges, some
rust has shown through without any primer or filler. The body has
some areas with rust poking through, but for the cars age, it is
not abnormal. Replacement of the hinges and some panels can refresh
everything. The glass is all intact without issues. The wheels are
a chrome minilite style with newer Falken FK-07E tires. The
interior is a little mixed up. The dash is utilizing an ash-wood
bezel and is fitted with a red motolita racing wheel. The rear seat
appears to be a later type basic seat, with the fronts being older
cloth cobras. The fabric does have some tears in it. The cream
colored door cards and headliner are in great shape. Under the
bonnet will be one of two things, if you opt for the roller, it
will have nothing! If you would like the owners to fit their fully
rebuilt power unit, this mini will be powered by a 1275 Pre A-Plus
engine, utilizing a twin HS2 set up just as a Cooper would have.
Coupled that to an A-Plus Rod Change gearbox, and you have one good
powerplant! It will be painted MOWOG green and made to look
relatively standard, unless requested differently ahead of time.
They can also build the engine to your standards before it is
installed. Please Note The Following **Vehicle Location is at our
