Very cool and clean little 1969 Morris Mini for sale. Super clean, newer interior and nice body with no rust or rot on an older, shiny but nice looking paint job. Good glass, trim & chrome. Starts; runs and drives great with lot's of power. I don't know when the engine was built but our British mechanic checked it and compression is 140-145 across the board. Recent tune up, spark plugs and he just installed a new manifold gasket. (You'll see that when I shot the photos that the bonnet was misaligned from having it off the car to do the work, we just took care of this). The syncromesh 4-speed transmission shifts great up and down through all of the gears. The brakes are quick and responsive with 7" discs upfront and drums on the rear and the car has brand new tires on the 10" rims. It has been wired with antenna and speakers and ready for your sound system. The lights are all in working order as are the gauges. It's turn key and ready to enjoy.
The car is Australian built which is why it has a Mk1 body. When the Mk2 cars were released in Australia, cost constraints on production meant they did not inherit the changes made to the body, such as the grille and the larger rear window. In addition, the Australian Mini was a bit different from the UK car because they already had made several smaller changes as well such as roll up windows. In the end it was the non- S that received greater improvements than it's sportier sibling. The biggest change for this early Mk2 was a syncromesh transmission.
I've been driving the car a lot over the last few weeks and know it well so feel free to call me if you'd like. Thanks for checking it out.
