1960 Morris Minor Mini Saloon
This Morris Mini is an early-import MkI that is powered by a non-original 1275cc BMC inline-four paired to a 4-speed manual gearbox. This LHD example was originally finished in Cherry Red and was repainted Island Blue with a contrasting white top during a restoration in 2002. The paint was recently re-applied in a matching PPG color, and the interior has been refurbished. The car is modified with a mild cam, ANSA exhaust, Cooper S front disc brakes, and JAP Magna wheels. The 91k miles on the odometer are believed original, offering the car with a with a certificate of authenticity from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust
The original A-Series 848cc inline-four was replaced with a 1275cc unit mated to a sump-oiled 4-speed manual transmission. The seller notes that the larger replacement engine has been tuned for more performance with a mild cam and a twin-tip ANSA exhaust. It is said to run strong and has no visible leaks.
Cooper S front discs are an upgrade over the original drums fitted to this car. The suspension system in the MkI Mini was dampened by rubber cones attached to the subframe assembly rather than springs. This provided a progressive damping rate under compression that gave these early Minis their reputed sharp handling characteristics. The period JAP Magna wheels show a few instances of light curb rash and are shod with newer Yokohama tires.
The body-color floorpans and black subframe assemblies are fresh and well-detailed. The suspension components also appear to be in nice shape, and rubber seals and body plugs look supple and uncracked. Many pictures of the underside and disassembled interior attest to the clean condition of the body, inside and out.
The seller claims the car to be sorted, and it is sold with the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate seen above.
