This right hand drive Morris Mini Cooper Mk. I was dispatched new on 20th April 1967 to Loxham’s Garage, Preston, in Lancashire. Finished in Almond Green and Old English White, as confirmed by the Heritage Certificate, the previous owner completed a full restoration of this lovely Mini eventually getting the car back on the road in 2016.
The history file includes many photographs of the work undertaken and shows a lot of care went into returning this Mini to its original specification. Open the bonnet and the matching numbers engine is displayed beautifully and detailed correctly, showing off the cars original slam panel – a desirable feature that often gets lost when restoring these early Minis.
This stunning car has been imported back into the UK and now holds a UK V5c. Accompanying the car is a great history file which includes rafts of invoices and old MOT test certificates. Rarely do Minis of this quality come to market and this wonderful example would make a super addition to any classic car collection.
