1962 AUSTIN COOPER

The team at Car­tel Works has re­cently com­pleted the restora­tion of this lovely lit­tle gen­uine 1962 Austin Cooper in its Nel­son work­shop. It’s a project that has been years in the mak­ing for their client, Paul, and one that the team is very happy to be bring­ing to a close for him.

The car was com­pletely stripped back to bare metal and has been given a stun­ning paint job in Old English White, with a black roof, by Garth, the com­pany’s paint guru. The in­te­rior has had a full re­fresh in pe­riod- cor­rect ma­te­ri­als and pat­terns, and the whole car has been care­fully re­assem­bled by team mem­bers Chris and Guy, pay­ing at­ten­tion to fit­ting cor­rectly dated orig­i­nal parts when pos­si­ble, rather than re­plac­ing all with new. The end re­sult is sim­ply a lovely lit­tle car.

Sadly for Paul, but for­tu­nately for some­one else out there, his pri­or­i­ties have changed, and this stun­ning Cooper is now for sale. Any­one in­ter­ested can con­tact Mike at Car­tel Works on 03 547 0858.
