1970 Mor­ris Mini 1000

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Nu­mer­ous pun­ters were seen giv­ing this lit­tle gem a se­ri­ous once-over, and while it wasn’t in stun­ning or­der, it had that reg­u­lar-use patina that gives a car more per­son­al­ity than any con­cours restora­tion can ever achieve.

The first owner had it for 32 years and later in its life it had been off the road for four years. Re­cent re-com­mis­sion­ing and an MoT test un­til next April was good, and while the paint and body­work were pre­sentable rather than ex­cel­lent, it was still a charmer that would go down a treat at any show.

It lacked car­pets, but af­ford­able re­place­ments will perk up the in­te­rior. Add in the pe­riod roofrack and it was clearly go­ing to find a new home. Lovely.
