Impeccable Morris Mini Minor Super-de-Luxe with Only 36,584 Miles and Low Owners - SOLD
SOLD - MORE URGENTLY REQUIRED
Impeccable Morris Mini Minor Super-de-Luxe with only 36,584 miles and low
Bumper overriders with tubular extensions, bright finishing to windscreen,
chromed filler cap, chromed number plate lamp, double-dip headlamps, hinged
rear number plate, sliding windows, opening rear windows, wide door
pockets, oval nacelle facia, flashing indicator stalk, fresh air heater,
oil pressure gauge, water temperature gauge, door kick protectors, front
and rear ashtrays, two crushable sun visors. Dealer fitted accessories;
Radio, under-seat wicker baskets, seat-belts, alpine horn.
This Austin Mini is pert and smart finished in Almond Green and is truly
stunning with a flawless glossy shine. All the chrome detailing unique to
the Super-de-Luxe model has a mirror finish and is immaculate. The glass,
rubbers and lenses are as new. The engine bay is a delight and has been
meticulously detailed. A splendid show piece.
Glorious and factory fresh the standard Porcelain Green trim complements
the exterior wonderfully and is preserved in every respect. Washable
vinyl-coated fabric seats match the door cards and the patterned headlining
is tight and clean. The factory fit carpets are spotless. The anti-glare
safety mirror housing is slightly cracked and the steering wheel Morris
badge has some tiny stress fractures. The large instrument nacelle housing
all the warning lights and gauges function perfectly as does the flashing
indicator stalk. The boot floor still has the original vinyl coated felt
mat with a later fitted velour over mat. Two wicker baskets are included
under the rear seat cushion. Simply divine.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
A water cooled, overhead-valve four-cylinder engine mounted transversely
has a cubic capacity of 848cc and produces 34bhp. The engine is whisper
quiet and progress is steady mounted to the original and very rare factory
fitted automatic gearbox which, along with all the other mechanic
components, is in perfect order. The engine bay has been detailed for
bonnet-up showing and creating a 'wow' factor.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Pressed steel wheels with rare Super-de-Luxe chrome embellishers remain
highly polished with minor markings. Sourced from the Heritage Centre the
Dunlop SP Aquajet radial tyres of 145 SR10 size are as new. Braking to all
four wheels is hydraulically operated by a pendant pedal with two leading
shoes at the front.
Supplied by Holland Brothers Ltd in Boston, this wonderful example was
built in August 1967 and dispatched for registration in August 1968. With
only three former keepers and 36,584 miles this vehicle has only ever been
enthusiast owned and pampered enjoying many classic car shows and events.
Numerous awards are testament to the originality and quality many strive
but never achieve. A British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate
confirm matching numbers for the purist. One of the best.
