1962 Morris Mini Minor (Mark I Mini S clone upgrades include 1275 cc engine and front disc brakes)
Privately owned/ Clear CA title in hand and registration paid through 2017
Early Mark I Mini with external door hinges / Original North American export left hand drive (very early history unknown, but the gauges and switches are in Italian and the Weber carb is stamped "Bologna")
Garage stored for 20+ years
No structural rust - Pan & rockers in exceptional condition
No evidence of any accidents or panel repairs as paint depth gauge shows uniform thickness and no bondo
Very well sorted:
* Bridgestone tires with very few miles, recent alignment and balancing
* New CAD plated front brake disc calipers, new brake booster & fluid flush
*New radiator, generator & starter
*No oil leaks and completely serviced (Fresh Brad Penn high zinc/phosphorus 20w-50 oil & magnetic plug)
*Corbeau period bucket seats (both fold forward for rear access)
*Carpets, upholstery, gauges, headliner and door trim in excellent condition
* All gauges, lights, horn etc.. work as they should
* Finned rear (recently resurfaced) drum brakes and Koni shocks all around with new bushings
* 10'' Minilites freshly powdercoated
* Oil cooler w/ braided stainless lines
* Glass and chrome in near perfect condition
* New exhaust
* New Bosch battery & cutoff switch
* Excellent cylinder compression numbers
* Good clutch and transmission shifts as it should (all synchros good)
Overall, a very nice early MKI mini that is in excellent mechanical condition and needs nothing to be immediately enjoyed. Paint shows some minor chips and imperfections, but the finish and color depth/clarity are excellent. Recent brake, electrical, exhaust, engine maintenance and cosmetics etc.. ran well over 6k.
