First registered in May 1965, this two-door Minor has had just one owner for the past 16 years and was in regular use until 2008 when it was put into storage in an old military bunker.
Recently got running again to prepare it for sale, it looks most distinctive in its red and white colour scheme, both inside and out, the interior equipped with a radio and separate cassette player. A period windscreen sun-visor, chrome headlamp ‘eyebrows’ and a set of chunky Rostyle wheels add a sporty touch and we are told that a later gearbox and 1,098cc engine with hotter valve gear have been fitted. As there is no supporting documentation, you will have to make your own minds up on that score.
The recent recommissioning included a replacement battery, starter motor stripped and cleaned, a new set of plugs, fuel tank drained and cleaned and a good check-over. The engine started easily and ran sweetly as we moved it around for these photos.
The history file includes a selection of invoices detailing replacement parts prior to being stored along with a V5C, two old style V5s, a Morris Minor parts manual with useful exploded views and five old MOT certificates along with old tax discs and SORN confirmations.
Being offered here as a ‘use and improve’ project with no reserve, it has plenty going for it (the panels are straight, the interior is nicely patinated, the paint good and the engine runs well) so it should be easy enough to get it back on the road where it belongs.
