Only 4,000 or so 1071cc-engined Mini Cooper S cars were made between April 1963 and August 1964. A Morris version built on January 2nd 1964, chassis K-A2S4-488266 was despatched to the Austin Motor Company's Experimental Department in Longbridge thereafter. Reportedly the sole survivor of just three Cooper S cars converted to hatchback specification and the only one to feature a steel rather than GRP tailgate, the re-badged Mini's first private keeper was the Rt Hon Ernest Marples MP who took delivery on August 22nd 1968. Notable for opening the M1 motorway and introducing more rigorous MOT tests plus the use of breathalysers, the former Minister for Transport is understood to have specifically wanted a hatchback to accommodate his golf clubs and / or the produce of his own vineyard! Having tried to place an order with John Cooper at the Racing Car Show, Lord Marples (as he became) was referred to the Chairman of BMC, George Harriman. As well as a bespoke folding rear bench seat, reversed door handles and special window frames, the unique Mini featured a padded headlining and dash rails not to mention non-standard front indicators and side repeater lights. However, it is not known
This competition car was built from scratch using new & reconditioned parts throughout. The works were undertaken by specialists & is finished to a high standard. The car is ready for shakedown, then competition at Sprints, Hill Climbs & Circuits with the 750 Motor Club & the VSCC, although the car would need some modification to gain a "Buff Form". A write-up of the build & specification is available on request. Potentially a very quick car.
This car was built up in New Zealand and used successfully in trails there, winning many trophies. Ideal for 750 Motor Club events. Chassis is a cut down Ruby to Chummy dimensions. 2 bearing 1 1/8th. crank. Fully balanced clutch. Flattened cam followers. 12v, no dynamo 1" SU Engine set back. 4-speed Ruby gearbox and diff. Competition only, not registered for the road. Very good low down torque. A very well made special, tight and great fun to drive, not a lot of money!

1959 Austin A35 Four door saloon 948cc. Court grey with red leather upholstery and red carpets. This delightful little four-door A35 was supplied new by Arnold Genders and Co of Kings Heath, Birmingham, in July 1959 and had just two local owners for the next 52 years, the first keeping it until 1970 and the second until 2011. In lovely original condition throughout, it is believed to have covered only 66,000 miles from new and comes with many old MOT certificates back to 1981, by which point it had 62,867 miles under its wheels. Fitted with inertia reel seat belts and a new fuel tank in 2010, it also has various bills showing routine maintenance over the last dozen years. This smartly turned-out four-door A35 has recently been recommissioned after three years off the road. It no longer requires an MOT although it is MoT'd until April 2018 and also comes with its rather nice transferable number YOM 671. We have a history file with the car which contains the original buff log book. Running and driving well this little Austin is an ideal starter classic. We think this is a car that any collector or enthusiast would be pleased to own. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Please contact us for any further information. Delivery to mainland UK included in the asking price. Shipping can be arranged.
- Part of a private collection for many years. Currently running but would benefit from recommissioning / fettling - 1 of just 3,718 made and resident in Eire since 1995 (previously UK reg'd as 'GCA 570') - Black upholstery piped in red, older restoration, 10,555 unwarranted miles Aimed squarely at the American market, the Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible was a brave gamble that did not pay off. Intended to generate a steady flow of US dollars and so satisfy the British government's ruthless 'export or die' edict, its flamboyant steel bodywork was a riot of bulbous curves, swooping lines and chrome accents. Launched at the 1948 London Motor Show, the Atlantic was underpinned by a rigid cruciform-braced chassis equipped with independent coil-sprung front suspension, a leaf-sprung 'live' rear axle and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a 2660cc OHV four-cylinder engine mated to four-speed column-change manual transmission, it was more boulevardier than sports car. Not that this stopped Austin from pounding one round the Indianapolis Speedway for seven days non-stop! A feat that not only underlined the model's 92mph top speed but also yielded an impressive sixty-three stock car records
- A RHD, 'home market' 1275 Cooper S that was supplied new via Moir & Baxter of Edinburgh - Originally finished in Almond Green with an Old English White roof and Porcelain Green upholstery with Dove Grey inserts - Treated to a full professional respray and mechanical reconditioning in 2008 and sparingly used as part of a private collection since then The chance meeting between John Cooper and Aurelio Lampredi at the 1959 Italian GP is now an established part of Mini folklore. Having charmed a very early 850cc model out of BMC and driven it to Monza, Cooper was accosted by Fiat engineer (and ex-Ferrari F1 designer) Lampredi. Infected by his old enemy's enthusiasm, the Italian asked to borrow the new wonder car. Returning several hours later, he heralded it as the future of automotive design before adding "if it weren't so ugly, I'd shoot myself". Unperturbed Cooper continued to harass Issigonis and BMC until they agreed to build a 'hot' version. Initially conceived as a homologation special, the Mini Cooper was launched in July 1961. Powered by an enlarged 997cc engine and benefiting from front disc brakes, it gave way to a succession of ever quicker variants culminating in the 127
- Built on March 10th 1969 and supplied new via Murray and Charleton Ltd of Middlesborough - The subject of an extensive 'bare metal' restoration from 2010-2011 - A 'matching numbers' example that retains its original bodyshell Introduced in Autumn 1967, the MKII version of the Mini Cooper had lost none of its predecessor's vim or driving appeal. Powered by a 998cc four-cylinder A-series engine allied to four-speed manual transmission, it was still capable of humbling many a more exotic sportscar when the going got twisty. According to its accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, this particular example was built on March 10th 1969 and despatched to Murray & Charleton Ltd of Middlesborough the following day. Originally finished in Tartan Red with Black upholstery, the Austin was acquired by its previous keeper, Robert Russell of Chelmsford, during November 2009. Having ascertained that the Mini retained its original bodyshell, engine and gearbox, Mr Russell set about an exhaustive 'bare metal' restoration which took over a year to complete (March 2010 - April 2011). An understanding of the lengths he went to can be gleaned from viewing the blog section of www

I'm selling my Mini 1000 1978 Azure Blue With Brown Strip Original Trim, Only Covered 67,000 Miles ;The story in short:;I purchased the mini off a gentleman that did 90% of the refurb but then needed to sell due to lack of space, he had it for nearly 4 years which he slowly did the refurbishment, I have photos of the rebuild from start to finish. The reason he did such an intensive rebuild is because he bought the mini off his friend who owned it for 19 year but left it sitting in a barn and over the years became very rotten hence why it was stripped down and totally resprayed and engine rebuild. Once I got it I did a little detailing because I like my cars to look totally orignal I put new bumpers on, mirrors, front grill, alternator and other service things and it runs lovely now, I did the London to Brighton back in May and few other events it will be missed once sold! ;I do believe these little cars are slowly going up in value and would be a great little investment. I have had a look what else is for sale and these 70's mini's are really shooting up in value! ;Anyway please call for any information
This superbly presented MKI Mini Saloon was first registered on the 01st Jan 1961 and was supplied brand new in a light blue to the Metropolitan Police Force and allocated the registration mark MDX958. Since this time it has had only two owners with the docs showing it was last sold in 1988, prior to our acquiring it on the 24.03.2012 as a barn find and putting it back on the road. Mini's are fast appreciating; this has to be a good long term purchase. During our ownership we have upgraded the brakes, engine, extra chrome etc as it was purchased as a first car for our daughter with it being a small engine but many origional features remain. It has the push button start, the horsehair seats which are now covered in a plasticised trim as seen in the pictures and many other features from when the car was first built. Now christened Judy this car is part of the family but we must let her go, she has been off road for roughly two years whilst we debated what to do and during this time was stored at our garage business but now we have semi-retired and she is sat on our drive uunder a blaket waiting to be loved and cherished by a new family as we have. Unfortunately, during this time one of the aliminium trumpets which act as suspension struts has broken and needs replacing, so the car will have to be picked up on a low loader, We are open to offers and although money is important to us as we have invested a substantial amount in this car to make her road worthy, we would also like her to go to a new home to be loved and cherished as we have, Please note milage is slightly more then advertised at 15300.
FOR SALE A splendid Austin Seven Basic Mini Saloon in show condition EQUIPMENT All steel unitary construction, double-dip headlamps with foot operated dip switch, hinged rear number plate, sliding windows, one sun visor, floor mounted starter switch, central instrument dial, oil pressure warning lamp, drivers seat adjustable, wide door pockets, flashing indicator stalk, fresh air heater, front ashtray. EXTERIOR This stunning very early Austin Mini is finished in hard wearing Farina Grey, (Code GR11), and is virtually flawless with an impressive glossy shine. Being the Basic model no bright inserts are found in the window rubbers and correct features such as the body colour petrol filler cap and rear number plate lamp in black remain fitted. Considered by some as running prototypes the early production models had distinguishing features such as the non-recessed glass apertures and flat sills. These cars were 50kg lighter than the standard production car. The wavy chrome grill and correct boot script are in excellent order. Wheel arch apertures are incredibly clean and the underside is body coloured. Cuteness in abundance! INTERIOR Being the Basic model the seats are finished hard wearing Grey Woven Cloth that have been meticulously recreated by Hunters of Brora Ltd and look absolutely fabulous. The cream Austin speedo is beautifully preserved and sits fully functional on the painted board dash lining. Unique features are still fitted such as the flat switch panel, centre hinged sun visor and the rear view mirror with a long slender stem and pinch bracket to hold the glass finished in crackle black. Thick pile grey carpeting and matching woven cloth door cards have been professionally tailored and replace the rubber mats. The floor mounted starter button remains in situ. 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 is still the factory supplied unit with matching numbers. Early production car features such as the metal oil filler cap and metal filler caps for the master cylinders are still fitted. The correct DR2 wiper motor and heater take off tap accessed from the engine bay on top of the head is fitted. The cylinder head has been converted to run on unleaded. The engine bay has been detailed for bonnet-up showing and creating a ‘wow’ factor The original 4-speed gearbox works well and is operated via the correct straight gear stick as fitted only to early cars. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Pristine JBW Minilight alloy wheels with new Falken 145/80 R10 tyres have been fitted. Braking to all four wheels is hydraulically operated by a pendant pedal with two leading shoes at the front. The handbrake lever is the correct type with the chrome button. HISTORY FILE Built on the 18th November 1959 this example is one of the most iconic of all the Minis as it was built within the first three months of the public launch date of the 26th August 1959 as confirmed by the Heritage Motor Centre. These early built cars possess a uniqueness with individual build differences before full scale production, standardisation and the ‘facelift’ in October 1960. With only three owners from new this example has a fascinating history all catalogued in the history file. The first owner enjoyed the car for six years before a Mr Mucklejohn purchased the car for his son, Ian, in 1965. Only used by Ian for two years before being hit head-on by a Ford Cortina. Fortunately Ian suffered only minor injuries and even kept the newspaper extract dated the 10th February 1967 where the Cortina driver was fined £10 with a licence endorsement! A Front End number of FE68802 confirms dating of August 1960 to the body after the repairs. While the vehicle was being repaired Ian purchased a Hillman Imp which he preferred to drive so once the Mini was returned it lay idle and unused. In 1999 after 32 years of being off the road Ian decided to have the vehicle restored to ‘as new’ condition with an invoice presented for the privilege of £14,726.90. After 50 years of ownership KGF Classic Cars were delighted to sell the car to the third keeper, Mr Robin Guest who has now decided to sell in order to concentrate on his primary passion, motorcycles. A history file comprising of wonderful period artefacts including letters, photos and period literature are included along with a certificate from the 1959 Mini Register & Mini Magazine identifying this example as a surviving 1959 Mini and thus formed part of the Mini 50th anniversary celebrations.

Dealer options; Durable acrylic headlamp covers, Montego leather steering wheel, tailored Fabric mat set, first aid kit, mudflaps. EXTERIOR This outstanding Montego, owned from ten months old by the only private and utterly fanatical keeper is preserved to an incredible standard. The factory original paintwork in Flame Red, (Code COF), is simply exceptional with a deep glossy shine and polished finish with absolutely no fading. The virtually spotless factory panels are completely free from corrosion or damage, as is the underside having been protected from new with rust proofing treatment. The devoted long term keeper even routinely removed the inner door cards to apply additional wax to the door bottoms, despite the car being strictly garage stored and never ever used in the rain! This unmolested showpiece displays the supplying dealer number plates and the optional acrylic headlamp covers fitted from new. The trim sections are excellent aside from small hairline cracks to the C-pillar covers. Any Montego is now a rare survivor, this example is almost beyond comprehension! INTERIOR A pristine, unaltered and period interior is sure to delight and amaze fans of Austin Rover cars. The original Zenith Cloth trim in Flint, (Code LCG), remains unworn with absolutely no damage whatsoever. The matching colour keyed door cards and headlining are superb, and the cut pile carpets are beautifully preserved having been protected by two sets of mats. All functions and controls operate perfectly and the dashboard and associated switchgear are as new. The fastidious owner even tailor made a cover for the dashboard and sheaths to place over the door lock buttons to protect them from the sun! The factory fitted Phillips R570 radio cassette remains fitted and operational. With a reputation for fragility, the exceptional interior of this cosseted Montego is a credit to its devoted owner. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION This Montego LX features the standard 1598cc OHC four cylinder engine with electronic carburettor control developing 86bhp at 5600rpm. With a top speed of 103mph and 0-60 covered in 11.2 seconds, this car feels lively and surprisingly refined. The engine bay is beautifully clean, unaltered and displays factory panel stampings, plates and even fragile stickers. The five speed transmission is light, smooth and effortless. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The standard 14in wheels wear the original and correct 1.6LX specification hubcaps in perfect order, un-badged as specified by Rover. The 185/65 R14 tyres have good tread remaining and the original Goodyear tyre remains fitted and unused to the spare wheel. The Austin Rover polystyrene circular insert holds the jack, wheel brace and hub cap puller. Diagonally split dual circuit brakes with servo assistance and front discs bring the car up straight and steady. HISTORY FILE Registered new by the Rover Group MCP Department as a company vehicle on the 20th June 1991, the first and only private keeper purchased the car when it was just ten months old on the 23rd April 1992. Rover Main Dealer, Henlys of Northampton, supplied the vehicle to Miss Zoe Waterfield after she specified particularly that she wanted a Flame Red Montego with electric windows, sunroof and central locking! The used vehicle invoice in the colossal history file illustrates the price paid of £6,500 and is accompanied by the Henlys pre-sale checklist and welcome letter. To say that Miss Waterfield is renowned and respected within the Austin-Rover community is a huge understatement, and her dedication to her beloved brand knows no limits with countless visits to Longbridge and even actively protesting the BMW takeover of Rover in January 1994. Her fanatical following even earned her rare and confidential items such as Top Secret ‘Introducing the Austin’ and Pocket Guides held by Austin Rover Sales staff only, all retained in the Henlys wallet alongside the original stamped service booklet, handbooks and dealership literature. Despite the low mileage of just 48,365 and the car being stored throughout each winter, the beautifully presented and chronological history folder is simply huge. Virtually every MOT certificate, invoice, receipt and even a journey log have been kept. Furthermore, there are articles, club membership literature, photographs and awards as well as three sets of keys including the grey master. An unmissable opportunity to acquire one of the best, unmolested and original Montego’s in existence. MOT June 2018, HPI Clear.

We are delighted to offer this beautifully presented Austin Heavy 12 Burnham Saloon onto the market. VX 3960 appears to be very correct and still retains a large amount of originality including its registration mark. The car has spent the past three/four years with one owner in the York, Selby area and over this time has proven completely reliable, usable and comes to us on the button and driving superbly. When initially purchased by the recent owner, the Austin was treated to a new water pump impeller, a new oil pressure gauge, new wiper motor and wiper arms. From the history file with the Austin, we know back in 2011 some major mechanical work was carried out. This included dismantling the engine and rebuilding it as necessary. New parts included gaskets, head studs, valve guides, valves, timing gears, timing chains, manifold studs and nuts and new sump bolts. Further work included fitting a new clutch, stripping and cleaning the Autovac and setting the brakes. VX 3960 drives very well with good steering, efficient brakes and the engine runs and performs beautifully. The four speed gearbox is a delight to use, the 12/4 cruises nicely and feels strong, robust and reliable. The Aus

This stunning Austin A30 Van was built on the 13th October 1955 and supplied new in Westminster Green with Brown trim. The Van was built in RHD format for the home market and sold new by London dealer H.A Saunders Limited. TSK 911 is today still in its original colour with lovely original looking front seats. Our Austin also has the benefit of rear windows and a rear seat, carried out by Restall Brothers, Birmingham in the late 1960’s, a very period upgrade. TSK 911 has recently undergone a major programme of work that included brand new floor pans and a full re-paint. Major mechanical upgrades included fitting a 1098cc Sprite engine, rear axle and front brake discs. The modifications enhance the drive of the Austin, making it much more usable and more suited for regular or daily use. The Austin drives very well with a strong, quick engine, lovely gearbox and it brakes and handles well. The Austin will be sold with a full 12 months MOT, freshly serviced and ready for regular use. Over the past month or so the Austin has covered in the region of 100 miles and has proven totally reliable.

Interested in this vehicle? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us directly by telephone on 01363 83909 The Austin 10/4 Lichfield offered the pre-war buyers from the professional classes that little extra room and horsepower compared with the ubiquitous 'Seven'. The dashboard was well equipped and finished in polished wood, opening front screen, fold-flat boot lid which could accomodate a travelling trunk and 12 volt electrics made this model an immediate success. This London registered example remains in very original and useable condition and was last Mot'd in 2009 since when it has been carefully stored. It starts readily, settles down to a quiet tickover and both clutch and brakes function as they should. Bodywork is solid and paintwork reasonable. An ideal candidate to use and improve as required in the sound knowledge that its value should never diminish. £ 7,500.

1965 Austin Gipsy G4 M15 Pick-Up. Just releasede from a private collection. This Austin has a BMIHT certificate showing build date of 13th April 1965. Bought new by Richard Renfrew of New Farm, Knightcote, Leamington Spa. In service until about 1985 when it was barn stored. Recorded mileage is 30,000. Acquired by the present owner on 13.02.02. The 2199cc petrol engine came from the Austin A70 Hereford car. This Gipsy has the traditional leaf spring suspension. "Flexitor" rubber trailing arm suspension and the "London Taxi" 2178cc diesel engine were options. These vehicles had a strong and durable chassis but the steel bodywork was very prone to rusting. This one was no exception and was fully restored in 2003 where it has remained in a private collection ever since. Production ceased in 1968 with the British Leyland Motor Corporation merger which also encompassed the Rover car company. As Land Rover was a direct competitor and the preferred option the Austin Gipsy was discontinued. This car really is a credit to its former owner and just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands. Please call for any further information. Absolutely any inspection welcome. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Part exchange welcome. Delivery can be arranged.
1960 Austin A40 Farina Countryman MK I 948cc. Farina Grey with a black roof and blue carpets and upholstery. Launched by BMC in 1958 to replace the highly successful Austin A35, the A40 Farina was a strikingly modern car with clean, functional lines penned by Pininfarina of Italy. This beautiful A40 has been cherished and loved with no expense spared. In the midst of all this, BMC introduced their Countryman version in 1959, with what was to be one of the world’s first commercially successful hatchbacks, although the term hatchback didn’t come into common parlance until the early 1970s. Distinguished by its slightly smaller rear side windows and altered roofline, it offered rear passengers a bit more headroom and almost estate car carrying capacity, thanks to its lift-up rear window and flop-down tailgate. Although a popular option at the time, the low survival rate of Countrymans makes them quite a rarity today. Well known to the A40 register, its previous owner had been a leading light in the club and had owned it from 1995 until his passing in 2013. It has been featured in several books, including ‘Cars’ by Stephen Bayley and ‘The Last Real Austin’ by Colin Peck both of which are with the car. The Austin has just received a fresh MOT and no advisories were recorded. The car starts on the button and is a real joy to drive performing exactly as it should. In summary if you want one of the best available then this is well worth a look. We think this is a car that any collector or enthusiast would be pleased to own. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Please contact us for any further information. Delivery to mainland UK included in the asking price. Shipping can be arranged.
This fabulous Austin Mini Mayfair Automatic has covered just 22000 miles from new and had just one owner from 1986 to 2013. D251 GWW was supplied new by Appleyard of Harrogate, first registered on 1st August 1986. The Mini still retains its original Appleyard After Sales Care passport with service book, handbook, consumer guide and entertainment handbooks. Having spent its entire life in Yorkshire, the Mini changed hands for the first time in 2013, heading to an elderly retired gentleman in North London. The car only spent 18 months in the Capital, covering in the region of 500 miles and being treated to over £1000 work to include new engine mountings, new front brake discs and pads, new front calipers, flexi hoses, inner and outer CV boots, new radiator, stabiliser bushes, shock absorbers, steering rack boots, track rod ends and full service to include new HT leads and distributor cap. We sold the Mini to its third owner, a long term regular customer in York who has covered local mileage in the York area, enjoying using the car during summer months with several trips to the Golf Club. We serviced the car and prepared it for a new MOT, finding no significant work being required. Ha
