To many, its designer Alec Issigonis included, the notion that the Mini might have a future as anything other than basic transport was anathema, and the idea of a high-performance version was laughable. One man though, saw it quite differently. Racing car manufacturer John Cooper already knew quite a bit about tuning BMC's A-Series engine - he was running the company's Formula Junior effort at the time - and a test drive in a prototype Mini convinced him of the car's competition potential. The result, launched in September 1961, was the Mini Cooper, a car that offered a size/price/performance package that was nothing short of miraculous. The Mini Cooper soon established its credentials as a rally and race winner, and the stage was set for even faster versions. The first of these - the 1,071cc Mini Cooper 'S' of 1963 - took engine development a stage further and provided the basis for the 971 'S' and 1275 'S' of 1964. The car we offer is an original example of the short-lived and rare 1,071cc Cooper S, built between April 1963 and the end of August 1964. 'YEE 522' was first built on 16th January 1964 and dispatched on the 27th January to Roland C. Bellamy Ltd of Grimsby. Still weari

Designed by Alex Issigonis in 1959, a new concept in car design was born. With a monocoque shell, transversely mounted engine and front wheel drive, the new 'Mini', soon became popular across a broad spectrum of the population. The potential for competition use was soon seen by John Cooper; BMC were finally persuaded by John Cooper and the two worked together in culminating the birth of the Austin Mini Cooper and the Morris Mini Cooper in 1961. Victories in the 1964, 1965 and 1967 Monte-Carlo Rallies set the Mini on the road to fame but probably the greatest publicity was gained from their, somewhat unfair, disqualification for lighting irregularities in the 1966 event after coming in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the 'S', was developed in tandem and released in 1963. Approximately 2,500 Mk.II Cooper S were built making it one of the rarest versions of this very collectible motor car. This particular example is finished in its original colour scheme of Island Blue with a Snowberry White roof and black interior. This charming car was built on 14 th April 1969 and despatched three days later on the 17 th and sold through Joseph Cockshoot and Company of Bury, L

The Morris Minor debuted at the Earls Court Motor Show on 20th September 1948. Designed under the leadership of Alec Issigonis, over 1.3 million examples were manufactured from 1948-1971 and, indeed the 1,000,000 example was sold by Historics in 2015. Initially available as a two-door saloon and convertible, the range was subsequently expanded to include a four-door saloon in 1950 and wood-framed estate. Other changes included a modified dashboard layout with toggle switches, textured steel instrument binnacle and larger convex glove box covers. A different heater completed the interior upgrade whilst the larger, more modern combined front side/indicator light units, common to many BMC vehicles of the time, were fitted to the front wings. This charming example benefits from a full body restoration over the last eight months with the underside under-sealed and Waxoyled. All new rubber seals were used and the rear brakes and cables have been replaced. Alongside new tyres in each corner, it has been fully serviced and runs well.
This superbly presented MKI Mini was first registered on the 14th May 1962 and was supplied brand new in White and allocated the registration mark NOO 440. The Mini was first registered to a lady in Enfield who kept the car seventeen years, selling it to a lady in Peterborough in 1979. The second later owner moved to the Norwich area and eventually parted with the car in 1993 and it was sold by a Norfolk based classic car business in 1994 to its third owner, a gentleman based in Glenrothes. The Mini stayed in the same family until 2010 before selling to the most recent owner, also in Fife, Scotland. NOO 440 comes to us with a comprehensive history file containing copies of all logbooks dating back to 1962, various MOT certificates and an invoice file from the 1990's detail a high level of expenditure. Work from this period includes new steering rack boots, cv boots, track rod ends, Halogen headlight kit, new oil pressure switch, plug leads, front and rear brake shoes, brake cylinders, wheel bearings, subframe bushes, handbrake cable, brake hoses, re-conditioned radious arms, knuckle joints and bushes, new rear shock absorbers, thermostat and thermostat housing, new manifold gasket,
We are delighted to offer this superbly rebuilt, show winning genuine Morris Minor Series MM Lowlight Tourer onto the market. VMF 203 was supplied new by dealership Stewart and Ardern Limited, despatched on the 12th June 1950 and finished in Romain Green with Beige with Green piped upholstery. The Morris still retains its original ‘buff’ brown logbook confirming the Morris was owned by husband and wife in Essex for over twenty years and it comes with a Heritage Certificate confirming all original records. This first Series (MM) was registered on the 3 rd July 1950 and has the lovely early features such as the low headlights, semaphore indicators and split windscreen. Interestingly, just prior to production, but after a large run of chrome bumpers had already been manufactured, Issignonis the designer decided to widen the vehicle by around 4 inches. The bumpers were therefore cut in half and a short painted spacer plate added, as seen on the rear of this car. The most recent owners purchased the Morris in 2009; prior to this the car had just three previous owners. On initial purchase in 2009 a major, extensive restoration programme was started and this included fully stripping the c
This is a highly interesting motor car was previously sold by us around two years ago, selling to a customer in South Wales who has completed in various rallies and events. Over the years we have sourced many rare, interesting vehicles and this is certainly something quite special. Not only does this rare Morris Oxford Empire have a fascinating history, it had travelled the World and comes with a detailed, comprehensive history file. The Morris has only ever had two UK owner, the first successfully toured France on several occasions and in order to achieve this without problem, has kept the car in strong mechanical condition. Our Morris has an ultra rare boat tail style body, original 2513cc, 15.9 h.p (16/40) engine and is capable of driving anywhere proving absolutely ideal for overseas touring and rallies. The Morris Empire Oxford was a designed with the intentions of making a robust vehicle with high ground clearance that was capable of long distance touring, built to endure rough conditions. In July 1927, 250 chassis were exported to the Colonies, most were sent to Australia and New Zealand and some to India and South Africa. The four cylinder side valve engine had a bore of 80
This delightful early Morris Bullnose Cowley is a car we know very well having sold it in 2010 and again in 2015. In 2010 an elderly customer of ours in York bought the Bullnose and as part of the preparation work we overhauled the switchbox, re-conditioned the steering box and both the magneto and dynamo were rebuilt and re-wired. Over the five years the Bullnose was not really used. It was continuously cleaned, was regularly fired up and kept on blocks in the owner’s workshop. In 2015, we sold the car to another long term customer, this time in Lincolnshire. We stripped and cleaned the carb, cleaned the fuel lines, replaced the fuel tap and carried out a service. Once the Morris began to get use, a differential issue came to light and we removed the rear axle and diff and at a cost of over £1000 has it overhauled. Since then the Bullnose has been used on the show and rally circuit and has performed faultlessly in almost two years of ownership. It is now a superb driving, reliable and wonderfully usable Bullnose. EL 6583 was first registered on 29 th November 1922 and is known as the Model MC2, 2-Seat Tourer. It also has the useful rear dickey seat that can carry two passengers or

The history of this revolutionary motorcar is well known, its impact socially, culturally and mechanically is well documented. The Swinging Sixties, free love, The Beatles, Twiggy and the Mini are inexorably combined to represent an era that is remembered with great fondness by many people. The side story is the Mini's impact on motorsport and this is no less extraordinary. Issigonis' friend John Cooper, owner of the Cooper Car Company and designer and builder of Formula One and rally cars, saw the potential of the Mini for competition. The original 848cc engine was given a longer stroke to increase capacity to 997cc, boosting power from 34bhp to 55bhp. The car featured a racing-tuned engine, twin SU carburettors, a closer-ratio gearbox and front disc brakes, uncommon at the time in a small car. A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the 'S', was then developed in tandem and released in 1963, featuring a 1071cc engine. The Mini Cooper S earned acclaim with Monte Carlo Rally victories in 1964, 1965 and 1967. Minis were initially placed first, second and third in the 1966 rally as well, but were disqualified after a badly judged decision by the French judges. Huge demand was also genera
1969 Morris Minor Van Special A special with van origins, traveller cab and grp DOMI-like rear Very good condition throughout, excellent cab MOT, V5C and some history 1275cc engine and 5 speed gearbox Rare, very useable, great fun A really interesting Morris Minor Van Special, from what we can tell, consists of a specially lengthened van chassis the chassis number begin MAV5 to confirm the van origins to which a Traveller cab was fitted along with a GRP rear, created in small numbers a company in Lincolnshire and bearing a remarkable resemblance to the DOMI de Luxe van that was built in Denmark. A 1275cc BMC engine is fitted, coupled to a Ford Sierra five speed gearbox and disc brakes are fitted to the front with servo. The cockpit is standard Morris Traveller but with a good quality wood rimmed steering wheel. The vehicle is thus rare, yet highly usable and enormous fun. A definite head turner enhanced further by the period Morris sun visor. Opinions differ as to the origins of this van, what is clear is that it is not an original DOMI but may well look very similar.

FOR SALE A Morris Minor 1000 De Luxe Charles Ware Convertible with just 3,473 miles EQUIPMENT Mono-construction body, full width one-piece bumpers front and rear, bumper over-riders Triplex safety glass all round, one piece curved windscreen, hinged ventilator panels in front doors, door locks with flush fitting pull-out type handles, fresh air intake heater, driver and passenger crushable sun visors, Leathercloth upholstery, pile carpets, front and rear ashtrays, safety driving mirror, glovebox, full width parcel tray, windscreen washers, speedometer, fuel gauge, oil pressure warning light, dirty oil filter warning light, Windtone horn. Dealer options; Petrol locking cap, wheel discs. Accessories; Boot luggage rack, front seat-belts. EXTERIOR This beautiful Morris Mini Minor is finished in traditional period Smoke Grey and boasts a wonderful deep shine to the quality finish. This example is structurally and cosmetically superb owing to the exceptionally low mileage of 3,473 miles and having been subject to a recent professional refurbishment at a Morris Minor specialist. The chromework to the original bumpers has become slightly thin and light pitting can be seen on the rear light shrouds. All remaining chrome pieces and trim are excellent including the original overriders, unique to the Deluxe model. The glass, rubbers and lenses are all intact and present very well, as do the correct Minor 1000 badges fitted to the boot lid and front wings. A brand new hood in cream with matching tonneau was fitted in 2013 and remains as new. A charming and exceptional example of this quintessentially English countryside tourer. INTERIOR The original Leathercloth upholstery trim in Blue Grey is a fantastic compliment to the exterior colour scheme and has a lovely sense of basic no frills motoring, long since forgotten in today’s modern equivalents! Incredibly, the factory coverings to the seats and matching door cards are commensurate with the mileage and have been preserved with only very minor age related creasing. A tiny inch long slit to the lower driver’s door card is just visible. The expensive and correct blue replacement carpeting is pristine. The 16½ inch Bakerlite steering wheel with Morris badge is completely intact and shows slight natural aging. The large instrument nacelle housing all the warning lights and gauges functions perfectly as do the pull switches exactly as Morris intended. An iconic motoring delight, perfect for whimsical open top drives. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The water cooled, overhead-valve four-cylinder engine has a cubic capacity of 1098cc and produces 48bhp at 5100rpm. The engine starts instantly at the flick of the key and is whisper quiet. The engine bay is a delight with original plates and badges remaining, and the green A-Series engine block is the correct British Standard (381c) 223 Middle Bronze Green. The 4-speed gearbox with synchromesh on 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears operates well. Thoroughly useable and ready for classic motoring enjoyment! WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Disc-type steel wheels with optional chrome disc embellishers are beautifully painted in correct Old English White. Five radial Firestone F-560 tyres of 145 R14 size are fitted and the spare is housed in the lower boot floor alongside the original red jack and wheel brace. Braking to all four wheels is hydraulically operated by a pendant pedal with front 8in and rear 7in drums, basic but effective. HISTORY FILE This wonderful example was registered new on 25th July 1968 as a Morris Minor 1000 Saloon to first owner, Miss Eileen Haydon, who kept the car for a remarkable 44 years until 2012! After only minimal dry usage, the car was garage stored when Miss Haydon ceased driving due to advancing years despite having motability aids fitted whereby it remained for some years, and the read mileage of just 3,473 has been confirmed by the family to be correct. During this time, the garage roof partially collapsed resulting in cosmetic damage to the cars roof. In February 2012, neighbour Mr Al Rodens purchased the car and embarked upon a process on recommissioning the Morris and bringing it into working order. Later that year, the third and last registered owner, Mr Mick Apps, purchased the car and commissioned renowned and established specialists, Charles Ware’s Morris Minor Centre, to professionally convert the car to a convertible. This was undertaken in 2013 with invoices in the history file from them totalling thousands. Completing the superb history file is an original workshop manual, driver’s handbook and sales brochure. This beautiful car is the epitome of British summer classic motoring and will stand up to scrutiny and delight any traditional classic enthusiast. MOT March 2018, Tax Exempt, HPI Clear.

When the Mini Cooper was launched in September 1961, the Mini itself was just two years old and had been available only with an 848cc engine. Within the next two years and nine months, no fewer than five Mini Cooper variants were to be offered. Indeed, for a spell in 1964, between early June and the end of August, the 998cc Cooper and all three Cooper S models (1071, 970 and 1275) were in production simultaneously. The original is considered an icon of 1960s British popular culture. Its space-saving transverse engine front-wheel drive layout, allowing 80 percent of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage, influenced a generation of car makers. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T, and ahead of the Citroën DS and Volkswagen Beetle. This distinctive two-door car was designed for British Motor Corporation by Sir Alec Issigonis. It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants in England, the Victoria Park/Zetland British Motor Corporation factory in Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain, Belgium, Chile, Italy, Malta, Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela and Yugoslavia.
