Mk1 or Mk2 Cooper...

Post by WMU 211G »

As above, looking for a good, solid, usable and hopefully rust free Mk1 or Mk2 Cooper, not a project, budget is £20k, preference is for a Mk1 but a Mk2 will still do nicely.

Don't really mind what colour combo it is and period mods are fine.

Cheers, Nidge ;)

In all the excitement and chinwagging I forgot to take any photos Mark! It's a September '68 Mk2 Morris Cooper in snowberry white & black with original factory recliners, S brakes, pretty standard engine etc, restored a few years ago with a complete new floor, boot floor, sills, A-panels, wings etc, all paid for just needs collecting. My Mrs showed me the for sale ad last night in the latest MCR mag and I rang the owner up straight away, did the deed this morning, job done ;)

Wasn't expecting to bag anything this quick!


PS : any mad bugger on here want to buy a Maserati Biturbo...? :lol:

Thanks! Restored by Chris Spennewyn, I met the seller at Chris's workshop and had a good look at one of his kosher Abingdon Works Ss and various other stuff, then we went round to see the Cooper at the owner's place a few miles away. It's not been used much this year so needs a good run out. Can't wait to get my sticky mitts on it and start enjoying the ownership, I've got some nice period goodies to throw at it in my stash. Should be going to Mini In The Park and Stanford Hall in it.

Bloody Minis, can't seem to give them up!

The standard steel wheels and bus like steering wheel are coming off and some nicer number plates will be going on for a start. My Mrs likes it because she thinks Morris's are always faster than Austins... ;)
