For sale a 1969 historic Morris Cooper rally car This is a genuine Mini Cooper with full Cooper S spec. Being historic the car is exempt Tax & MOT, although I still MOT it, which runs out 10 April 2020. The car was built by Bill Richards to historic rally regulations and is fully compliant and ready to compete. It has recently been tuned on Neil Slark’s rolling road with 84bhp. The previous owner was a retired Lucas auto electrician and made a custom loom for the car, including the fuses, relays and instruments on the works dash. I have 4 large folders of build photos and receipts from the previous 2 owners, these total nearly £20,000. The car also comes with spare brand new fully adjustable suspension and also some assorted spares. In excellent condition throughout and drives and handles superbly. I am only selling as I am looking to buy a Lotus Elan, £24,995 ONO.

Only the best quality parts and most reputable people have been used in this build. The car drives superbly and handles equally as well, it has been very well setup. The Yokohama A032R tyres are very sticky and the carbon brakes stop it very quickly. This is a very reluctant sale, I have never raced or rallied the car, nor am I going to get time too, hence the sale.
