MORRIS MINI 1000 1969 (1969)




Enthusiasts with a passion for motoring royalty and real world driving fun that is unique to Mini’s will be bowled over by chassis number 054562. Fastidiously restored, the car is in show condition inside, outside and underneath. It’s beautiful Sandy Beige exterior contrasts wonderfully with the newly trimmed and vibrant Tartan Red leather seats, new carpets and roll cage that has been painted to match the exterior bodywork. The dash is set off with a Cooper S 130MPH speedo, oil pressure gauge, water temperature gauge and Race Tech rev counter. The whole package combined looks amazing and is entirely in keeping with the spirit of the era.
The car has had 5 owners from new and has one of the best body shells we have seen in a very long time. The front wings and bonnet are carbon fibre and fit superbly. The car was re-assembled with all new rubbers, seals, trims, badges, lights and bumpers and every nut and bolt has been meticulously restored to ensure total usability. VRX 930H wanted for nothing during it’s restoration which managed to achieve the really tricky balancing act or delivering a thrilling drive whilst also retaining the cars stunning period looks. The addition of “The Italian Job” headlight grills, single bonnet strap and cheeky 5×10 Minilite’s provide the finishing touches.

The story of the cars restoration was featured in the February 2009 edition of Mini World with a detailed article and front cover photo.
Approximately 500 miles ago the engine was completely rebuilt and now delivers 126 BHP and 115 ft lbs of torque, giving an amazing drive and engine roar that will make you grin from ear to ear.
