    • ModelMini 1000
    • FE Cat descThe Mini came about because of a fuel shortage caused by the 1956 Suez Crisis. Petrol was rationed in the UK, sales of large cars slumped and the market for German bubble cars boomed, even in Britain where imported cars were still a rarity at the time. The Fiat 500 was also becoming increasingly popular. Alec Issigonis, who had been working for Alvis, had been recruited back to BMC in 1955 with a brief to design a range of technically advanced family cars in the same innovative spirit as his earlier Morris Minor to complement BMC's existing conventional models. Issigonis had set out design projects for three cars; large and small family cars and a very small economy car. With Lord's task to produce a bubble car competitor, work on the Mini became the priority. This one-owner Mini was purchased from Henlys in Barnes on 3rd October 1979 at a cost of £2,884.60. Having been ‘Ziebarted’ from new, the underside of this car is still like new. The originality of this Mini has to be seen to be fully appreciated, even the quality control stickers are on the inside of the rear brake backplates; these normally come off as soon as the car is used in the rain. The original service books are present together with the original invoice and even the spare keys. This exceedingly low mileage Mini is fitted with an automatic gearbox which, we are advised, operates correctly. Finished in white with brown velour interior, this Mini 1000 is supplied with a V5 registration document together with a full years MoT test certificate.

    • ModelMorris Minor Pick-up 'Fast Road'
    • FE Cat descWith Austin and Morris both being part of BMC, the Minor-based Morris commercials were also marketed as the Austin 6cwt and Austin 8cwt with a closed van and open pick-up versions. They were designed for commercial use with small businesses in mind, although many made their way to larger corporations. The van version was popular with the Post Office, with both the van and the pick-up differing from the monocoque construction of the Saloon and Traveller variant by having a separate chassis. They also differed in details such as telescopic rear dampers, stiffer rear leaf springs and lower ratio differentials to cope with the heavier loads. This Austin Morris Pick-up is presented in blue with black trim and was the project of our vendor, he wanted a fun yet practical vehicle and the result is more fun than you can shake a stick at with the ability to still load the rear with the farms hay! The engine has been replaced with a 1340cc unit including fast road cam and a large single SU carburettor, this combined to a tubular exhaust system and a 3.77:1 differential turns this mundane looking utility vehicle to a road going hooligan. Due to the added power and speed, the front brakes were upgraded to disc brakes and the whole car painted and trimmed well. Although well loved by our vendor he now requires something larger... perhaps a fast road Transit is next! Supplied with a V5C registration document, this Austin badged pick-up is rare and offered for sale without reserve.

    • ModelMini Cooper ‘S’ Mk. I (1275cc)
    • FE Cat descDesigned by Alec 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', as it was commonly known, soon became popular across a broad spectrum of the population. Introduced in February 1964, the 1275 Mini Cooper S, with its torquey engine, has long been seen as the ultimate 'S' and is currently still the most sought after version for most buyers and owners. Visually the same as the 1071cc 'S', the 1275cc was fitted with hydrolastic suspension along with the rest of the Mini range in late 1964. From early 1966, the extra fuel tank and oil cooler became standard items. The 1275cc 'S' then remained in production pretty much unchanged until September 1967 when the Mk. II version was launched. This original UK supplied, righthand drive, Mini Cooper ‘S’ was first registered on 10th February 1966. Having been stored for many years, this Mini is in barn find condition and will require a total restoration. It appears the Recaro seats have been fitted from new and it certainly looks like everything is present and correct with the car although, rest assured, she needs a lot more than a T-Cut and polish! Supplied with an old style registration document denoting the registration number of 4859 DG which is believed to have been on the car from new. Austin Mini Cooper ’S’ prices have soared in recent years and this 1275cc example with twin fuel tanks is a great project.

    • ModelAtlantic Convertible
    • FE Cat descThe Atlantic was one of the first post-war cars engineered from scratch by Austin, almost certainly influenced by a 1946 Pininfarina-bodied Alfa Romeo cabriolet. The Atlantic was designed specifically to appeal to North American tastes, featuring up-to-the-minute detailing and the then unheard of luxury of hydraulically powered windows. As its final party trick, the centre section of the three piece, wrap around, rear window, could be lowered into the boot, for added ventilation by a remote winder above the front windscreen. Few people in the car's native Britain would have ever seen anything like the futuristically-styled Atlantic before and certainly not from Austin. This righthand drive Austin is finished in Old English White with red leather interior. Owned by the same family for 30 years, this Atlantic convertible has benefitted from a full restoration including the fitment of a new hood. We are advised the 2660cc engine runs well and offers a brisk performance. Supplied with a buff logbook, handbooks and a collection of receipts, these Austins with their retro styling are a great way to enjoy the summer months ahead.
