Extremely rare Mk III Morris Mini Cooper S
This Morris Cooper ‘S' Mk III is 1 of only 792 manufactured for the British home market, and according to its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust letter, was finished on 25th January 1971. It has covered 29,000 miles in the hands of three owners and has benefited from a full and complete nut and bolt restoration by an ex-BMC mechanic, completed in 2014.
The bodywork was taken back to bare metal and was professionally painted to a high standard. The car now looks splendid in its Blaze Red coachwork with a Black roof, gold wheels and spot/fog lamps. The original blue vinyl interior has been fully restored and looks superb. The 1275cc Cooper ‘S' engine (12H) has been professionally rebuilt and fully lightened and balanced with a flowed and ported cylinder head, road/race camshaft, new twin 1.5” SUs, a Stage 2 manifold and a free-flow exhaust system, and now produces 80.5 bhp on unleaded fuel.
The extent of the restoration cannot be understated. The entire suspension was replaced and converted to rubber cones, with new Bilstein dampers front and rear, ‘Adjust a ride' suspension and new brakes all around. The new front and rear sub-frames have been powder coated, and the underside rust protected and painted Blaze Red. Professionally rewired with a new, period correct, wiring loom and fuse box, it's also fitted with period correct Cooper S wheel rims, new period Dunlop tyres, and ‘Group Two' wheel arches with chrome trim.
A huge history file complete with a photographic record of the work undertaken and all the relevant invoices is supplied with this stunning Mini. The car has covered less than 500 miles since the rebuild and has a fresh MOT Certificate valid until October 2017. There are original registration documents in the file from previous owners, along with old tax discs and a Cooper ‘S' handbook. A beautiful and very collectable Mini Cooper ‘S that will turn heads wherever you go.

About usWelcome to G.C. Motors.
G.C. Motors is a family run company, established in 1968 when it moved into its present address in Swanley. We always enjoyed the Mini and had a Mini Centre in Green Street Green, near Orpington, Kent, way back in the 70's, but due to redevelopment by a large supermarket chain, we had to look again at our business. We decided to use the Swanley showroom as our Mini Centre, where we continued to buy and sell Minis although they were never in the same league as the ones that were to follow throughout the 90's and early 21st century.
In 1990 Rover re introduced the 1300 Cooper and things really began to move in the Mini world. People started to show a lot of interest in the car once more, they customised, modified and personalised their Minis and a whole new generation of people came back to enjoy this icon of British Motoring. The Mini is not just enjoyed in Britain but across the whole world, we have customers who have come from Australia, USA, Hong Kong and Mexico, to mention just a few of the countries that love the car.
Our Stock: We carry the largest Mini stock in the country, around 125 at any one time, mostly from 1990-2001 but we do get lots of older ones. Some of the older stock, are ready to go, some need restoration, among these are early vans, pickups, MKI and MKII's, but we also have some wonderfully rare model Minis including Wood and Pickets, early Coopers and even the odd ERA. See our stock list on our website.
You will not be disappointed, the range of minis we have for sale is massive. We even have a 1990 Mini in stock with mileage of just 31 miles.
We also sell Motorcycles, Scooters, Pit Bikes and Accessories and are approved dealers for lots of quality brands.
