Auctioneers Notes: The vendor has owned this car for the last 5 years and is selling only because of lack of storage facilities. ( He has 2 other Minis plus a Morris Minor Conv.) She is a truly exceptional 997cc Cooper, one of a handful left. I am told there are only 25 cars of this model remaining. To find a car totally restored by the proprietor of Mini Works for his own personal use – see the article he wrote in Mini World – is exceptional. May be viewed by appointment.
This total restoration was carried out by Mini Works of Edinburgh for the owner, Simon Drew, for his own personal transport. This company is renowned for its quality of workmanship in the Mini fraternity. In the Magazine, Mini World, Simon Drew wrote a 3 page article explaining what he did to the car – see appendix.
There is a file on various correspondences with the DVLA to retain the original registration number, you will note that the car was registered in 06 due to the DVLA losing the original file, luckily they gave the original number back. Most importantly, we have confirmation of this Mini Cooper’s authenticity carried out by Mini Cooper Register (see appendix) and, please note, that the hon. President is John N Cooper. Also there is a BMI Heritage Trust Certificate (see appendix) confirming that the car was built on 28th November 1962 and delivered to Carlaw Cars Ltd Glasgow on 17th January 1963. There is a comprehensive invoice file from 2006 to February 2017. Please note there is a record of the restoration on disc. Also we have an MOT history file from August 29th 06 to 11th February 2017, mileage 66,009. Present mileage to-date on 1st August 2018 is 66,614 which means the car has covered 8,540 miles since the total restoration 12 years ago. Finally the Mini comes with the original handbook and some photographs of the restoration.
