1981 Austin Morris Mini HL - Rebuilt From the Ground Up, Nut & Bolt to a Near Brand New Showroom Standard
Rebuilt, brand new, nut and bolt from the ground up, this is a beautiful, pretty much immaculate, showroom condition example of a very rare 1981 Austin Morris Mini HL 998cc. Such rebuild is fully documented with photographs and an extensive record of extraordinary spending. We don’t think you would find a better example.

Driving beautifully, her engine and gearbox have been completely rebuilt to a high performance specification with upgrades including a race and rally Kent Mega Mini Cam-shaft and a Mini Sport reconditioned unleaded converted head.  Being a very rare early Mini she is MOT & tax exempt, however she is supplied with 12 months Mot with no advisories, is mechanically perfect and has been professionally tuned to optimise her performance.

Finished with a Superflow twin box side exit performance exhaust system, Paddy Hopkirk Spax 50th Anniversary Ltd Edition adjustable shock absorbers and 10” 60’s alloy wheels to name a few expensive extras, this is just the perfect Mini.

Having lived in heated storage for five years, owned first by an uncle and then his nephew, she now needs a new home due to the loss of heated storage.
The only possible defects are two small dings on her body from storage, you likely wouldn't notice them.

Almost Brand New 1980 Austin Morris Mini (1000cc)

  • We guarantee that your Mini will be mechanically perfect at the time of the sale. Mechanically perfect means that your Mini will be roadworthy with a recent MOT, that everything on your Mini will work correctly and that your Mini will be ready to enjoy.


    However, it is important to note that Mini's are classic cars opposed to brand new cars, classic cars will have wear and tear on all parts opposed to being built to a new standard and accordingly they  will require ongoing maintenance and we cannot be held liable for any ongoing maintenance after the time of the sale. That being said, we have a dedicated phone line to assist you in maintaining your Mini and sourcing replacement parts.
