1. Beautifully Restored

Having been wonderfully restored, this is a beautiful example of an early 1968 Mini Mk2 1000cc that is mechanically perfect, entirely corrosion free and just beautiful.


2. Owned 44 Years

Purchased brand new by Constance Ballard in 1968, Constance drove her for 32 years and her family kept this Mini for 44 years. The current keeper has owned her for seven years, using her frequently and is only selling her because he needs the garage to restore another classic. She’s always lived in the Nottingham area.


3. 12 Months MOT & MOT / Tax Exempt

She comes with 12 months MOT despite being historic status MOT and Tax Exempt, has been professionally tuned to optimise her performance and has the upgrades that you want to see including an electronic ignition and disc brakes. She is ready to enjoy.


4. All of the Early Features

Being a Mk2 (one of the rarest and most sought after models produced between 1967 and 1969) she has all of those marvellous early features including; large external door hinges, smaller doors, sliding windows, no wing mirrors; swinging number plates, the early interior, wire pull door handles, larger cockpit, central speedometer, 10” alloy wheels and hydrolastic suspension.


Accordingly, this is an opportunity to own a beautifully restored example of a 1968 Morris Mini MK2 1000cc that is mechanically perfect, corrosion free and an example that has been loved and cherished throughout its life.

Age Related Imperfections

As stated above, she is restored, mechanically perfect and corrosion free and the only notable age related imperfection to note would be her door gaps being slightly proud as is common on many Mini’s.


Restored 1968 Morris Mini MK2 (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.
