Early 1982 Austin Morris Mini HL 1000cc - Beautiful, Recently Restored and Rust Free Example (Tax & MOT Exempt)

Having been feathered with love and attention, this little Mini has recently emerged from what is essentially an old gentleman’s Mini factory where he rebuilds two or three Mini’s each year and has done so for over ten years. She is a wonderful example of a rare early 1982 Austin Morris Mini 1000 HL.  We have detailed the restoration below, first discussing her underneath and then her mechanics before proceeding to her exterior and interior.

1. All New Underneath

Having new subframes, new floors and new inner and outer sills underneath, you can have peace of mind that she is solid. She also has a new exhaust and new brake lines (See photographs).

2. Mechanically Prepared and Ready to Enjoy

This little Mini is ready to enjoy. By ready to enjoy we mean that she has been serviced, professionally tuned and MOT’d with no advisories. The service includes the correct Millers classic Mini oil, a new oil filter and NGK spark plugs as well as new Silicone HT leads and a brake service. Being professionally tuned her performance is optimised and when combined with her 800kg weight and the exceptional renowned rally winning handling of a Mini, she provides for terrific and/or terrifying fun.

3. 12 Months MOT, Tax Exempt & MOT Exempt (But Better to Have the MOT)

Being such an early example, she is MOT and Tax exempt. This means no MOT is required and road tax is free, saving you stress and money. That being said, she is supplied with 12 months MOT and no advisories for your peace of mind.

4. Rust Free Outside, All New Chrome-work & Alloys

Having been stripped to a shell and restored with the help of a reputable body shop, she is rust free so that you can have peace of mind. Gleaming in the sunlight, most of her chrome work is brand new and her alloy wheels have been reconditioned and fitted with new tyres (I think, would have to check).

5. Classic Mini Inside

Inside she hasn’t been restored, but is very nice and clean and just has minimal signs of age.

6. Other Information

She is also HPI clear and her odometer reads 63,000 miles.

Altogether, you will love her and she is just a wonderful little rust free Mini that has been loved and restored, she is ready to enjoy and properly prepared.

Does She Have any Flaws?

Not really.

In the video she has two small dents from storage in her passenger wing, however we have had these professionally removed by a dent man and so there is nothing to worry about.

Her spotlights are brand new and lovely, but they aren’t wired to a switch and if you wanted to have them wired up our auto-electrician would charge £145. We would have had this done, but wanted to keep the purchase price down.

Otherwise, if you looked closely you will find two small paint chips on her body, one is next to her windscreen and one is on her drivers wing. But then again, this feels overly critical considering her age and condition.

Restored 1982 Austin Morris Mini 1000 HL - MOT & Tax Exempt

  • 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.
