1965 Morris Mini Moke genuine Cooper S powered * Superb * For Sale

This amazing little Moke is being offered for sale with a genuine Cooper S engine and gearbox fitted.

This Moke has it all and was built by a professional motorsport technician who is also a Mini collector / builder.

In 1964 BMC produced two 'S' models, the 970 S and 1275 S aimed at the under-1, 000cc and under-1, 300cc BSCC race classes respectively. The road-going 970 'S' was a real 'Homologation Special' with its 'revvy' little short-stroke engine producing over 65bhp. It was expensive to manufacture, so BMC made it a 'special-order' model, and consequently, only around 1000 Austin or Morris units were produced.

This makes this Moke ultra rare - probably one of one. The quality is as I say "Superb".

ULEZ compliant this is totally at home in the City or Sennen Cove.
