After owning minis for 45 plus years l could hardly pass up the chance when offered  to buy a pair of genuine  cooper S's plus a shed full of parts to go with them . The sellers  father had died very suddenly about 10 years ago and they were put into storage where they have been ever  since . However they have  been unused for probably nearer 35 years as one of them still has it's last  rego sticker on the window from 1984  . They are both English cars the one on the left being a 1966 mk1 and the one on the right being a 1968 mk2 ............these mk2's are very rare here , l've never seen one in the flesh before . Also , this mk2 was imported by the Dunedin city council  in 1968 ,  1 of 4  brought in by them  as a ministry of transport car .   The black and white pic is of my car being used to set up a speed trap by the looks of things by the constabulary .  Not sure what l'm going to do with them yet but will probably have them restored and keep them , l dont do bodywork or painting myself but would rebuild  the engines/boxes .

Love Minis. Had couple years ago. Had a Moke in hay shed for 20 yrs or so , sold it 6 months back. Didn't restore and have to scale down. Good luck with them
