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
