Description

  • 1960 Morris Mini-Minor for sale

  • 19,000 miles from new

  • Original service book and sales invoice

  • Totally original condition and never welded

Very early examples of the ground-breaking Mini are particularly sought after, and few survivors will be as original as this exceptional 1960 Morris Mini-Minor.

Built during the first full year of production, it was invoiced to its first owner – Miss E Muxlow of Sleaford in Lincolnshire – on 1 October 1960. Miss Muxlow bought it via Holland Bros Ltd, the local BMC distributor, which had a garage on Carre Street, Sleaford. The original invoice is still part of the car’s remarkable history file and shows that the Morris Mini-Minor cost her a total of £558 9s 8d, against which she was offered £75 as part-exchange on her old car. 

An accompanying receipt shows that Miss Muxlow paid the balance on 2 November 1960, and the file even includes the car’s Maintenance Service Voucher Book. This records regular servicing during its early years, up to 17 March 1965, when it had covered 5990 miles.

It’s thought that the Mini remained in the Sleaford area even after it had passed to subsequent owners in the 1980s and beyond. It was used sparingly – it has still covered only 19,000 miles – but its ‘timewarp’ condition is testament to the fact that it has obviously been diligently maintained. 

The paintwork, for example, is original, as are the front and rear subframes. The 848cc engine has never been removed and the bodywork has never been welded. The interior is also untouched and charming early touches abound, such as the floor-mounted starter button. The car even comes with the optional wicker baskets that offered extra storage beneath the rear seats in the compact cabin. 

Now being offered for sale at the Classic Motor Hub, this Morris Mini-Minor comes with a Driver’s Handbook, a copy of the AA Members Handbook for 1966-67, and the original Unipart anti-freeze sticker is even still in the windscreen. It represents a rare chance to acquire an unrestored, perfectly preserved and totally original example of this timeless classic.
