Morris Mini - Cooper S Mk1 Radford Sand - Year 1964 - 31 miles
|Type||Cooper S Mk1 Radford|
Here is a very rare Morris Mini Cooper S Mk1 "RADFORD" from 1964!
Harold Radford was the greatest preparer of Mini in the 60s (a real precursor), he quickly understood that the Mini was a trendy car and that the stars were snapping up. He therefore offered a personalization and modernization service to make them even more luxurious.
Peter Sellers was the first to order one then all the Beatles followed, depending on the model a Radford cost between the price of a Jaguar E-Type and the price of an Aston Martin DB5!
All the Radfords were painted with colors from the Rolls Royce catalogue, inside there was a dashboard worthy of the most beautiful cars, descending windows (originally the windows were sliding!), a woolen carpet, a Benelite grille with a fog lamp and a high beam lamp, Marchal parking lights, chrome moldings from Riley and a whole bunch of little details.
The model that we present to you belonged to Lord Plummer of St. Marylebone and has only 31,000 original miles! We have in our possession the first gray card (old green log book), old MOT (English technical inspections), photos from the 70s and photos of the car before restoration
During its restoration, only the rear apron was replaced (all the rest of the sheet metal is original). The mechanics have been completely redone and we find absolutely all the real engine parts of the 1071 (AEG151 block, 22G190 gearbox, AEG163 cylinder head, etc.). The running gear has been treated with epoxy paint, all the silent blocks, hoses and bearings are new.
The interior is in an incredible state of preservation, everything is original, even the woolen carpet! A little extra, the rear seat is foldable (Radford option requires).
The absolute Grail! Attention you will be able to sell a kidney to be able to acquire it but it is really worth it :-)
