1972 Morris Mini 850

Classics  /   /  By Tony Piff  /  By Tony Piff

Americans are familiar with the Mini Cooper and perhaps the Austin Mini, but over the decades many companies around the world produced their own licensed versions. This ’72 Morris is a New Zealand market car that was recently imported to South Carolina. The funky cream-of-mushroom paint looks to be in great condition and is reportedly original. The exterior color is upstaged only by the interior, upholstered in oh-so-‘70s split-pea vinyl.

These cars look tiny alongside modern traffic, but they enjoy a reputation for excellent handling and are a blast to zip around downtown. This one is said to run “perfect.” The seller says that it is totally rust-free and includes pics of the undercarriage to confirm.

The big headache with vintage Minis is getting them registered, as they were only imported into the states for a short time. There may be issues with the VIN and title, so check with your local DMV before bidding. See the listing here.
