Classic Coopers Come to Charterhouse

Two classic Mini Cooper’s are coming to the Charterhouse classic car auction on 6th July at The Haynes international Motor Museum.

“With more than 5.3 million classic Mini’s made they are still a regular sight on our roads.” Commented Richard Bromell. “However, it is the rare Cooper versions which can command the most money.”

In the Charterhouse auction are two very different classic Mini Cooper’s, with one being an early car and the other one of the last to roll off the production line.

First there is a 1965 Morris Mini Cooper. Having been owned for the past 40 years this has spent 35 of those years on display at The Haynes International Motor Museum. Painted in tartan red with a white roof this Cooper came with 54 bhp when new and today is estimated at £18,000-20,000.

Next there is a 2001 Mini Cooper S. This is one of the last 50 John Cooper Works Mini’s produced and is number 14 of the 50. This is the most powerful classic Cooper made with 90 bhp on tap. With under 13,000 miles and just two loving owners from new this coveted Cooper is estimated at £23,000-25,000.

Charterhouse are now taking further entries for this classic car auction on 6th July and their classic motorcycle auction on 29th June with both auction being held at the prestigious Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford.
