This 1970 Morris Mini gives you that original Mini style and feeling that makes it an icon. But as you look over the whole car, you can see that it also gives you some added distinction and more conveniences that adds to an even larger owner benefit.

We know you love the look of these original Minis. This one is a particularly striking example with a glossy black presentation. Even the Minilite-style wheels were done to match for a very cool/contemporary look. It's easy to see the contrasting rocker stripes in white that announce this is a 1275 GT - one of the sportiest Minis of its day. And so it earns the Hella lights on the front end. And speaking of the front end, we bet you noticed this one is a little different. The GT model got the same updated face as the Mini Clubman. It makes for a distinctive car that also is still unmistakably a Mini.

Inside, you can really see that they gave this some nice updates. After all, every Mini knew how to maximize its interior space, but where the early ones were sparse, this is quite elegant. You have high-back bucket seats up front with excellent bolstering; there's wood grain trim on the dash; and you have an effective heat/defrost system. There are also some nice modern upgrades, like the stereo is now an AM/FM/CD unit. And a horn added to make this little guy sound like a freight train! This is a desirable right-hand drive model with the gauges directly in front of you. So it's an upgrade over the early Mini without losing that instant cool factor of people seeing you drive from the other side of the car.

The 1275 GT name has to do with the 1275cc four-cylinder engine. This was the largest and most powerful Mini motor of the time. It's still an A-Series engine like the rest of the Mini line, and it's a well-known and widely used powerplant that found a home in plenty of British vehicles. That makes parts availability rather easy. So you get a balance of the best power while still keeping within the steadfast Mini image. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission gives you full control of this little guy. Combine the GT's quick nature with front disc brakes, grippy Yokohama tires, and steering that is so exact it feels telepathic, and you've got in your hands on all the reasons why people are passionate about driving these Minis.

This is the classic style you love with the right updated packaging, too. So if you want a vintage icon that's also much easy to enjoy, call today!
