RJH Cars have this incredible MSA Approved Category 1 Mini Cooper. This delightful car was first built in April 1964 and was registered to its first keeper on the 01.06.1964. The second registered owner of the car acquired it on the 14.03.1988. The original owner was a 60’s rally star who brought it to compete in the Motoring News Rally Championship and all the local rallies around mid wales and used the car up until retiring it in the early seventies. We have on file a Heritage Certificate confirming it is a Morris Mini Cooper and also a full photographic record of the work being done to car along with invoices covering the work done.
