1964 Mini Cooper S 1071 Mk1

Description

By 1963 the BMC Competition department knew what they wanted to do with the Mini. Their efforts culminated in the 1963 Austin Cooper S and Morris Cooper S. Besides a host of upgrades, the primary difference was a specially cast engine block and cylinder head that was more suitable for racing.

The first Cooper S models used a 1071cc engine with a special nitrided steel crankshaft. Factory upgrades included larger front disc brakes, a vacuum-assisted brake booster and offset steel wheels which were widened to 4½ inches by 1964. Despite only having around 75 bhp on tap, the Minis were very successful in Group 2 Rally racing, winning the Monte Carlo Rally outright.

This charming car was completed in 1964 and having covered 12993 miles is said to be in original specification of green with green with off white interior. Having been subject to a concourse restoration this Mini would make a fantastic addition to any personal collection and not to mention a whole lot of fun to drive today as it was in 1965.
