Description

The notion that the Mini might have a future as anything other than basic transport was an anathema, the idea of a high-performance version was laughable. One man though, saw it quite differently. Racing car manufacturer John Cooper already knew quite a bit about tuning BMC’s A-Series engine, he was running the company’s Formula Junior effort at the time and a test drive in a prototype Mini convinced him of the car’s competition potential.

The Mini Cooper soon established its credentials as a rally and race winner and the stage was set for even faster versions. The first of these, the 1071cc Mini Cooper ‘S’ of 1963, took engine development a stage further and provided the basis for the 971 ‘S’ and 1275 ‘S’ of 1964.

Fitted with a desirable sunroof, this matching numbers Cooper S is a very original and unmolested example that is still in very good condition throughout. In its current ownership, the car has been very well maintained both mechanically and cosmetically.

Described to be a lovely drive, recently the car has had a major service which included new plugs, petrol filter, GT leads, rocker gasket, oil flush and change and new coolant.
