We are very excited to offer this beautiful, true, Series 1 Cooper S finished in its original color combination. Although the car is small in stature, it has a big presence in our showroom among other enthusiast vehicles.
We see on the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust (BMIHT) Certificate, that the car was a “Home Market”, RHD Mini built the 20th of January 1967. It was dispatched on the 1st of March 1967 to Mann Egerton & Company LTD in Norwich England to be offered for sale. Just as it is today, the car left the factory finished in Old English White w/Black roof, over Red and Gold interior. Factory options included heater, twin fuel tanks, and an oil cooler.
The way the car is currently finished is superb. Every little detail was looked at as the car was restored. Interior, engine, and exterior are just gorgeous. Stacks and stacks of receipts for every little part for this car were kept and filed as the restoration took place. Many parts were ordered from the UK, so in addition to the amazing amount of money spent on parts, the amount spent on shipping is surprising as well.
During the very recent restoration, the car was tastefully modified visually and mechanically. A large majority of the changes/modifications can be reversed to factory specs if desired with the spare parts we have for the car. The interior finish is impeccable, and finished in the original color combination of Red and Gold. The interior features a removable Safety Devices roll bar, LeCarra steering wheel, Smiths tachometer, and bucket seats.
In addition to the tasteful interior and exterior modifications, the original 1275cc engine and transmission were rebuilt. Every little part was checked over, measured, and replaced if necessary. Some of the notable things to mention are: new A and E pistons, leaded valve seats, new valves, ARP bolts, and Longman GT7 SPVP3 Camshaft. Also, a Newer radiator with “tropical fan” was added, the generator was replaced with an alternator, and an Odyssey battery was installed. This car is a pleasure to drive!
A few boxes of spare parts goes with the car, and are original or correct for the original specs for the car. The larger parts to mention are: front bumper, steering wheel, glass, right hand drive components, generator, starter, radiator.
The amount of great things to say about this car are nearly endless. Why not make it yours, and you can come up with all sorts of great things of your own to say!
