DESCRIPTION

Alec Issigonis’ friend John Cooper, owner of the Cooper Car Company and designer and builder of Formula 1 and rally cars, saw the potential of the Mini for competition. Issigonis was initially reluctant to see the Mini as a performance car but, after John Cooper appealed to the BMC management, the two men collaborated to create the Mini Cooper.

The Austin Mini Cooper and Morris Mini Cooper debuted in 1961. A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the ’S’, was developed in tandem and released in 1963. The Cooper S MkII is the rarest of all of the Mini Coopers with a production run of 6,300 compared to 19,000 MkI's.

This is a very rare opportunity to buy one of the last ever made Morris Mini Cooper S MkII 1275’s which has been beautifully restored in its original Snowberry White colour with immaculate bodywork. This Mini has received a full nut and bolt restoration leaving this as one of, if not the best example on the market. The Black Vinyl interior is in also excellent condition.

This Cooper S is featured in Jeremy Walton’s book on the marque which is included in the extensive history file. It also comes complete with the original handbook and a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate.

Sold for £25,500
