The 1967 Austin Mini Cooper S Mark I

Leonard Lord, the head of the British Motor Corporation, had a thing for German "bubble cars" – he hated them. He vowed to rid the streets of them by designing a proper miniature car. A team led by Alec Issigonis created the budget-minded 1959 Austin Seven, a unit-body, front-wheel drive, two-door saloon with a transversely-mounted 848cc four-cylinder motor and a four-speed manual transmission. By 1962, it was rechristened the Austin Mini, and would go on to be built into the millions. More significantly, it served as the template for the modern compact car.

Starting in 1961, in a collaboration between Issignonis and race car builder John Cooper, the sporty Mini Cooper hit the streets. Featuring a stroked, race-tuned motor, twin SU carburetors, and front disc brakes, the Cooper was destined for Group 2 rally racing. Two years later, an even more powerful Cooper S debuted, which was built with several different motors depending on the homologation requirements of different rally classes.

The Motorcar Offered

This 1967 Mini Cooper S Mark I is one of the factory homologation versions with the larger, more powerful 1275cc motor like the one that won the 1967 Monte Carlo Rally. The motor has been rebuilt and slightly modified for more performance including larger carburetors. Outside, the body has received one gold repaint; inside, the interior has been modified in a "track-day" style. It's not easy to find a LHD Mini Cooper S, but this one is ready for you to hop in and carve some turns in the Connecticut backroads.
