THE MINI

The Austin/Morris Mini was in production for 40 years, and today remains the most enduring icon of the British motor industry. To many though - its designer Alec Issigonis included - the notion that the Mini might have a future as anything other than basic transport was anathema, and the idea of a high-performance version was laughable. One man though, saw it quite differently. 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 result, launched in September 1961, was the Mini Cooper, a car that offered a size/price/performance package that was nothing short of miraculous.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

According to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate issued, this sporty Austin Mini was completed at the factory in January of 1969. The new Mini was built to the desirable, top-of-the-line Cooper S specifications, which included the 1275cc engine. The car was painted Island Blue over a Snowberry White interior, and was specified as a left-hand drive car for the Canadian market. Although the Cooper S' early history remains unknown, the history of the past decades is documented, and the history file reveals many invoices totaling more than $30,000 worth of restoration and maintenance work performed.

The car has been tastefully upgraded with period-looking rally features, to mimic the car Patrick 'Paddy' Hopkirk famously won the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally winner with. This charming Austin Mini Cooper S retains its matching numbers engine and transmission, and is offered with its Heritage Trust Certificate, a comprehensive history file, owners handbook and many spare parts. A beautifully presented example of an automotive icon, this Mini is believed to have just 56,100 miles from new.
