The giant killer! The legendary Cooper S Mk 1. Weighing in at 635Kg these pocket rocket Minis had the power to weight ratio to enable them to become giant killers in their day. In fact, the Cooper S etched its name in stone by twice winning the Monte Carlo rally. And in 1966 the Mini Cooper S blitzed the field finishing first, second and third in Monte Carlo. And at Mount Panorama, Bathurst in the Hardie Ferodo 500 in 1966, the Minis took the chequered flag filling the first NINE places!!! No other car in the races history has got close to repeating such dominance!!!
Nimble and super quick, they were unbeatable in their day. Here and across the world, the Mini has featured on race tracks as well as on movie sets winning our hearts and minds over the decades.
For sale is an excellent tribute Cooper S. Built from an Iceberg blue 1964 Mini 850 Deluxe, the owner has implanted all the running gear from a damaged genuine Mk 1 Cooper S including the 1275 Cooper S engine with its twin 1 1/2" S Us and larger Cooper S radiator, MK 1 Cooper S 4 speed manual gearbox, front disk/rear drum brakes, genuine Cooper S twin fillers and dual petrol tanks, Cooper S interior and original dash and period correct ROH 10" Minilites with as new Yokahama Advan 032R semi slick tyres.
Added to this is a Bond alloy half cage, racing bonnet latches and racing stickers.
A perfect little pocket rocket to enjoy as a weekend cruiser or get involved in some club hill climbs or targa events. Showing 76,610 miles, the car has had a lot of time and money spent on the mechanicals to ensure that it is both reliable and quick. Available for inspection in our Kingsgrove showroom.
