1971 Morris Mini Cooper S MK111 UK RHD Exceptional Condition For Sale
Morris Mini Cooper S MK3 1971 Glacier White with Navy Trim.
This extraordinary example was purchased by Steve Burkinshaw in 2006. He was the Treasurer of the Cooper Register. He then carried out a painstaking complete nut and bolt restoration on this Cooper S to virtually ‘as new’ condition.
The only deviations from the production line are the Dunlop D1s, Alloy Wheels, the Moto Lita steering wheel, the fact that it’s been converted to dry suspension and the engine capacity was increased to 1310cc when rebuilt (all thoroughly documented in the accompanying rebuild paperwork).
A comprehensive article was featured in Mini World magazine describing it as ’the definitive Mk3 S’.
In 2011, the car was sold to the last owner who meticulously kept and maintained this Cooper S. During this time the car covered only 3,000 miles.
With 56,272 warranted miles, and comprehensive historical documentation going back to the early '70’s, this car really has great heritage.
This Cooper S is a UK supplied right hand drive car. There were only 792 of these manufactured.
Supplied with a comprehensive history file containing documentation going back to the ‘70s, including the aforementioned Mini World magazine article and invoices for servicing and maintenance for recent years.
The condition that this car is in today is a testament to the quality of the restoration that was carried out over ten years ago.
This Cooper S is in impeccable condition in every department, is very quick, and drives faultlessly.
Really needs to be viewed to understand its exceptionally extraordinary condition
