To be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions at The Silverstone Classic Sale 2019 to be held at The Wing Building, Silverstone Circuit, United Kingdom, NN12 8TN from July 26, 2019 to July 28, 2019. Guide price: £28000 - £32000. •    A UK-supplied, right-hand drive, 1275 Cooper 'S' 
•    Recently fully recommissioned
•    Classically finished in Old English White over Almond Green
•    Coming from private ownership with a plethora of paperwork
•    Offered at a very competitive estimate Alec Issigonis was firmly against the idea of a performance version of his new baby, despite several long evenings of animated discussion with his good friend, F1 guru, John Cooper in the Royal Oak. However, after JC appealed to BMC Management, Issigonis' concerns were disregarded and the two good friends eventually cooperated in creating what rapidly became and still remains a legendary little motor car. The first cars used a 997cc twin-carb A-series, changed for a short-stroke 998cc unit from 1964. Front disc brakes were standard and Mini-Coopers stood out thanks to their two-tone paint schemes and special grilles. These nimble little cars soon established their credentials as race and rally winners, and the stage was set for even faster versions. The first of these - the 1,071cc Mini Cooper 'S' of 1963 - took engine development a stage further and provided the basis for the 970 'S' and 1275 'S' of 1964. The ultimate Mini of its day, the 1275 'S',  pumped out 76bhp while remaining exceptionally flexible, and was good for a genuine 100mph - an astonishing performance at the time. This, UK-supplied, right-hand drive 1275 Cooper ‘S’ is classically finished in Old English White over Almond Green and benefits from a recent refurbishment to a high standard by a marque specialist. During the process, the following new parts were fitted: wiring loom, clutch,  master cylinders, servo, hoses, radiator and the twin 1.25 inch carbs were rebuilt. This Mini was fully serviced on completion of the renovation and sits on good 145 x 10 Dunlop 'Aquajet' tyres on rare, original 3.5B Cooper 'S' rims. The front seats and interior are showing a nice patina and new carpets were fitted throughout. Coming from private ownership and offered at a very competitive estimate, this car may reward further investigation.
