We are very pleased to offer this stunning and very rare 1971 MK3 Austin Mini Cooper S. 1275cc. Finished in Glacier white this Cooper S has been very well looked after throughout its 47 year history and is a full matching numbers example, including its original FE number and floor pan tag. It has its correct Cooper S shell and original engine and is accompanied with a large history folder, heritage confirmation and its original Cooper S handbook and sales brochure. Restored in the early nineties and presented in fantastic solid condition. This Cooper S was registered on the 6th of May 1971 and is confirmed to be one of the last 100 Cooper S Minis to be built. It has an excellent provenance having only had three keepers since 1984 as well as being a fantastic drivers car.

The MK3 Cooper S is a very rare sight these days and their values continue to rise as they are now a very collectable variant as is any Mini with the Cooper S badge. Subtle styling means that these machines can really surprise people when there out on the open road. The only real tell tale sign is the discreet boot badge and of course the twin tanks. Only 1572 were ever made and very few remain today.

On the road this Cooper S will not disappoint, I absolutely love driving this Mini, the acceleration is very brisk, make no mistake, this Cooper S really flies, the engine is super smooth, holds a very strong oil pressure and is a mated to a smooth gearbox. It has servo assisted disc brakes so it stops as well. Handling and road holding is sublime on its original Hydrolastic suspension, the uprated system used on the S makes it one of the best handling Minis ever made. It is fitted with a set of period Minilte wheels and Yokohama Advan tyres and it also has Minifins on the rear.

The interior is also very well presented and the understated theme continues, the original seats were re trimmed in leather at the same time as the restoration and it has a fitted carpet set. A period Astrali steering wheel and a rev counter are also fitted. The roof liner is immaculate and the 130 mph speedo is the only real give away to this Minis intentions.

This Cooper has a very solid shell, it has been waxoiled and preserved beautifully as well as being kept in dry storage. the floorpans, rear bins, boot floor and underside are all in amazing solid condition as you can see from the images its in very good condition. I am more than happy to send futher images of any area to support its condition.

This Cooper S is fully serviced, tuned and checked and will be supplied with a full MOT, it is also MOT and tax exempt. This Cooper S is ready to be driven, shown and more importantly enjoyed.
