In 1965, the British Motor Corporation (BCM) decided to license the manufacture of the Mini to Innocenti. Slightly restyled and more opulent, the Innocenti Mini was a great success. In 1972, Innocenti was taken over by B.L.M.C, who launched the 1000 et 1001, as well as the very desirable Innocenti Cooper.
The vehicle on offer is a 1300 cc Innocenti Mini Cooper of Italian origin. The car was delivered new in Milan, in May 1974, to Mahmoud Reza Pahlavi, the half-brother of the Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza. It was acquired by the current owner's father-in-law in 1981. This Mini followed its owners to the UK and was then restored by the well-known specialist, "Wood & Pickett" of London, in 1989. The work carried out focused on mechanicals and bodywork, as well as a few modifications, such as an original two-tone color scheme, lowering the suspension, 12-inch "Maifrini" rims and a Cooper S exhaust. Recently, after a period of non-use, the car was serviced by Atelier Mini Paris for an amount of nearly 3500 €. Well stored and displaying barely 38,150km, this Mini is in good condition and a test drive showed us its dynamic road behavior.
