1966 Austin Mini Cooper 'S' Mk1 For Sale

I have owned the car for over twenty years and decided to rebuild it to the original factory specification with no period accessories or 'gismos'.
75% to 80% of the car is original with a total rebuild of the engine and gearbox increasing it to 1293 cc along with a 1128 four speed synchromesh gearbox. The braking system has been totally replaced.
The complete body shell was blasted, zinc primed prior to work being undertaken resulting in replacement heritage front wings and bonnet slam panel with the remaining body shell being totally original.
The boot lid is an extremely rare aluminium panelled skin. The car has been painted to a very high specification inside and out in the original Island Blue with an Old English No2 White roof along with the original 4.5J factory road wheels.
During this production period the Longbridge factory built the majority of the Cooper 'S' cars with hydrolastic suspension with the exception of just less that 300 cars built using up earlier parts bin parts the likes of dry suspension and external door handles and pull cords. The subframes have been powder coated. Another interesting point is the mounting of the Control box on the inner flitch panel whereas the production Cooper 'S' cars it was positioned on the bulkhead. This meant that a special braided wiring loom had to be manufactured for the engine bay.
New Bilstein shock absorbers and five Yokohama tyres fitted to the original 'S'rims. Original old stock lap and diagonal B.M.C. seat belts.
The car is wired negative earth. Clear anti-corrosion wax throughout. The rear seat is original with Newton Commercial replacement front covers and trim panels. Grey 80/20 Bonded wool carpets with original driver's heel mat sewn in place.
Supplied with a current V5c, Original Green Log Book and Continuation Book, Heritage Certificate and Invoice.

The engine and 1128 four speed synchromesh gearbox have been totally rebuilt by Bill Richards racing to 1293 cc fast road specification. The full specification is with the car. Twin pin differential, twin 1.25 inch SU carburettors with original air filter box. LCB exhaust system with RC40 silencer. The power unit had two hours bench running in prior to fitting to the car.

Photograph record included of the restoration. This car was awarded the Chief Judges Award at the 2019 National Mini Cooper Rally at Beulieu.
I am a Mini enthusiast of many years standing and selling due to heath issues.
