You can now book a one to one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location between 16th and 30th July. Please contact us on the details below to secure your appointment or using the button below to discuss the car in more detail. The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to strict COVID-19 guidelines and full instructions for arrival and inspection protocols will be given when making your appointment.

Along with the rest of the Mini range, the Cooper S was launched in Mk2 guise in 1967. Other Minis had dispensed with their marque names but the Cooper S continued to be available in Austin and Morris forms and the 1275 Cooper S actually made it to Mk3 form with concealed door hinges, wind-up windows and Hydrolastic suspension until British Leyland’s 3-year agreement with Cooper expired in 1971 and the model disappeared with only 792 UK-market examples of the Mk3 1275S leaving Longbridge.

Offered here is a beautiful UK supplied, right-hand drive Cooper S first registered on 24th August 1971. According to documents within the file this example had been subject to a detailed ground-up, nut and bolt restoration in 2005 to mostly original specification including an engine rebuild by Rob Walker Engineering. This example has formed part of a significant private collection of landmark cars and appears to have been stored correctly during this period.
Today this Cooper S presents beautifully in Teal Blue paintwork with matching Navy Blue seats. The speedometer indicated just 414 miles at the time of cataloguing and we believe this is the distance travelled since the complete restoration. Accompanying this car is a file containing a current MOT valid to February 2021, the V5c and some related documents.

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car.
