First ever west Midlands Police Cooper S.

Welcome to the sale of my very special Mini Cooper S. This is a matching numbers Mini.

This came as part of a collection that I purchased earlier this year.

Where to start. It's an Austin Mini Cooper 1275 MKI and was built on the 11th May 1964 and despatched on the 29 May 1964. It was a special order West midlands police car demonstrator, so a very early S. The Mini had the coolest plate Ive seen 999 MOM but this left the Mini around 67 (I assume when it was decommissioned) when it was issued with its current age correct reg, Ive the original registration book confirming this. (the reg is on a Vauxhall Mariva in Birmingham, I am trying to find the owner as would be wonderful to have it back on the Mini)

being a Police Mini it left the factory in Monotone White and had factory options of a Fresh air heater, Twin Petrol Tanks, Oil cooler, Calibrated speedometer and 3. 44 to 1 final Gear ratio.

The Mini had a high standard restoration around 25 years ago then went into a private collection where it sat until I pulled it out. Ive not yet washed the Mini off as it feels like part of it and Ive been unsure on what to do with it. The floors are spotless and the paint work looks great. This is a true piece of Mini history. The Mini Cooper Register know of the Mini and have confirmed it as being the police car and kindly shared a picture of it in its police state in 1964.

We spent a few hours on the Mini a few weeks ago and got it running, Ive a video and I also ran it down the road, of course its been sat for a very long time so needs some recommissioning fuel lines, su's then a good tune etc. Of course remove the god awful rc40 exhaust that someones put on it lol. This Mini is on Hydro which is all in great condition and one of the very first.

Interior wise its got most of it other than carpets, I also have the matching correct front seats but they are perfect so I put some others in. Red & Gold brocade is all in great condition.

Has the correct LP883 wheels. It does not have its light and bells which is a shame these are long gone.
