Extremely rare Mk III Morris Mini Cooper S

This Morris Cooper ‘S’ Mk III is 1 of only 792 manufactured for the British home market, and according to its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust letter, was finished on 25th January 1971. It has covered 29,000 miles in the hands of three owners and has benefited from a full and complete nut and bolt restoration by an ex-BMC mechanic, completed in 2014.

The bodywork was taken back to bare metal and was professionally painted to a high standard. The car now looks splendid in its Blaze Red coachwork with a Black roof, gold wheels and spot/fog lamps. The original blue vinyl interior has been fully restored and looks superb. The 1275cc Cooper ‘S’ engine (12H) has been professionally rebuilt and fully lightened and balanced with a flowed and ported cylinder head, road/race camshaft, new twin 1.5” SUs, a Stage 2 manifold and a free-flow exhaust system, and now produces 80.5 bhp on unleaded fuel.

The extent of the restoration cannot be understated. The entire suspension was replaced and converted to rubber cones, with new Bilstein dampers front and rear, ‘Adjust a ride’ suspension and new brakes all around. The new front and rear sub-frames have been powder coated, and the underside rust protected and painted Blaze Red. Professionally rewired with a new, period correct, wiring loom and fuse box, it’s also fitted with period correct Cooper S wheel rims, new period Dunlop tyres, and ‘Group Two’ wheel arches with chrome trim.

A huge history file complete with a photographic record of the work undertaken and all the relevant invoices is supplied with this stunning Mini. The car has covered less than 500 miles since the rebuild and has a fresh MOT Certificate valid until October 2017. There are original registration documents in the file from previous owners, along with old tax discs and a Cooper ‘S’ handbook. A beautiful and very collectable Mini Cooper ‘S that will turn heads wherever you go.
