Requiring no introduction, the Mk.I Mini Cooper S 1275cc is perhaps the hottest car to own today, and de rigueur for any collector

Our car, a late 1967 build sold by Stringers Motors of Bournemouth in June 68 is offered with its original registration it adorned then, sports its original colour scheme of Island Blue with Old English White roof and boasts just four former keepers making it surely a consideration to any prospective Cooper S purchaser?

We wont pretend this car is 100% original having been altered in the early 1980s when used in fast-road and rally competitions as part of Colin McRaes Aberdeen and District Motor Club, but it is genuine matching chassis and engine numbers; does carry a period charm; and is not priced at above £55,000 as many seem to believe is accurate!

Our pocket-rocket Cooper is exceptionally quick thanks to its Stage 4 1293cc S engine and S box with lower final drive. It sports twin Dellorto down draught carburetors, forged Works pistons, stage 4 fully-ported big-valve S head, fully-adjustable suspension, high-load sport clutch pressure plate and modified oil pressure relief valve.

MRU 788F was the subject of a comprehensive bare-metal restoration in 2002 with replaced or restored front wings, inner and outer A posts, outer doorsteps, inner and outer sills, boot floor and battery box, complete offside rear arch, then stripped, seam-sealed and repainted topside and underneath. Despite the paint retaining a deep shine, after 15 years it could now be bettered.

The retains many original features and parts including Grey and Gold Brocade rear seats and door cards, however, crushingly, the front seats were replaced by period style bucket seats many years ago, and the dashboard has been replaced to allow for more instrumentation which was necessary when campaigned. Were certain these aspects could be reinstated if one chose, and this is why our asking price leaves enough value left in the car for somebody to undertake this.

Accompanied by BMIHT heritage certificate, current MOT, V5C and several past log books, a full DVLA record of owners, countless invoices and receipts and a whole host of photographs, we invite your sincere interest and viewing of this special little Mini.
