1971 MINI MINI COOPER S - £Auction
First registered on 1st August 1971, this very late Mark III 'S' is finished in a very rare factory colour of Teal Blue with a black vinyl interior. The Cooper is fitted with desirable period features such as a Motolita leather steering wheel, Webasto full sunroof and Wipac spot lamps. This little Mini has an interesting history, an original UK home market car, it was purchased by a gentleman in the oil industry who, when he moved to Texas, took his Mini with him. The car resided in the U.S. for a number of years, then was placed into storage before benefitting from an extensive restoration. One or suitable upgrades were deemed suitable - the suspension has been changed for an adjustable "Hi/Lo" kit, allowing better tuning of the suspension settings to achieve the perfect handling balance. Also the dynamo has been replaced with an alternator to improve charging. The Mini sits on the correct 4.5" steel rims.The Mini Cooper 'S' was and still is just about as much fun as you can have on four wheels, this rare restored Mark III with only 3 owners from new and in super condition represents a wonderful opportunity to own a true icon of the era.
