It was John Cooper that first realised the tuning potential of the Mini in 1959. He was impressed with the neutral handling and by 1961 the first Cooper was available. The Mini-Cooper went through many progressions eventually culminating in the 1275 S. Performance motoring was available to an eager public and Cooper owners ranged also from royalty to celebrities alike. The Cooper name continues to flourish in the form of the ‘new' Mini Cooper to this day.
Offered here is splendidly restored Mini Cooper MKI in Tartan Red with black roof and red interior. The Heritage Certificate confirms it to be a UK RHD example built on 30th March 1966 and despatched a month later to Kennings Ltd. of Norwich. The registration HPW 651D was issued in Norfolk. The continuation green logbook is present and the current V5 shows only four previous owners. It was restored to a very good standard in 2008 and the history file contains photos of the work done. It comes with an MOT until March 2015, original handbook and a BMC approved accessory brochure.
This is great example of the iconic Mini Cooper MKI in the best colour combination that drives exceptionally well. A true affordable classic, easy to run and great fun.
