Description

First registered in June 1971 and with our vendorfor over 30yearsFinished in brilliant SandglowYellow with a black interiorFitted with a period-correct Moto-Lita wood-rimmed steering wheelTotally unmolested and regularly maintainedin an eclectic Mini collectionThe majority of the 64,163indicated miles were covered in the early daysOnly 792 of these cars were built for the home market and consequentlyare now rareYour earliest inspection is encouraged and welcomedAlong with the rest of the Mini range, the Cooper S was launched in Mk2 guise in 1967. Other Minis had dispensed with their marque names but the Cooper S continued to be available in Austin and Morris forms and the 1275 Cooper S actually made it to Mk3 form with concealed door hinges,wind-up windows andHydrolastic suspension until British Leylands 3-year agreement with Cooper expiredin 1971 and the model disappeared with only 792 UK-market examples of the Mk3 1275S leaving Longbridge.This exceptionally original example was first registered in June 1971 and consequently was one of the very last. It'sbeen with its current ownerfor overthirty years, forming part of hiseclectic Mini collection and is totally unmolested and regularly maintained regardless of cost. An MOT trace indicates that the majority of the 64,163indicated miles were covered in the early days of its life with little use but constant care in more recent years.In summer-fresh Sandglow with a black interior and fitted with a period-correct Moto-Lita wood-rimmed steering wheel, this freshly serviced and MOTd Mk3is ready to go and be fully enjoyed as intended.At some point in our lives wehave all owned a Mini but not everyone managed to attain the dizzy heights of Cooper S ownership, maybe now is the time to tick that box.You can now book a one to one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location between 16th and 30th July.
