1964-1967 MINI Cooper 1275S Mk1 specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Cooper’s crowning glory was the 1275S, the MkI version of which lasted from 1964 to 1967. It was these Coopers that ruled the Monte Carlo rallies of the 1960s. The long-stroke 1275cc A-series gave 76bhp, enough to launch the car to nigh on 100mph. Single colour paint schemes were available alongside the usual two-tone ones meaning that these Coopers were great little Q-cars, as there wasn’t too much else to distinguish them from a standard Mini. Hydrolastic suspension came along in 1964, with an oil cooler and twin fuel tanks from 1966.
