1964-1965 MINI Cooper 970S specifications


The reduction in engine size and power for 1964’s 970S Cooper might have seemed a strange move but it was built simply as a homologation special with a short-stroke 970cc engine developing 65bhp. The specialist engine was pricy to manufacture and so BMC made it a special order model; thus very few were sold. Aside from the engine, the mechanical specification was the same as the 1071S. Hydrolastic suspension made an appearance three months after launch but the car itself only lasted a further seven months after this change.
