Designed by Alex Issigonis in 1959, a new concept in car design was born. With a monocoque shell, transversely mounted engine and front wheel drive, the new 'Mini', soon became popular across a broad spectrum of the population. The potential for competition use was soon seen by John Cooper; BMC were finally persuaded by John Cooper and the two worked together in culminating the birth of the Austin Mini Cooper and the Morris Mini Cooper in 1961. Victories in the 1964, 1965 and 1967 Monte-Carlo Rallies set the Mini on the road to fame but probably the greatest publicity was gained from their, somewhat unfair, disqualification for lighting irregularities in the 1966 event after coming in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the 'S', was developed in tandem and released in 1963. Approximately 2,500 Mk.II Cooper S were built making it one of the rarest versions of this very collectible motor car. This particular example is finished in its original colour scheme of Island Blue with a Snowberry White roof and black interior. This charming car was built on 14 th April 1969 and despatched three days later on the 17 th and sold through Joseph Cockshoot and Company of Bury, L
This superbly presented MKI Mini was first registered on the 14th May 1962 and was supplied brand new in White and allocated the registration mark NOO 440. The Mini was first registered to a lady in Enfield who kept the car seventeen years, selling it to a lady in Peterborough in 1979. The second later owner moved to the Norwich area and eventually parted with the car in 1993 and it was sold by a Norfolk based classic car business in 1994 to its third owner, a gentleman based in Glenrothes. The Mini stayed in the same family until 2010 before selling to the most recent owner, also in Fife, Scotland. NOO 440 comes to us with a comprehensive history file containing copies of all logbooks dating back to 1962, various MOT certificates and an invoice file from the 1990's detail a high level of expenditure. Work from this period includes new steering rack boots, cv boots, track rod ends, Halogen headlight kit, new oil pressure switch, plug leads, front and rear brake shoes, brake cylinders, wheel bearings, subframe bushes, handbrake cable, brake hoses, re-conditioned radious arms, knuckle joints and bushes, new rear shock absorbers, thermostat and thermostat housing, new manifold gasket,
The history of this revolutionary motorcar is well known, its impact socially, culturally and mechanically is well documented. The Swinging Sixties, free love, The Beatles, Twiggy and the Mini are inexorably combined to represent an era that is remembered with great fondness by many people. The side story is the Mini's impact on motorsport and this is no less extraordinary. Issigonis' friend John Cooper, owner of the Cooper Car Company and designer and builder of Formula One and rally cars, saw the potential of the Mini for competition. The original 848cc engine was given a longer stroke to increase capacity to 997cc, boosting power from 34bhp to 55bhp. The car featured a racing-tuned engine, twin SU carburettors, a closer-ratio gearbox and front disc brakes, uncommon at the time in a small car. A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the 'S', was then developed in tandem and released in 1963, featuring a 1071cc engine. The Mini Cooper S earned acclaim with Monte Carlo Rally victories in 1964, 1965 and 1967. Minis were initially placed first, second and third in the 1966 rally as well, but were disqualified after a badly judged decision by the French judges. Huge demand was also genera
