Austin Mini Cooper (1965)
Welcome to the sale of this quirky 1965 Austin Mini Cooper. This Cooper has had many hours of love and expense lavished on it and is presented in a wonderful condition, it never fails to draw a crowd whenever it’s out and about and rightly so. It has an enviable list of new parts and extras all carefully documented with invoices and has been sparingly used since its completion. This Cooper offers a very useable quick package and the chance to own a Cooper that really stands out from the crowd, it can sit proudly on any display stand, Wizz you round a race track, or impress you on the open road. This Cooper is presented in a very striking metallic Blue and is the same color underneath as it is on top. It’s finished with a new set of Minilite wheels with Dunlop SP Tyres and group 2 wheel arches, almost every nut and bolt has been replaced and the long list is available. Get it out on the road and the fun starts, this Cooper has a twist, its fitted with a rebuilt 1275 engine and a Cooper S head fed through twin inch and a half carbs with a Manilfow exhaust system, it more than keeps up with the modern stuff and will certainly make you smile, especially with that unmistakable twin carb sound. It also has an oil cooler, fully adjustable suspension, S discs, and twin tanks so its ready for the open road. It has been recently rolling road tuned so it pulls well, stops well, and handles beautifully. This Cooper has also been fully retrimmed with a Newton Commercial interior. This includes wonderful reclining front seats with matching rears, door cards, dash panel, roof lining, and carpets. It has a Mota-Lita steering wheel, rev counter, and a Cooper S 130 MPH speedo. The boot also features the correct boot board and a brand new spare. The engine bay is also very nicely detailed. As mentioned this Cooper has been recently restored so is very solid throughout and the paintwork is near blemish-free. It’s such a cool looking Mini in the flesh and in my opinion, offers the full Cooper experience with added performance bringing it up to S spec and a Mini Cooper that can be used and driven which is what these fantastic cars were created for.
Can be delivered at extra cost to Uk/Europe
