1971 Mini Cooper S MK III

This outstanding Mini is an original and genuine Cooper S that is presented in excellent condition. The car was first registered on the 1st April 1971 and has covered just 68,000 miles from new. The recorded mileage is supported by MOT certificates dated from when the car was fifteen years old with 36000 miles and the car comes with a comprehensive file of paperwork.

From reading through the history file we know the Mini was subject of major re-commissioning work at 40,000 miles in 1987. This included a new clutch, flywheel, wheel cylinders, rear brake shoes, copper brake pipes, flexible brake hoses, new petrol pipes and hoses, new radiator and hoses, new suspension bushes, gearbox  mounting and all new ignition components. Four years later in 1991 the Mini Cooper S was subject of a major body restoration that included removal of glass, removal of rust and replacement of various panels. The body was then prepared and professionally re-painted and then re-fitted. A new headlining and rear quarter panels were also fitted to the inside of the car. Hydraulic suspension pipes were all replaced in 1991 and there are receipts and invoices for service work and maintenance up to the cars most recent full service that included new air filters, oil and filter change, new spark plugs, points, condenser and brake system work just 600 miles ago.

In recent years the Mini has been covering just 200/300 miles per year and has come to us in excellent order throughout. The Mini is fabulous to drive with a strong, healthy engine and gearbox and the car feels quick, tight and is fantastic fun on the road. The Mini holds the road superbly, acceleration is impressive and the car brakes well. The Mini looks as impressive as it drives with a stunning, first class paint finish and excellent, clean bodyshell. The chrome is all of a very high standard and the car is nicely detailed. The upholstery has a very original feel and presents as a low mileage vehicle. The interior is correct and seats are in very good order, carpets are excellent and door cards, headlining and dashboard are all very smart. The boot area is excellent and nicely trimmed, the boot floor is superb. This Cooper S really offers everything one would expect of a superbly finished example with great performance, a lovely smart trim, stunning paintwork and is an all-round excellent driving car. The Cooper S is a stunning looking car and will prove a fantastic buy.
