Austin Mini Cooper 1275 S
This car is one of only 2,384 “true” MK I Mini Cooper 1275 S models ever produced, of which 1,060 were built with right-hand drive for the UK and another 1,324 left-hand drive cars for export. While over a million Minis remain on the road today, only a handful are original Mini Coopers. Ordered and purchased by a London advertising executive in the fall of 1964, this Cooper 1275 S was ordered as an exact copy of the "works" racers for daily commuting, finished with a Tweed Gray body and an Old English White roof, with a Dark Gray and Dove Gray two-tone interior.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in August of 2011 at the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center, Monterey, California.
78 bhp, 1,275 cc OHV inline four-cylinder engine, twin SU carburetors, four-speed manual gearbox, independent front and rear hydrolastic suspension, and front disc, rear drum hydraulic brakes. Wheelbase: 80"
