Project Description


Mini Cooper S

Built in Abingdon UK, 3rd August 1966 for export to Canada but then delivered to Portland Oregon USA 19/7/67 by Pierres motors (original invoice with car). There are 81,000 miles showing and original steel reverse rim Dunlop wheels and only two previous owners. With the car is heritage certificate, owners handbook, passport to service book, and stamped metal owners identification plate. The car has been coveted by just two owners in the USA. In the 90’s Due to paint deterioration, the car was stripped and the body was walnut shell blasted to remove the original flaking paint and repainted, it was then carefully painted and reassembled.

No panels have ever been replaced, repaired or welded, something unprecedented for a classic Mini, early or late. The hydrolastic suspension is correct and fully functioning, the engine and gearbox original and matching. The car is finished in original green ‘export’ color (different from UK colors), and still retains correct internal parts (en40b crank, steel rods etc.). This may very well be the best early Mini Cooper S in existence today.
