This is a genuine Cooper S, not a replica or evocation, that having been off the road at least since the mid-2000’s,  over the last 3 years  has undergone a full nut and bolt rebuild allegedly costing over £45000.

The car was stripped back to bare metal and resprayed to its original factory colour combination of Island Blue with Snowberry White roof. The shell is reputedly the original. The respray was completed 18 months ago, since then the last owners have been rebuilding the car – if anything was not up to standard they have replaced it. 

The interior is as-new with retrimmed seats, new door cards, new carpets and new headlining, and a new Moto-Lita woodrim steering wheel.

Everything mechanical has been stripped back and restored or replaced . The engine and gearbox are both reputedly the originals and both have been fully rebuilt, and the previous owners have reinstated the original hydrolastic suspension setup/

Odometer reading 18000 miles, although it’s done less than 100 miles since being rebuilt, and everything is still bedding in.

The heritage certificate shows it as an original UK RHD example that was built on 14th March 1969 and despatched to the original supplying dealer on 27th July 1969.

Interestingly, a previous owner researched the owner history from DVLA, and a photocopy of the original logbook shows the first owner as ‘Keith Richard’ from 1969-75. Probably not the guitar legend, although he was known as Keith Richard rather than Richards in the 60’s and 70’s.

Whilst it’s road tax, MOT, and ULEZ exempt, it’s currently MOT’d  to May 2024 with no advisories

NB the eagle-eyed will have spotted that there’s no seat belts currently fitted. That’s because, as it’s pre-72, it can have nice chromed period buckle-type belts, or indeed modern ones. We’ve left it up to the new owner to choose, and will fit whatever’s specified at no extra cost.
