NOW RESERVED FOR NEW OWNER – ALL OTHER CLASSIC MINI MODELS ESPECIALLY COOPER, COOPER S AND COUNTRYMAN REQUIRED URGENTLY FOR OUTRIGHT PURCHASE OR CONSIGNMENT SALE – SEE ‘SELL YOURS‘ PAGE
motodrome are pleased to offer this very special classic Mini -a 1999 Rover Mini John Cooper Works S Touring Sportspack, finished in the original Solar Red with White roof, and black leather interior with cream piping.
This one is an original John Cooper Garages supplied example, not a later conversion, and is build number 99-S-162.
Based on the standard Rover Mini Cooper 1.3MPi, John Cooper Garages managed to extract 90bhp from the engine, combined with 20% extra torque, making these possibly the quickest A-series powered classic Mini with factory provenance.
This one was fitted from new with the Sports pack ie 13in alloys under wide arches, and uprated shock absorbers.
The John Cooper options list was extensive, but the original owner opted only for the full black leather option (with embossed Mini Cooper logos), extra gauges, quick shift gearbox option, twin stainless exhaust, alloy door furniture, locking alloy fuel cap, John Cooper etched door tread plates, and alloy dipstick.
MILEAGE, HISTORY ETC
Odometer reading 75000 miles. The last owner, who’s had it since 2008, commissioned a restoration in 2016 with new panelwork including
- New door skins
- New front wings
- New front panel
- Both apex panels
- Scuttle panel
- Both closing panels
- Both door steps
- Both sills
Followed by a good respray in the original Solar Red
We’re told the engine was rebuilt and the vehicle waxoyled as part of the restoration.
Since then it has been carefully stored under a cover that comes with it, and has covered minimal mileage.
History-wise, we have the original book pack including the original service book with 11 stamps in it, a file full of bills, John Cooper Garages correspondence including the original sales invoice, price lists and S touring promotional paperwork. We also have 2 keys and immobiliser fobs.
This really special, highly sought after classic Mini will come with a fresh 12 months MOT and a full service on sale.
Also comes with a couple of large boxes of spares
It looks great, sounds superb, and is guaranteed to put a smile on it’s driver’s face…
