1971 Austin Mini Cooper S 1380cc Motorsport Race / Rally Pre For Sale

1971 Austin Mini Cooper S 1380cc Race Rally Car

This car had seen some serious competition use in its earlier years, first as a rally car then later converted to track spec.

Just removed from long term storage approx twelve years, and undergone a light refresh by heroes & history race mechanic.

Back in the day when mini's were inexpensive and regularly available, if any damage accrued while competing it was actually easier to purchase a new shell, strip the Cooper S parts and reassembled onto a new body, many losing that holy grail cooper S title.

This car still reads 71’ cooper S on the up to date log book.

That said, this particular car has been built for a purpose, it’s by no means a matching number car but all mechanical parts remain Cooper S unless upgraded.

The upside to this is you can get on with competitively campaigning the car with less of a worry about damaging it.

Back to the spec....

The Aldon motorsport built engine and gearbox in this road legal racer are unbelievable, bored out to 1380cc with 45 Webber carb and straight cut, drop gear box.

The ride is loud, fast and furious…

The interior is fit for purpose with full safety devices roll cage, period bucket seats, four point harness and race dashboard with reworked gauge and toggle setup, meaning you have everything to hand without taking full attention off the road.

Subtle at first glance with period cooper paint scheme, on the second you notice the flared Grp 2 arches, cooper S wheels shod in Yokohama rubber, twin spotlights, and central exit competition exhaust…. you then realise this little mini is built for a purpose.
