** DEPOSIT PAID ** 1971 Austin Mini 1275 Cooper S Replica. This stunning mini started life as a Austin mini 1000 and over a 3 year period was rebuilt from the ground up. It has been completed to a high standard with an Old English White body which looks white in the pictures but is a lovely old cream colour. The subframes were powder coated and then rebuilt with all new brakes giving Cooper S discs on the front and drums on the rear. It has height adjustable suspension and adjustable GAS shock absorbers. It corners very well as it has 1.5 deg negative camber front and rear plus very sticky Yokohama tyres on period Rose Petal 10 inch wheels. Like the Cooper S of its day this mini has twin petrol tanks which have been very nicely installed into an immaculate boot area. The engine and gearbox came from a 1986 MG Metro which had covered 20,000 miles. It runs very well on electronic ignition and has a full Maniflow exhaust manifold and exhaust system. There is an electronic fan which can be switched on from inside the car but it runs well within the normal range so is just a precaution. The interior is very period and a nice place to be. The swede steering wheel feels very special and the clocks have been changed to 130 MPH speedo plus oil pressure and water temperature gauges. The door cards front and rear are nicely detailed with alloy door furniture. The mini drives very well pulling strongly through the gears and equally stopping well with its Cooper S brakes. It is an involving drive which will appeal to the true mini fan but not to someone who likes listening to the radio! A very exciting and great looking Mini which will make its new owner very proud.
