Genuine 1966 Mk1 Austin Mini Cooper S Historic 1275/1966, comes with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate.
This Mini comes from a true Mini enthusiast, below is an interesting short story.
His Dad bought a brand new Mini van in 1965, he was young then but able to drive his Dad’s Mini from time to time.
He often borrowed his Dad’s Mini without permission in the evenings and drove it to the seaside in Helsinki, there he drove it on ice tracks on the frozen Baltic Sea. Because Mini was so easy to drive this was exceedingly fun. Naturally this is what gave him a strong emotional bond with the Mini.
After a while his Dad wondered why the Mini’s engine packed up so quickly? Maybe the evening ice race sessions had something to do with that 😊.
He then bought his Wife a Mini Cooper 998 in 1972. It was so good to drive that he started to drive rallies at weekends with it, during the week his Wife used it for her shopping trips. In 2002 he tuned up this red Mini to rally condition and started to drive historic rallies and sprints.
In 2006 he bought this Mini Cooper S 1275 and converted it to Historic rally specification, he was very successful with this car and it has a great documented race history spanning from 6.1.2007 – 8.10.2011. Driven both summer and winter, 32 Historic rallies and sprints.
Since the last competition, the car has been part of his private collection and used only to attend shows.
