1997 Rover Mini Cooper

John Cooper was well known for his involvement, with his father Charles, in developing the post-war rear engine single seater 500cc race cars that ran amok and beat the larger front engine cars of the period. John is also later renowned for his development of the iconic Mini with the Mini Coopers cleaning up in high profile race and rally events in the 1960s and beyond.
Offered today is this 1997 Rover Mini Cooper which has been part of a private collection for some time. The Mini benefits from a 1275cc engine which makes for a very quick little car indeed. Generally, in very good order this Mini is fitted with various upgrades including uprated alloy wheels and an Alcantara sports steering wheel. Complete with a sizeable history file detailing various work undertaken, many old MoT test certificates, and the current UK registration document. This is a small package with potential for lots of fun. For sale by auction on Saturday 15 May 2021 with Historics Auctioneers, Call 01753 639170
