The essentials

The last of the Mini Cooper 1275 ‘S’, the MK3 is one of the rarest versions. This dream machine is finished in iconic red, with black interior.  The car has been recently refurbished with new sills and a re-paint and fitted with the original Cosmic wheels, in keeping with the 1970s period. With only 49,000 miles, this MK3 has benefited from significant financial investment and comes with a history file of invoices and MOTs to support its mileage. It boasts 1/4 inch SU carburettors, works starter, Cibie lights and bucket seats. A roll cage is also available, along with a set of Mini Lite wheels.

From 1985 - 1998, this vehicle was owned by Ian Grindrod, British and European Rally Championship co-driver for racing legends Jimmy McRae, Tony Pond and Roger Clark.  Prepared to an excellent standard, this Cooper S has been fully inspected and is 'Sayer-approved.'
