A lot of us would love to have a classic Mini, but often we're not willing to give up creature comforts. That's what makes this 1975 Mini Cooper so appealing. It has the cool classic looks, but with nice conveniences like fuel injection and air conditioning.
We know you love the look of these original Minis. The shape is unmistakable, and you can't help but smile at this icon. And this one was built to maximize its status. This has the right Cooper details with the quad driving lights up front, flared fenders, and Minilite-style wheels. Plus, the white hood (bonnet) stripes and white roof look cool against the black paint. So the total look pays a nice tribute to the rugged little Rally machines that were giant killers on the circuit. And to remind you of this legacy is everything from John Cooper's signature graphic on the fender to the Monte Carlo Rally logos seen from every angle of the exterior.
While this is titled as a 1975 car, it really is a later 1994 model. It makes a pretty big difference inside. After all, every Mini knew how to maximize its interior space, but where the early ones were sparse, this is quite elegant and inviting. You have high-back bucket seats up front with excellent bolstering, there's wood grain trim on the dash, and everyone has shoulder belts. Plus, the two-tone upholstery with a textured white and bold red is positively eye-catching. This is a desirable left-hand drive model with a grippy sports steering wheel and the full gauge panel with a large speedo (in kilometers) and also has a very handy tach. And when was the last time you saw one of these Minis with modern upgrades like air conditioning?
Under the hood is the correct 1275cc four-cylinder engine. This A+ Series motor is a well-known and widely used powerplant that found a home in plenty of British vehicles. That makes parts availability rather easy. You'll even spot nice updates like a K&N air filter, newer hoses, and an aluminum radiator. This was the largest engine that could fit in these little cars, and because this was part of a later series, it was even upgraded to fuel injection. That gives you impressive performance for a car of this size - especially under the control of the four-speed manual transmission. Combine the quick nature with front disc brakes and steering that is so exact it feels telepathic, and you've got in your hands on all the reasons why people are passionate about driving these Minis.
The sale comes complete with build receipts and maintenance records that document thousands $$$$ invested in this car over the last few years. This is the classic style you love with the right modern packaging, too. So if you want a vintage icon that's also much easier to enjoy, call today!
