The original Mini Cooper was made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. This highly prepared Mini is a high performance “Pocket Rocket”, presently configured for track use and could easily be reconfigured for Rally and street use. Great looks with exceptional build quality.

The original is considered a British icon of the 1960s, and its space-saving front-wheel-drive layout (which allowed 80% of the area of the car’s floorplan to be used for passengers and luggage) influenced a generation of car makers. The vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent to its German contemporary, the Volkswagen Beetle, which enjoyed similar popularity in North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T.

Designed as project ADO15 (Austin Drawing Office project number 15), the Mini came about because of a fuel shortage caused by the 1956 Suez Crisis. Sliding windows allowed storage pockets in the hollow doors; reportedly the designer sized them to fit a bottle of Gordon’s Gin. The boot lid was hinged at the bottom so that the car could be driven with it open to increase luggage space. On early cars the number plate was hinged at the top so that it could swing down to remain visible when the boot lid was open. This feature was later discontinued after it was discovered that exhaust gases could leak into the cockpit when the boot was open.

The Mini Cooper and Cooper “S” were sportier versions that were successful as rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times from 1964 through to 1967, although in 1966 the Mini was disqualified after the finish, along with six other British entrants, which included the first four cars to finish, under a questionable ruling that the cars had used an illegal combination of headlamps and spotlights.

This car was built on November 22, 1968 and delivered to British Leyland Motor Company of Canada December 6, 1968. It has been upgraded beyond “S” specifications, this 1275cc Cooper engine is bored 0.40 over to 1340cc with forged dished pistons and 10.5:1 compression ratio. aluminum stage-1 cylinder head from Mini Mania, Windsor 1.5:1 roller rockers & a 45DCOE Weber Carb push the estimated power output to 130 bhp. With a zero to 60 time under 6 seconds and top speed of 115 mph, the original rubber bushing suspension has been converted to full shock absorbers, this car is Fun & FAST!
