1967 Austin Mini Cooper S 1275cc, Morris Cooper S 1275cc
I have purchased a large collection of hundreds of Austin Mini/Classic Mini parts. The person I purchased these parts from had been racing his Minis for decades, was meticulous regarding his detail with these cars, and only used the best parts. The four complete Minis are all Cooper S, and most of the parts are either race parts, 1275 Cooper s parts, or just 1275 parts. I plan on selling all of the parts on EBAY, and I have had great experiences with EBAY in the past. You can view my collection and a video of the parts at www.vcmotorsports.blogspot.com. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions, and you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will post these for sale on ebay soon, or make me an offer.

My Janspeed Mini Cooper-S
This is the highlights of my Janspeed Mini Cooper S car that was used in
the famous enthusiast video Janspeed DIY Mini, produced by my company. The
car was stripped down to the last nut and bolt. It was designed by their
race team along with the legendary David Vizard and then built by
Janspeed's race engine builders. Even the body was rebuilt from scratch!
The car also featured in a magazine article as one of the fastest ever road
Minis! It's a blindingly quick car and will easily embarrass many hot
hatches of today. See the details on its website.

I couldn't take any footage during the actual run as I was driving, but I
did manage to get 2 hours worth of footage. It was a pleasant day and there
were some nice Mini's out, a few of them included:
Palmer Brothers Mini Shorty (Pink Nitroused)
Mini Roadster (Blue roof chopped)
GSX-R Powered Mini Minus shell, 3-4 inch body chop (By Andy Farmer)
Vauxhall Powered Mini (Bonnet chopped)
If anyone has any more details on these Mini please let me know and I can
add credits to the video and links.

Mini engine 1275 fitting pistons
Here's my MG Metro engine from my Mini. After getting the block prepared,
bored to 1293cc and fitting the crank, this video shows me fitting the
pistons with con rods.
They're Hepolite pistons and are supposed to be the best quality for the A
The piston ring compression tool wasn't that good. Getting that last bit of
squeeze on the rings was difficult. I got it from Halfords but it did the
job I suppose.
The music is from Orbital and is called Attached. It was recorded on the
Peel Sessions in the 90s.
