Morris Cooper S vs. Saab 96 V4 Rally
Twee doodnormale auto's zetten in de jaren zestig de internationale
rallywereld op zijn kop. Want tot ieders verbazing bleken Saab en Mini in
de wieg gelegd
voor de rallysport. En de Mini Cooper S viert dit jaar ook nog eens zijn
vijftigste verjaardag op Goodwood. Hij werd immers geboren in 1963,
hetzelfde jaar dat Saab voor de tweede keer op rij de Rally van Monte Carlo
op zijn naam schreef.

Recently we came across this beautiful Austin Mini Cooper S 1968 at The
Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the
largest in the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear
your comments on our videos. Feel free to leave one!
The Mini is a small economy car made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC)
and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a
British icon of the 1960s. Its space-saving front-wheel drive
layout -- allowing 80 per cent of the area of the car's floorpan to be used
for passengers and luggage -- influenced a generation of car makers. The
vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent of 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.
This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC by Sir Alec
Issigonis. It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants
in England, the Victoria Park / Zetland British Motor Corporation
(Australia) factory in Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain (Authi),
Belgium, Chile, Italy (Innocenti), Malta, Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay,
Venezuela and Yugoslavia. The Mini Mark I had three major UK updates -- the
Mark II, the Clubman and the Mark III. Within these was a series of
variations, including an estate car, a pick-up truck, a van and the Mini
Moke -- a jeep-like buggy. 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.
On introduction in August 1959 the Mini was marketed under the Austin and
Morris names, as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini-Minor. The Austin
Seven was renamed to Austin Mini in January 1962  and Mini became a
marque in its own right in 1969. In 1980 it once again became the
Austin Mini and in 1988 the Rover Mini.

1974 Morris Mini - First start in seven years!
After passing its MOT in 2002, the mini went back into the garage and
hadn't turned a wheel until now.
The engine is a 1400cc MiniSport half engine kit, built by me, and has only
driven about 10 miles.
The digital dashboard is from an MG Maestro, one of several modifications
made in my misguided youth. Note that it doesn't talk... yet!
Oil is fresh, but the fuel isn't. Clearly, the there is more work to be
done to get it running right.

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.
