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.
1969 Morris Mini Cooper S MKII 1430CC
This is no ordinary Morris Mini Cooper S (MKII). The fact it is available
to hire from Lakes and Dales Classic Car Hire is in many ways quite
incredible. Tuned 1430cc engine, Jack Knight 5-Speed straight cut gearbox,
even a fly-off handbrake, all hallmarks of a car once used in competition
and now returned to road going spec. Watch this our review including a
drive up the infamous A686 in the North Pennines (UK) to the Hartside Cafe.

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.
