1998 Mini Cooper 1275

Story and History

1998 Mini Cooper 1275 - Built to Cooper S specification - 13.000 miles ONLY

What a smashing example we have here of a late mini built to the Coopers S specification by the Cooper Car Company

In 1997 Mini introduced a multi point fuel injection system to the 1275 engine along with various other upgrades to the car for both safety and practicality really civilising the formula

These included:

Direct electronic ignition

Radiator moved to the front of the engine bay to aid sound deadening

Driver airbag fitted to new leather steering wheel

Side impact beams

Pre-tensioned seatbelts

Remote alarm and immobiliser

Electric headlamp leveling switch

New column stalks with intermittent wipers

Headlining trimmed in soft cloth with sound deadening pads instead of the classic Leyland 'elastoplast'

Alloy throttle pedal - I'm sure this will add at least a horse power!

Rear passenger plastic storage bins

New very comfy seats including front headrests

And many more

If then you want the best example of a classic Mini shape you have to buy post 1997

In addition our car was given the Cooper Car Company upgrade to S specification including an up-swept twin exhaust and performance air filter along with other subtle changes uping the horsepower to 85 and making this the best sounding Mini I've ever encountered

The first owner used the car to take out his young children on weekends. The second and most recent owner, a neighbor of his, has used it sparingly and always kept it garaged hence the super low mileage of 13,000

We have a full history file with the car including 14 service stamps - 2 from the supplying dealer and the rest from the London Mini Center along with the original book pack too

This little Mini can be used as a daily car with all the benefits of modern motoring - cracking stereo, sound deadening, armchair comfy seats etc - or kept as it has been hitherto, for high days and holidays preserving that lovely low mileage
