Car Catcher: A Real Cooper S With Upgraded Engine and Suspension

Sponsored Content Presented by Mosing Motorcars.

Finished in red with an ever-appropriate Union Jack on the roof, this 1966 Austin Mini is said to be a real Cooper S, though whose powerplant has been bored out to 1380cc.

The listing explains, however, that the upgraded engine and suspension are not original to the car.

Available for $27,999, this 1966 Austin Mini Cooper S can be found at Mosing Motorcars.

Looks fun, but that's a lot of money for a modified car with non original engine. That much for a nice original numbers matching car sure. Or am I really  out of touch with today's prices?

Adrian - the price isnt out of line for a modified mini, but seems pretty strong for this one - terrible paint and almost everything 'S' is missing. Some nice bits on it, but the pop riveted body number tag def causes concern.

Wow, that's shocking but thanks for the update.  Old guy hat on, I remember when a ten year old rust free Mini's were all £500 all day long.

Real Mini Coopers have gotten so expensive, probably because they have such worldwide appeal.
