1972 Mini Cooper "S" Upgrade



1972 Mini Cooper "S" Upgrade

Purchased new by the Hon Maxwell Aitken later to become Lord Beaverbrook.

According to the vendor the vehicle was purchased as a gift to Lady Beaverbrook who apparently took an instant dislike to it.

At this time we are not aware when the upgrade to "S" spec took place.

Fitted period alloys and arches and the all important full length Wabasto sliding sunroof.

Sparkling performance and very desirable.

Chassis No. 569813A

Engine No 269878 - original log book & V5

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Thank you.
