Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States

Up for your bidding pleasure is my very rare and well-kept example of a 1972 Austin Mini Cooper!! This is a rare Right Hand Drive model and it is not your average mini... This mini started life as a mini 1000 but has had a significant horsepower bump with the following engine modifications:

-Bored out A+ 1275

-Hypatec flat top pistons

-940 head

-276 cam

-hif6 su carburetor

-Full rc-40 exhaust.


To help this speedy Mini Cooper shift it has:

-New rod shift gearbox

But what about driving around the corners and come to a safe and quick stop:

-New bushings

-New ball joints

-Adjustable ride height suspension cones

-1.5 degree camber control arms

-Adjustable caster angle. (Note: all suspension work completed in 2012)

Worried about rockers or floor pans!? Well Don't!! WHY?

-Replaced floor pan (there is still light rust holes in floor pan but is currently in drivable and stable condition!)

-Replaced rockers


Overall this car was set up to accelerate quickly, go around turns like a GO-KART and stop safely. The paint is a few years old and is in good condition. I will be including Thule roof rack as well. I have a clean Virginia title in hand ready to transfer!!! All turn signals, and lights work, the windshield wipers even work! Oil pressure and gas gauges work along with the aftermarket cd player, this thing can be driven everyday!! The odometer and speedometer are INOP due to an old cable needing replacement, this is really the only thing that I would want to fix but have gotten used to driving without those two items.

VIN # XA2S1N617371A 

I am only selling this vehicle inside of the good ol' U.S.A! I will expect a non-refundable deposit within 24 hours of the auction close and full payment by cash, or certified check. If you decide to use PayPal for the full balance of the car YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL FEES!! I will not pay fees on a full PayPal transaction so please keep this in mind PRIOR to bidding. I don't mind using PayPal for the deposit. I have done my best to describe this beautiful little mini cooper but please ask questions prior to bidding because this is being sold AS-IS. Please keep in mind this car is 42 years old and will not be perfect, although I have tried!!! I will make transaction quick and easy for the winning bidder. I have bought and sold cars before and understand what needs to be done. 


Good luck bidding and you will LOVE this thing!!!

Mini announces thoroughly modern engines and chassis for 2014 Cooper

Sun, 29 Sep 2013 18:00:00 EST

The 2014 Cooper will come with a three-cylinder engine and the Cooper S will get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, both with Mini's TwinPower turbochargers.
We have seen spy photos of the all-new Mini Cooper. We have been teased about its drivetrain. Now we have the engine details confirmed by BMW.

Mini finally lands its full blackflip

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 10:01:00 EST

French stuntman Guerlain Chicherit hit the ski slopes of Tignes, France over the weekend - not to enjoy the fresh snow but to perform the first-ever unassisted backlip in a car, which was teased last month.
The unassisted part of the stunt comes from the fact that he Chicherit, in a special rally-prepped Mini Countryman, uses a regular, solid ramp rather than any specially modified ramps that have been used in the past to pull off this stunt. Unfortunately, after 18 months of practice, you'd think the video would be more entertaining by showing more closeups or better angles of the stunt.
Either way, you can check out Chicherit and his Countryman nail the back flip in the video posted below, and Mini has provided a press release and some high-res shots for the stunt as well.

Lego Mini Cooper coming in August [w/video]

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 17:01:00 EST

Lego isn't just for kids anymore. A while back, the company cleverly realized that adults liked its connecting blocks as much as kids but wanted a more sophisticated project to take on. It offers a whole set of Expert models, including a wickedly cool Volkswagen Bus from a few years ago. Now, it's taking aim at automotive enthusiasts again with the recently announced classic Mini Cooper set due to go on sale on August 1 for $99.99.
This is a seriously cool Lego model. At nine inches long, five inches wide and four inches tall, the car is certainly compact (as a Mini should be), but it contains 1,077 pieces. It's finished in the classic Mini look with a British Racing Green body with white roof, hood stripes and mirror caps. The doors, hood and trunk all open up, and there's even a little, simulated engine. The interior includes features like a turning steering wheel and movable gearshift and handbrake. In the boot, there is a cute picnic set, and even a spare tire hidden under the floor. If you want to show off your handiwork after it's built, the roof is removable to peer inside.
Expect dads around the world to be unwrapping these when the holidays roll around. Scroll down to watch one of Lego's designers detailing its latest set and read the full release about it, below. The gallery shows the Mini off from all of its blocky angles, as well.
