Ultra-rare MINI up for auction

Cooper S 970 ‘S’ goes under hammer

When it comes to classic MINIs this is one many collectors would love to have in their garage – a 1964 Cooper S 970 ‘S’.

Set to go to auction in the UK next month, the MINI is expected to go for up to $85,000 AUD.

The homologation special was created to qualify the Cooper S for the under 1000cc category in racing and rallying and less than a thousand were built.

The car boasts engine and chassis numbers matching logbook records and an extensive history file including homologation papers, heritage certificate and 2004 FIA Historic Technical Passport.

Ultra-rare MINI up for auctionNick Whale, managing director of Silverstone Auctions, tells us the car should generate a lot of interest.

“This is a rare and very collectible car,”

“This represents the rarest Cooper S of all time so an original car like this with matching numbers throughout is extraordinary.”
