1985 Austin Mini Cooper S Tribute - 1275cc 51bhp Carburettor

Uniquely combining one of the most sought after engines with the classical 60’s Cooper S styling and the iconic 90’s Cooper Sportspack wide stance, she's cool.
1.  Sought After Engine - Power, Tuning & Classical Feel

Upgraded to the sought after 1275cc 51bhp carburettor engine, she matches power (51bhp, 30% higher than the standard 1000cc) with tuning capability and that classical sound and feel (partially lost with later fuel injection models). Her engine is very sweet.
2. Professionally Tuned & Electronic Ignition Upgrade

Having been professionally tuned, her power has been optimised. Upgraded to electronic ignition, she’s more reliable.
3. Ready to Enjoy

Having had her engine professionally set-up, her brakes serviced and her engine serviced (Millers oil, filter, NGK spark plugs) and coming with 12 months MOT and no advisories, she is ready to enjoy.
4. Unique Design

Designed to bring together many of the most sought after parts and styles, she stands out. Below are the features which stand out to us.
  • A. Exterior

Combining the classical 60’s Cooper S features with the 90’s Cooper Sportspack stance and wide body, she looks awesome.

60’s Cooper S features include; the wavy grill, dummy twin petrol tanks, rear boot mounted Lucas spotlight and smaller Mk2 (1969-70) rear lights as well as Cooper badges, flappy sixties rear number plate proudly mounted with the private number plate B83 ANK (Italian Job reference) which is included.

90’s Cooper Sportspack style features include wide arches wrapped around new thirteen inch alleycats wheels with four chrome spot lamps (not currently wired up).
  • B. Interior

Sourcing some very sought after parts, she has half leather lightening bolt Mini 30th Anniversary Seats between union jack door cards, finished with the burr wood dash which incorporates not just the special Cooper triple green gauge, but also three extra central gauges.
5. Condition

Having been restored several years ago she is an excellent example for her year, that being said like any classic she has patina all round. She is a solid car with minimal signs of corrosion.

6. Soon to be Tax, MOT & ULEZ Exempt

Being first registered Saturday the 13th of April 1985, she is an early example which will within three years gain road tax free status, mot exemption and ULEZ free status.

  • We guarantee that your Mini will be mechanically perfect at the time of the sale. Mechanically perfect means that your Mini will be roadworthy with a recent MOT, that everything on your Mini will work correctly and that your Mini will be ready to enjoy.


    However, it is important to note that Mini's are classic cars opposed to brand new cars, classic cars will have wear and tear on all parts opposed to being built to a new standard and accordingly they  will require ongoing maintenance and we cannot be held liable for any ongoing maintenance after the time of the sale. That being said, we have a dedicated phone line to assist you in maintaining your Mini and sourcing replacement parts.
