1964 Morris Mini Cooper S, Right hand dive This is a well known Mini Cooper S in the Midwest and has been a race car its whole life. Until two years ago it was raced on a regular basis with VSCDA and sometimes with CVAR. Now it is time for somebody else to enjoy this Mini Cooper. No expense has been spared keeping the car in tip top shape. The last time the engine was rebuilt was in 2004. After that the car has raced only twice. During the rebuild we changed synchro rings, Main/Rod bearings, cam shaft bearings, new oil pump, honed the cylinders and installed new Devis rings. The engine has straight cut drop gears, and the chassis has upgraded adjustable struts on ball joints, Spax adjustable shock absorbers and Hi-Lows. New front rotors and Hawk Blue brake pads. Rebuild the clutch master cylinder and replaced all the brake lines. We also put in a new steering rack and a quick shift kit. The car has a great cage, with plenty of side impact protection and driver safety. Also comes with a passengers seat. The harnesses are out of date, but we can install the old ones if so desired.
