The interior was listed as Dark Grey and Dove Grey and the only option selected appears to have been a fresh-air heater. The car has twin tanks, which was originally an option on the 1275 S, but became standard later. It was first registered on 4th April 1968 and, pleasingly, in the car’s history file there is a full keeper history, issued by the DVLA (photocopies) offering a fascinating insight into earlier ownership. Also included in the file are previous tax discs, old MOT Certificates and 13 pages of invoices showing that the little Cooper was subject to a bare-shell restoration in 1998. The labour cost alone was £4,102 plus VAT, which would equate to about three times that amount today, so it must have been a substantial restoration. The car was purchased by our vendor in 1987 and the odometer currently indicates 31,826 miles, however the MOT from June 2003 lists the mileage at 31,758 so it has obviously had very little use since then. The car is in decent, honest condition and is eminently usable as is with a light recommission, however it wouldn’t take much, just a bit of time and effort, to take it to the next level. We feel that the Cooper is sensibly guided for a low-mileage, 1275 S from long- term ownership, so why not come along to the Silverstone Festival and have a look for yourself. Super little 1275 S on offer from 36-years current ownership, having been purchased by our vendor in 1987 and showing a remarkable 31,826 miles. More Details Lot 735 Bid On Lot 735
