Description

Has any other British car ever equaled the cult status of the Mini, particularly the ‘hot’ Cooper and Cooper S versions built from 1961 to 1971? Their fanatical following says not. Genuine  examples are expensive and highly prized today, but fake Coopers abound and many cars have been inappropriately modified or incorrectly restored. This is the definitive guide to correct factory specifications and equipment for all Coopers from the 997cc MkI to the 1275cc MkIII S, with comprehensive color photography of cars selected for their quality and authenticity.

The author

John Parnell bought his first Mini Cooper, a rare 970S, in 1968, and has never looked back. His interest in the cars led to him becoming the editor of the Mini Cooper Register’s magazine, and his 1993 book Original Mini Cooper has become the definitive work on every detail of original factory specification.
