Description: 1970 Austin Cooper S 1275 MK2 No reserve Carte grise française Châssis n° 1340577A - Préparation exceptionnellement soignée - Modèle le plus emblématique - Utilisation de pièces d''époque - Sans réserve Construite et livrée en 1969 puis immatriculée pour la première fois en France le 5 Février 1970 cet exemplaire est un des derniers Cooper S 1275 cm³ MK2 fabriqués. Immatriculé par son propriétaire actuel le 6 février 1990, il a bénéficié d''une restauration totale étalée sur près de 26 ans en utilisant un maximum de pièces authentiques pour en faire une réplique la plus proche possible d''une voiture " usine " en configuration " groupe 6 " selon les règlements des années 60. Le travail, effectué sans considération de temps ni de coût, a dépassé les 50.000 €. La majorité des pièces et détails de cette voiture sont spécifiques : carrosserie allégée avec capot avant en polyester, panneaux de porte en aluminium, ou encore vitres en perspex, excepté le pare-brise en verre chauffant " usine ". Le bloc moteur d''origine, réalésé pour atteindre 1380 cm³, est gavé par un Weber 45 DCOE et couplé à l''efficace boîte 5 vitesses " Jack Knight " re-fabriquée neuve " sur-mesure ". Le moteur, totalement reconstruit, développe actuellement 110cv, et reste à roder. La partie châssis, avec ses nombreuses possibilités de réglages, est également aux spécifications " usine " tout comme l''habitacle qui comporte de nombreux détails spécifiques dont le siège-baquet ultra-léger du pilote. Cette voiture soignée est éligible dans la majorité des compétitions historiques et est accompagnée d''un important dossier de factures de restauration et du manuel originel du conducteur en français. French title Chassis n° 1340577A - Extremely well prepared - The most iconic model - Use of period spare parts - No reserve Built and delivered in 1969, and first registered in France on 5 February 1970, this is one of the last Cooper S MK2 1275 cc examples to be produced. Registered by the current owner on 6 February 1990, the car has been totally restored in a project lasting 26 years. Genuine parts have been used wherever possible in order to create a replica as close as possible to a factory car built to Group 6 specification in line with 1960s regulations. The project, with no budget or time constraints, cost over 50 000 €. The majority of parts and details are specific to the car: lightweight body with fibreglass bonnet, aluminium door panels, perspex windows except the " factory " heated glass windscreen. The original engine block was re-bored to 1380cc, linked to a Weber 45 DCOE, and a newly re-manufactured bespoke " Jack Knight " five-speed gearbox fitted. The completely rebuilt engine produces 110 bhp and requires running in. The fully adjustable chassis has also been built to " factory " specification, as has the interior with specific features such as the ultra-lightweight racing seat. This meticulously prepared car is eligible for many historic race events and comes with a comprehensive file of restoration invoices, and the original driver''s manual in French.
