APRIL 1993 MINI COOPER S MkII

Unique Cars - - AUCTION ACTION -

Back in the 1960s when it took one to catch one, loads of burly NSW cop­pers did their backs and knees try­ing to fold them­selves into Cooper S Mi­nis of this kind. They were nor­mally painted drab colours and came with metal sun­vi­sors which the speed­ers could pick from a cou­ple of miles away. A lot of th­ese cars when re­tired were taken straight from the govern­ment auc­tion for a make-over in­clud­ing brighter paint, a ra­dio and flashy wheels be­fore lin­ing up at one of the ‘per­for­mance’ car yards that ex­isted back then. Well worth hav­ing now.
