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.
