No other British car has ever equaled the cult status of the Mini Cooper and Cooper S models. They established a fanatical following as a "hot hatchback" from 1961 to 1971 thanks to their unique combination of performance, practicality, charm, and competition pedigree. The popularity and image remains so strong that half of Rover's current Mini production is of the new-generation Cooper model.
Original Mini Cooper and Cooper S is the essential companion to these cars. It reveals how the models—from the 997cc to the 1275cc MkIII—were altered throughout production, and all the changes are shown. Innocenti, Authis, Australian, and Rover Coopers are also included.
To provide information that will assure 100 percent originality of a Mini Cooper and Cooper S, the original specifications have been taken directly from the factory production records, parts lists, and catalogs, as well as information from respected restorers and enthusiasts. This book is the most comprehensive survey of the Mini Cooper that has ever been published.
More than 200 color photographs show every Mini Cooper specification in detail. Author John Parnell and photographer Paul Debois selected cars of the highest quality and authenticity to provide a valuable reference source for owners, restorers, buyers, and enthusiasts.
