Does the vehicle have to be a perfect example to qualify for entry? What about resto-mods, are they welcome as well?

While concours events are traditionlly geared towards unmodified cars, we do have a few classes with some latitude. We urge everyone to post their cars. Our selection committee will try to accomodate all suitable entries, as we put them into appropriate classes.

1964 Austin Cooper S

Andrew & Janelle Krueger

Summerfield, NC

Micro cars

This 1964 Austin Cooper S is the last 1071cc engine Cooper S built. There were 2,135 Austins manufactured. By 1980 this car was featured in Autoweek Magazine as the cover story comparing the Cooper S to the latest hatchback, the VW Rabbit. This car was found languishing in a garage in NC and I fully restored it to its original production specification, look, and feel (see Heritage certificate in photos). NOS parts were used, when available, and all proper weld points recreated in the exact position for any body repair. Correct and refurbished OEM hardware was retained including correct cylinder head bolt head markings. In addition, proper stenciling was used to create factory markings on the areas such as the fan belt, heater, oil cooler, sub-frames, and suspension parts (see pictures).

This is the only Austin Cooper S accepted into the Quail Lodge Car Show (2016), was First in Class at Hilton Head Concours in 2017 and First in Class in Carmel By the Sea in 2018. Go to these You Tube sites for more sights and sounds of the Austin Cooper S!
