Preparing Our Mini Cooper S for Its Unveiling at the Mitty

Let the welding begin. Our Mini Cooper S turned out to be rustier than we thought.
Our driveline is now completely finished and running.

Our 1967 Cooper S project car, sponsored by Mini Mania, eBay Motors and Eastwood is coming along nicely. We now have the driveline completely finished and running. The rear suspension is also done.

We’re currently welding away, as this car turned out to be rustier than we thought. Once the metalwork is complete, we plan to return the car to its original Tartan Red color and assemble it in time to unveil at the Classic Motorsports Mitty presented by Hagerty in late April.

It was an itsy bitsy, teeny-weeny rally-winning project Mini. Subscribe to Classic Motorsports and get them in your mailbox.
