Sellers original description:
1971 Mini Cooper 1300 Innocenti Convertible.
Finished in Ferrari Rosso Corsa and custom Black cloth/Leather interior, full sport seats.
This Mini has to be one of the best driving Mini's I have ever driven. I personally owned many early Mk1 and Mk2 Mini's including an original Cooper S from '67. This Car was built in Spain at Innocenti factory and sent to the Italy for their market. Well sorted and no expense spared from this owner with over $5K spent just on the Ferrari paint alone. Look at the full list below on all the upgrades and top level performance. The roof was professionally done and looks to be a factory built. Solid and very tight, this was a period correct customize done to many Mini's through their full production till the mid 90's. Perfect soft top and boot fit exact and give a very clean and dry fit. This car needs absolutly nothing but you to drive off the rails on your next weekend rally or cruise night.
