The car competed at Chateau Impney 16,17 and 18. It won its class in 18 and fastest production saloon. It has competed in both the New Barn series and the Classic Hillclimb both run by Prescott. It's last outing was to Caffeine and Machine to Russell Brookes tribute meeting. The shell has not been cut, and all the important Cooper S parts are still present meaning the car coulb be reverted/restored to original road spec. This is a very early 1275 car, supplied when the right hand tank was an option, and in this case not specified with one making it somewhat unusual. This is confirmed by the heritage record. The car also retaind it's buff logbook.
