Vehicle History

Remarks

In March 1964 a pair of Cooper S variants appeared - the 970S and the 1275S. The 970S was a homologation special, using a shorter block than the 1071S. It was designed to compete in the 1.0-litre category and used a shorter stroke than the 1071S to attain 65bhp and because it had a larger bore than the 997 and 998cc Mini Coopers, the 970S could use larger valves. Around 965 were built in total.
