A 1964 Austin Innocenti Mini Cooper Estate Wagon Woody. Dove grey with a burgundy interior.
No. Produced: 28,000 coupes, 1100 Wagons
“As a successor to the highly desirable Mini Cooper S (1964-1971), the rare Innocenti was built under license in Milan by the brothers behind Lambretta scooters. They built 28,200 cars on the Mini Cooper Mark III platform, and featured the same 1275cc engine with its twin Solex carbs, producing 71bhp.
It will propel the car to about 100mph, and return over 33mpg with easel With Mini Cooper S specifications to brakes, suspension, and steering, the car is quick, handles great holds all kinds of cargo with the back seat down and is unbelievable fun!”
A very nice straight body, the wood is in very good condition. The interior is all original, and looks good except the bottom of the driver’s seat which has a tear as you can see in the pictures. Good glass all the way around. Extremely solid undercarriage.
Mechanically, runs and drives very well.
Comes with the spare tire, jack and some tools.
An excellent original and rare driver needing minor cosmetics.
Any questions welcome.

During this time spent indoors during shelter in place, I have been able to continue work on the MGB GT restoration. The latest project has been tackling the gearbox. For a bit of history: The 3-syncro overdrive-equipped gearbox in this car is the one in it when the car was delivered. The gearbox was rebuilt […]
The coronavirus pandemic is having a major impact on automotive events, many of which are being canceled or postponed. Here are the latest announcements: The North American International Auto Show in Detroit, formerly held in January but moved this year to June in an effort to reinvigorate the event, has been canceled because the host […]
While “speedster” is most-often associated with “bathtub” Porsche 356 roadsters of the 1950s, the term goes back to the Brass Era days of stripped-down sports cars, from pricey Mercer Raceabouts to the facsimiles hand-built from abundant Model T Fords. The Pick of the Day is a sharp-looking 1914 Ford Model T Speedster that appears to […]
In the video-game world of make-believe, where you can perform extreme driving exploits in pretty much whatever vehicle you choose, the car model most commonly found on virtual roads is… wait for it… the Volkswagen Beetle. The Volkswagen leads the list for the model that games makers most often place in their products, from Grand […]
At some point, this coronvirus impingement will end and we’ll want to be out and about, cruising the highways and byways with our convertible tops down. A dealership in Fort Wayne, Indiana, suggests the Pick of the Day, a 1966 Lincoln Continental convertible, would be an ideal choice for the open road. “This is a […]
Larry Edsall, founding editor of the ClassicCars.com Journal, and I enjoy a mutual passion not only for the written word, but for motor racing in its many incarnations. We have been around the sport for longer than either of us cares to admit – but we both got to experience a gilded age, Larry in […]
Before I ever wrote about cars, I wrote about sports, albeit including motorsports, and one of the first things a young sportswriter learns, at least back when I was learning, is “there’s no cheering in the press box.” Your press pass entitled you to the best seat in the stadium or arena or whatever playing […]
With seemingly all car events canceled, our editors have some time on their hands, which means we’re doing a lot of “bench racing” these days. The subject of favorite racing drivers came up. Since managing editor Tom Stahler and founding editor Larry Edsall each has a long history covering motorsports, we suggested each select his […]

And the winner is… This has been an interesting exercise. Such as most car-centric discussions, there was disagreement, many laughs, camaraderie and more disagreements. But here is where it got interesting: After so many votes from readers, at the deadline, the ZR-1 and Miata each got 50 percent of the vote. Yes. That is correct. […]
