Gateway Classic Cars of Chicago is proud to present this 1965
Austin Healy Mini Cooper. This right hand drive Mini is an absolute
riot to speed around town thanks to a rev-happy 1275cc inline
4-cylinder. Though only rated around 60 horsepower, the low weight
of around 1300lbs means it still has plenty of pep. the 4-speed
manual transmission gives positive feedback as you cycle through
the gears, and the engine loves to scream all the way to redline.
the Austin started life as a left hand drive import model and spent
its earlier life in California. It was only transported to the
midwest in the last few years after the transformation to a right
hand drive Cooper S tribute was completed. A performance header and
twin-carburetor set up helps put a little more "oomph" into this
little pocket rocket. Anyone driving this would be hard-pressed to
stop yourself from smiling constantly. The Mini was repainted this
beautiful silver with a black roof, and the interior was completely
gone through with an updated interior, a John Cooper Works steering
wheel, and a set of recovered Recaro seats in the front. A Chrome
roll bar in the interior adds to the racecar feel you get while
pushing the tachometer to the redline. Take this Mini for a spin
and have the time of your life!
