| Description

The car modelled was built at BMC’s Longbridge plant, Austin’s original home, on March 25th, 1965 and despatched to distributors E. W. Jackson and Son Limited, Doncaster, on April 12th. They supplied it to Austin dealership McDonald’s in Mexborough, Yorkshire, who initially used it as a demonstrator.

In 2017, after some years off the road, it was restored to factory specification using the original matching-number components by Essex-based specialist J.D. Classics under the auspices of award winning Mini restoration expert, Scott Turner. It was then purchased by Mike Cooper, son of John Cooper; the man who spotted the motor sport potential in his friend Alec Issigonis’ ‘District Nurses car’ and developed the Mini Cooper.

Austin Mini Cooper s almond green

After the eager wait to get this model I felt very disappointed and mislead on the photo it shows the model with jewel headlights however mine arrived it's got the cheap looking chrome plastic headlights that early vanguards models had from the late 90s as well as some marks on the paint around wing tops very misleading and disappointed
