90hp in a lightweight 680kg body...! Extremely tuned and equipped with the precious Checker Marcos engine Cooper S Mk-I tribute.... The power that overflows like a raging torrent is obviously not the same...! The tuned minis have been cherished for a long time by loving owners. Tuned Minis that have been cared for by loving owners for a long time... This is a car that takes you back to Le Mans in the 60's...! Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

The high pitched sound of the tuned short-stroke engine on the mountain surface at an altitude of 1500m… The Cooper S Mk-I Homage classic mini came out of the corner with a well-balanced posture, and the engine sound alone makes you feel “something different… It stands in a grove of trees with an aura of something different….

 

I still want to drive a 1275 Mk-I someday…”

 

The current owner, who has been a Mini freak for a long time, got this tuned Mini with a 1275cc engine built by the previous owner a few years ago, and has been enjoying it in daily use in a great environment with winding roads right outside the front door. I have been able to enjoy it in daily use….

 

And last April, it was officially inspected…. Now it’s time to go…! However, due to unavoidable garage circumstances and other reasons, the car is still almost fully inspected, but we have decided to publish this article out of sheer desperation….

The exterior of the Mini Cooper S Mk-I 1275 is reminiscent of the Mini Cooper S Mk-I 1275. The first thing that catches the eye is the appearance....

It has been several years since it was fully painted, and although there is one small rust float under the right door, as shown in the photo, the car is in very good condition overall, with a fresh and brilliant silver coloring and a black roof that is very beautiful with the trees showing through. The rain gutters show no rust at all, indicating that the car has been carefully kept in a good environment….

 

The front face of the car features 7-inch modern LED lights. The current owner, who likes the classic look, is a bit concerned about this and has already ordered Lucas headlamps, which can be installed if the next owner wishes to replace them….

Only 100 units were released in Japan in 1995 under the theme of "Revival of the Cooper S of yesteryear. The strong heart of the Checkered Marcos Mini, which was released in 1995 as a limited edition of only 100 units in Japan under the theme of "Revival of the Cooper S of yesteryear Transplanted into a Rover Mini that pays homage to the Mk-I... The endless dream of the past owners has sublimated this unit into a truly fascinating Mini...!

The detailed records were transcribed and introduced later in the “2013-2021 Handwritten Maintenance Handbook” by the previous owner of this car. The detailed engine oil and tire change history shows how he was aiming for a “fun-to-drive Cooper S MK-I homage….

 

The highlight is the specification of the center meter that displays 200km that is particular about the Mk-I specification…….It was replaced with another one after running until just 60,000km…….The needle and convex glass of the MK-I meter were set for several months before it was put back. The car is still “unknown”, but it is still very beautiful and exciting to look at today…!

 

Further, the memoirs reveal the following…

 

The engine and other parts from a 1995 Checker Marcos Mini that was unfortunately scrapped due to a single car accident were secured and transplanted into a 1989 Mini 1000 body. The roof and body were then painted, and the hood badge, serial plate, rear plate, steering wheel center horn button, and colorless and distinctive front and rear glass were transplanted, as well as the dummy door hinges, the hinges of a truly classic Innocenti Mini, and the stainless steel The sash and also the colorless rear side glass, Mk-I front skirt, rear lamps, etc…….

And April 1, 2022…

 

The current owner was very enthusiastic about the Cooper S Mk-I Hommage, so he decided to have it officially inspected and reformatted (E-99X reformatted) so that he could continue to drive it with peace of mind, and the current inspection is valid until the end of March 2024. It has been continuously changed with oil change and element change every 2 to 3,000 km, and is now in use.

 

It is really hot in the fresh green! Running through the fresh green with full of charm…! Cooper S Mk-I Hommage with a lot of attention…!

 

Please check out the video and see the classic Mini with a different look!

1989 Rover Mini Cooper S Mk-I Hommage Checkered Marcos 1275cc, post interview...

The first Checker Motors company in Japan ordered a limited run of 100 units from Marcos in England, and the factory-complete tuned mini sold in 1995 was the Checker Marcos Mini….

 

The theme was “Revival of the Cooper S of yesteryear…”

 

The tuning was done by a racing driver and genius tuner named Richard Longman, one hand of Daniel Rich of Downton Engineering, and the result was an extreme yet well-balanced car that can be described as a modern version of the Cooper S, with a hot performance reminiscent of the Cooper S of yesteryear. The result is a modern version of the Cooper S. It is both extreme and well-balanced.

 

The other day, I had a chance to drive a racing-tuned Cooper S Mk-I, and while it is a very attractive car, it is now astronomically priced and valuable, so it may be difficult to drive it in any situation without hesitation…. But, it is still a little difficult to ride without hesitation in any situation…….

 

At such times…

 

If only there was a “perfect homage” that could be pulled out at any time…

 

I think that irreplaceable “time” would always slip back to the 1960s and 1970s, when riding was really fun….

 

This movie is edited with the background music of the time (Jeff Beck style) chosen with this in mind….

 

90hp in a lightweight 680kg body…! This is a tribute to the Cooper S Mk-I with the precious Checker Marcos engine tuned to the extreme…. The power that surges out of this car is clearly not the same…! A tuned Mini that has been cared for by loving owners for a long time… a car that takes you back to Le Mans in the 60’s…!

 

A very nice Mini…
