1972 Mini Cooper Innocenti1972 Mini Cooper Innocenti 1000 Export
Innocenti Mini's were built under the license of the BMC from 1961 to 1976. Generally considered to be a little nicer outfitted than the British original. Innocenti Mini's are highly prized by collectors.
This particular car lived most of its life in Milan, Italy. Currently wearing it's original number plates (reproduction). It has had a few modifications to make it a little more sporty: fender flares, 12" Supalite wheels (including matching spare), DTM style sport exhaust, sport steering wheel and clear tail lights. The interior presents well with the original vinyl seats and door panels in very good condition with expected minor wear. Headliner is in tach but missing the orignal interior lamp. Rear deck lid was recently produced with nice Rockford Fosgate speakers fitted. Period correct rear seat belts have been fitted as well. The exterior has had a repaint at some point in it life and presents well with minor blemishes.
It was imported into the USA in 2010 by a Navy officer who was stationed in Italy for a few years. All military documents included with the sale. The car currently has a NY state transferable registration. Some paperwork and receipts to recent service work.
Recent service work includes:Cylinder head replaced with remanufacturered 998cc cylinder head complete with new valves, valve guides, valve stem seals and seats.Valve adjustment performed with cylinder head replacementNew high performance aluminum radiator installedNew upper and lower radiator hosesSU carburetor rebuiltNew tie rod polyurethane suspension bushingsRear suspension cones recently replacedEngine mounts replacedBrake master cylinder rebuiltAll rubber brake lines replacedRight rear wheel cylinder replacedAll brakes adjusted and brake system completely flushedOil and filter serviceCoolant system flushed outPertronix electronic ignition installed with Flamethrower HV ignition coilNew spark plugs, wire set, cap and rotor installed.
The car had an aftermarket digital speedometer at the time of purchase so a correct Veglia speedometer with water gauge were sourced and installed. True mileage is unknown. Now all three gauges match and are mounted in the center pod.
