1967 Austin Cooper S

KVJ 276F is a late registered 1967, MK I, 1275, Austin Cooper S owned by Patricia Käsehagen Webb.

In March 2012 and with a very tight deadline, The Mini Works commenced on a complete nuts and bolt restoration of KVJ.  The aim was to have it ready for the National Mini Cooper Day at Beaulieu at the beginning of June, and have it entered into the concours competition.

Shell Preparation

With the shell having being completed by end of April, the car was sent to the paint shop in early May.
