1999 classic rover mini cooper s touring by john cooper garages

Available between 1997 and 1999, the Cooper S Touring was a conversion offered by John Cooper Garages for the Mk7 Mini Cooper MPI. The conversion, which was virtually the same as the Cooper S Sport 5, included a high-compression performance cylinder head, high-lift rockers, larger inlet valves and a Janspeed exhaust system with twin upswept pipes. These enhancements increased the power output to 85bhp and reduced the 0-60mph time to 9.95 seconds. Unlike the Sport 5, the S Touring conversion retained the Mini’s original 4-speed gearbox with taller 2:7 final drive, resulting in more relaxed touring at higher speeds, hence the Touring name. Aesthetic details included ‘Cooper S Touring’ side decals, body coloured wheel arches, stainless steel door step covers with ‘John Cooper’ script, alloy door handles and a burr walnut dashboard and door cappings. Each Mini was fitted with a John Cooper Garages conversion plaque to the crossmember engraved with its unique car number. The S Touring conversion was available on both standard and Sportspack specified Mini Coopers.

This Rover Mini Cooper S Touring, car number 98-S-144, was originally supplied by John Cooper Garages on 11th January 1999 and is presented is desirable Tahiti Blue with a white roof and bonnet stripes, over a black leather-trimmed interior. The Mini has been enthusiast-owned its entire life and has covered just 64,000 miles, with a comprehensive history file to warrant the mileage. This particular example also benefits from a later 7.5-inch ‘Cooper S’ front brake conversion and is sold newly serviced and MOT’d.

Phil is a really genuine, honest, respectful and polite man to deal with. He was very flexible and made our transaction very smooth, even completing all the paperwork and kept me fully informed throughout. I would not hesitate to use the company again. Thank you Phil.

Gemma Page

From start to finish Phil was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Knowledgeable, professional and kind. I absolutely adore my new (but old!) Mini Cooper. She's a beauty! Would definitely recommend and if I'm in the market for a classic again, Phil Mires Classic Cars would be my first port of call.
