In 1969 under British Leyland the Mini got a facelift - the Austin and Morris branding was dropped - and all Minis were produced at Longbridge.
The doors now had the hinges inside and wind-up windows were fitted. Whilst the standard models reverted to the original dry rubber cone suspension set-up, the Cooper retained the recently introduced Hydrolastic system.
Also in the new Mini line up was the Clubman, including a performance model, the 1275GT. BL boss Donald Stokes decided not to continue with the licensing agreement with John Cooper, and the Cooper model was dropped.
One of the last 150 Coopers to be produced, this one family owner car was presented to the Trust in 2010.
