Cooper Car Co. Works Mini
This is one of many illustrated classic car guides I've created for the community. I hope you enjoy it. If you wish to find out more about the classic Mini Cooper art featured in this guide please click here.
Cooper ran a Works Team in the sixties with cars in the colours of the F1 team (British Racing Green with Snowberry White longitudinal stripes) with the legendary Cooper Car Co on the door tops, and driven by Sir John Whitmore, John Handley, John Rhodes and John Fitzpatrick, amongst others. Competing against other successful teams such as the Alexander and Broadspeed outfits, these thrilling green and white racers were a very familiar sight on the circuits during the 1960s. Later, of course, they were the inspiration for the new generation of Rover Mini Coopers. Towards the end of the 1960s, BMC tightened its belt and took the works-associated teams in-house. Cooper then ran an independent team of Minis in yellow and black racing colours.
