I am very pleased to announce the listing of a very rare Early 998cc engine produced originally for the Mini Cooper in the 60's.

The Story:
This engine was found here in Charlotte, NC outside a friends garage rusting and collecting dust. I decided to pick it up and do a full nut and bolt restoration so someone seeking an early engine like this, might be able to bolt it up and give it a second life. The entire restoration process was documented on my YouTube channel Classic Mini DIY.
