When this Austin Mini Cooper rolled off the assembly line in 1964, it was fitted with an 890cc motor. The current owner of this car wanted to add a little more power. In the coming month’s DynaSport will swap out the 890cc motor with an 1198cc Ducati motor.
But before the engine can be put in, the owner asked DynaSport to take care of some other tasks so that the Mini could handle the new power plant. Front disc brakes out of an Austin Cooper S were added, and in the back, aluminum rear drums were added. Completing the new brakes are stainless brake lines. For better handling, and an overall better driving experience, a rear adjust camber kit was added and up front are new adjustable control arms.
With the brake and suspension work done, the next task is to add the Ducati motor. Be on the lookout for updates on this exciting build!
