Hi just a thought but did the factory ever produce such a thing as a Mk1 Countryman with S running gear ? I was talking with a guy recently that reckons they did but I cannot find any reference to back this up.

From memory there were 5 built by John Cooper for selected special clients (Steve McQueen being one?) they've been discussed here a while back.

Applyards in Harrogate sold a special order mk2 woody s. A customer of mine worked there and lusted after it. He built a replica a few years ago.

He said it was ordered for the wife of one of their wealthy good customers and always dreamed of finding it in a garage in one of the huge houses in the really posh bit of harrogate
