Formula Junior Price List 1960.

Here's a price list for Cooper Formula Junior racers from 1960.

Comprehensive Formula Junior Parts List 1960 - 1964.

I would like to thank Ian Garmey from NZ for allowing me to add this very interesting & rare item to my site. Thanks Ian! The Parts list is a 3Mb PDF download that will print very well for further reference.
Letter Regarding Mini Tuning Dated 1964.
This letter is a fantastic reminder as to how straightforward everything was in the early & Mid 1960's. The specification given for the car in this letter, is pretty laughable even when judged by the standards of a couple of years later, but the fact is that in 1964 you could build yourself a very competitive circuit racing Mini with very few trick bits at all.
