Correct Doug January 1966 the right hand tank became standard fitment on all S's. 

If in doubt, flat out. Colin Mc Rae MBE 1968-2007.

Give a car more power and it goes faster on the straights,
make a car lighter and it's faster everywhere. Colin Chapman.

As is the case with my car.  It is a '64 Morris S built with a single tank.  A previous owner added the RH tank to my car. 

Others will be sure to correct me but didn't the RH tank become standard on S models in 1966?

They were optional on S's for the first few years, and I would assume on Coopers too - anyone can fit one.

If this was "only" a Cooper, why does it have twin tanks? I thought that was only on the "S"

Yes, agree, very good, odd tho, it was a cooper and not a cooper S. And it was going great until for some stupic reason they just had to invoke a BINI MINI for whatever pathetic reason

BIG. AL

edit note; the word stupid above is spelled  correctly in mini speak' as was conceived by BC when he made his now famous quote “ARE YOU STONED OR JUST PLAIN STUPIC”, it would have gone unnoticed but after he had a 100 t-shirts made up with the quote showing “STUPIC”, it will liven in eternity, unfortunately

The whole series is pretty good and they restore some nice cars. However, as with many shows of this nature, it is evident that it is heavily scripted, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iuedDYfz6U

Rare video documentary on the classic Mini Cooper MkI from our friends at "For the Love of Cars." One of the best we have seen. [link]
