Classic Car Auctions says:

A well-crafted combination of Mk1 fun and modern features...

 

  • Based on a c1965 bodyshell and upgraded to meet modern driving requirements
  • It's not clear when the project commenced but the 'new' car was first registered in 1987
  • The idea was to combine the fun-factor of early Minis with later features
  • Fitted with a 1275 engine, uprated suspension, front discs etc.
  • Attractively finished in a delightful blue/grey with a fully restored timber frame
  • The interior looks fabulous with later seating in red leather and smart red carpeting
  • The dashboard, fascia and steering wheel are from a later Cooper (Mk VII?) 
  • The quality of the workmanship is superb throughout and rarely equalled
  • Enhanced with Superlight chrome-alloy wheels. The registration FSU 607 remains
  • With our vendor since 2006 forming part of a substantial Mini collection
  • Lightly used recently. 2012 MOT @21,679 miles, current mileage 22,254 (atoc)
  • A well-mixed cocktail of Sixties Boy-Racer and modern practicality
