Mark Woods 1992 Mini Cooper Ip­swich

My 1992 main­stream Mini Cooper was bought as a project, as the pre­vi­ous owner had stripped it out ready for the body­work to be sorted. I re­placed the front end and car­ried out repairs to the boot floor, in­ner and outer sills, and bulk­head. The shell wasn't too bad at all re­ally. The front end was re­sprayed and I cleaned the rest up, although the en­gine wasn't so good. How­ever, af­ter an over­haul it now runs re­ally well with a Stage 1 kit in­stalled. The Monte Carlo al­loys and Group 2 arches set it off a treat. Like any Mini, there's al­ways more to do! Big thanks go to Si­mon at Wat­tisham Mini Club for use of his trailer and Mark and Ger­ald Rose for the work­shop.

A set of Cooper Monte Carlo LE al­loys re­ally set the Mini off a treat.

The in­te­rior is mostly orig­i­nal.
