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.
