RARE AND QUIRKY
Name: Paul Wylde Cars: 1971 Stimson Minibug Location: Dudley, West Midlands
Paul has owned this unusual Minibug for 25 years. It was restored four-years ago, having previously being owned by his brother. A full nutand-bolt rebuild, the restoration also included new framework. One of just 160 made in righthand drive, Paul tells us there are just a handful left on British roads now. Powered by a 1275cc A+ engine from an MG Metro, we reckon all that power and the lightweight build should equal a fun drive. This isn’t the only Mini-based kit car that Paul owns, as he’s almost finished restoring a 1972 Stimson Safari 6 from 1972, too.
Lightweight and powerful = fun!
