This is Colin’s 1275 GT, that he com­pletely re­stored him­self. Out­side, this GT has been de­seamed front and rear and a body kit fit­ted. The fin­ish­ing touch is the dis­tinc­tive Rey­nard Bronze paint job, which is a trib­ute to the Club­man shell that was pulled from the Long­bridge tun­nels a while back. In­side, the high­light of this Mini must be the seats, which Colin tells us came from an­other Long­bridge pro­duced car, the MG ZR. More in­ter­est­ingly, Colin’s 1275 GT matches his own birth month and year – it’s his pride and joy and will never be sold.

Body kit looks smart.
