Bought back in 2009, Kevin Shales got hold of this ex-Steve Har­ris hill­climb Mini, with the in­ten­tion of turn­ing it into rally car. He’s since made quite a few changes in­clud­ing fully ad­justable front sus­pen­sion, Spax motorsport shocks, a full multi-point roll-cage, heated front screen, an MED 1380 race en­gine mated with a Jack Knight dog box, plus gus­seted and welded front and rear sub­frames, amongst other motorsport parts. De­spite a roll on its side ear­lier this year, this Mini is back to fight­ing fit with the re­place­ment pan­els freshly re­sprayed in that dis­tinc­tive Java Green hue.

Kevin’s sa­loon has been trans­formed into a rally car.
