Orig­i­nally an 850, Dar­ren bought this Mini in Au­gust 2014. It had been stored since 1988 be­cause of an en­gine fire. Al­though rust free, the A-pan­els and scut­tle were re­placed, and it was pro­fes­sion­ally re­sprayed in Tweed Grey. Dar­ren then got hold of a 1300 GT en­gine, which he had re­built and re­bored by Dutch­speed rac­ing to 1380cc. This en­gine is fit­ted with some tasty kit, in­clud­ing Pow­er­max pis­tons, a Kent 276 camshaft, ARP bolts, 1.5 roller rock­ers and twin HS6 car­bu­ret­tors. The whole project took three-years to com­plete and it looks stun­ning.

Look­ing fab­u­lous in Tweed Grey.
