CUS­TOM TOUCHES

Name: Terry Bar­ton Car: 1989 Saloon Lo­ca­tion: Suf­folk

Af­ter do­ing a panel beat­ing ap­pren­tice­ship at a Rover deal­er­ship from 1990 to 1999 and own­ing sev­eral Minis, Terry Bar­ton thought it was time to get an­other. This 1990 saloon came up lo­cally look­ing very sorry for it­self, but was solid, with just 58,000 miles on the clock. Three-years later, in-be­tween restor­ing other cars, it’s fi­nally fin­ished! The restora­tion in­volved a full strip-down to bare me­tal, MkI front and rear end, lots of other sub­tle cus­tom touches like the frenched front plate, plus a full re­spray in Lam­borgh­ini Pearl Grey with one-off black gold painted pearl roof and arches, all pow­ered by a 1275cc en­gine with Stage 1 con­ver­sion. In­side, Terry’s fit­ted a full ’cage and full ’70s-style re-trim. He’s even had time to make a match­ing model and key. We think it’s stun­ning, well done Terry.
