Description

For sale 1966 Mk1 mini in Almond green with a old English white roof.
Re-shelled in the 1980's and had over £20, 000 worth of body work done to it. Most of the work was doner by Mini Division in Stockport.
Currently fitted with replica mini light wheels but also comes with a set of Cooper replicas and hubcaps. Both sets of wheels come with Yokohama tyres.
The car has Cooper S brakes fitted to the front ad stainless steel bumpers back and front.
Still fitted with a 3 syncro gearbox but now has a fully rebuilt 998cc engine including refurbished head so runs on unleaded. It also has a lightened balance flywheel and new clutch.
The engine is fitted with a HS4 carb fitted to a Mini spares manifold, Lucas DB105 sports coil and a 1300A+ Powerspark distributor.
As you will see from the pictures it has a Stitch up boot liner to add that finishing touch.
The car has not moved in a long time hence the sale, it is such a shame it is not getting the use it should.
Due to it not being used it will need re-commissioning before using. I originally purchased the car to convert in to a historic rally car as I was doing classic rallies in my 1966 MGB and the guys in rally minis always seemed to be having more fun.
Once I got it home it was clear to see this is far too good for rallying so I finished it off just to show. This never happened and the car has just sat ever since.
Before me the car was owned by a guy in the Army and as he was about to leave the forces he needed the money for a deposit on a house.
Prior to that and the people that spent all the money, it was owned by a Husband and Wife team who were both armed response officers for the police and the mini was their baby and no expense was spared.
