This Mini was imported from Australia in September 2014. It has a NOVA certifcate so all duties etc are paid. It has only covered running in mileage on a bench tester and 90% of components are brand new. All the special bits are there as can be seen and on a list which can be viewed in the file. lt is in beautiful condition and has never been raced. lt could be returned to a very quick and stylish road car or raced as was originally intended.
Cylinder head work and cam grinding was done by respected Australian race engineer and tuner Graham Russell, he is a colleague of legendary David Vizard and they consult each other on flow bench testing etc. The engine is tuned to run on 100 octane leaded race fuel but could be returned to run on unleaded with additive. The bodywork is an original 1962 Morris Mini 850cc shell which has been sandblasted and excess metal removed and has had a steel roll cage welded into the body shell. Inside, a new race seat and 3 harness and window net have been fitted and the paintwork is Castrol 2 pack in green. All windows are Lehan and fitted into the original frames where possible. All window and door rubbers are new and the front screen is a new laminated unit. The carpet is made up to suit the floor area and the battery is mounted in the left hand rear of the car.
This wonderful, quick “Special” is presented in fantastic all round condition in “ pea green” and would make a very interesting road car if converted but would also be a competitive entry to any hillclimb, sprint or circuit race. A lot of fun at a fraction of the cost if one was to build such a car to this specification.
