Picked this up yesterday as my first car










Spec:

- 1275 engine, LCB Manifold & RC40 exhaust. Mini spares inlet manifold, ported unleaded head, engine steady, HIF44 carb. Front discs.

-Body resprayed red (was originally brown!), Superlite wheels.

- Half leather interior, wallnut dash, mountney steeting wheel.

Also has a cool number plate, which is meant to be worth about £1500!.

Overall it is really tidy. I will be adding more goodies to it in the near future..

QUOTE Why don't you stuff a 1700 V-tech in there

I'd put a Rover V8 in the boot driving the front wheels


Don't laugh to hard, someone actually did that in the sixties!!

Thanks for the comments lads.

Vtec would be nice.. you can actually get ready fabricated subframes for the Honda Vtec. Vauxhall 2.0 16v engine fits too!


Gunna get a headunit soon...

Congrats on your first mini!!!
Good choice on the clubman as well, they are so much easier to work on under the bonnet.................looks like an Equinox interior you have.

Does it have 7.5" or 8.4" front discs????
If they are 7.5", put it back on 10" wheels!!!

Cheers mate.

Yep, has the Equinox interior


It has the later 8.4" discs, so 10's wouldn't fit
Anyway 10" wheels could be a pain as my road has speed bumps all the way down!

Youll be surprised how little difference in diameter there is between the 10 and 12" wheels (Im talking 165/70/R10 - real mini tyres
)

What sort of air filter are you using???
