Classic Mini Clubman Rally Race Car Project For Sale (1973)1973 Classic Mini Clubman Ex Rally car with RAC log book
Well where to start with this one. Itís a space framed 1973 Mini Clubman rolling shell with wide arches inspired by the mighty Metro 6R4, this former rally car was very competitive in its day with a tuned Mini A series engine mated to a Golf GTI LSD gearbox and a mixture of VW Golf / Polo suspension and brakes. Itís more or less how its was rallied but does not come with a complete engine (no head, pistons or carbs) but these parts are readily available if you wanted to keep to the A series engine or you could possibly fit one of the many VW engines that will bolt up to the gearbox, from a 1.4 to a 2.0 16V Golf engine possibly 1.8 turbo. All of course would need work or you possibly fit a bike engine, Vauxhall red top, Honda VTEC etc etc all popular engine swaps on classic Miniís.
Been sold as project needing work but does come with a current log book / V5 (will soon be tax free) and a RAC competition log book.

Not got time at the moment to finish so been sold as a project. You will have to arrange collection on a trailer or recovery truck as obviously can not be driven or A framed away. Might be able to deliver the mini locally but please check first.
