Genuine Speedwell-tuned Minis are quite impossible to find these days. This Speedwell Mini has remained hidden from the world since 1981. AMT 250A was only rediscovered due to the impending demolition of its resting place; a dry garage in Cricklewood, North London, which is less than 2 miles from John Sprinzel and Formula One World Champion Graham Hill’s famous Speedwell tuning garage, in Cornwall Avenue, N3.
After 36 months of painstaking back-to-bare metal re-commissioning by Mini marque experts J.A Restorations in Essex, this matching-numbers Austin Mini Speedwell has been brought back to its former glory for any Mini collector to enjoy. After a thorough media blasting using a rotisserie method, it was completely etch-primed and expertly painted in the original Surf Blue cellulose (BU35) paint. A full pictorial record of the re-commissioning process is available to view. Retaining its originality at all possible stages of the professional restoration, parts were stripped, refinished and retained to continue the Mini's story, not to rewrite it. This was supplemented with the use of British Motor Heritage Parts to maintain authenticity. Included in the specification are: - Twin SU carburettor Speedwell Stage 1 Sprint Kit, Skimmed and polished head, Front disc brakes,Speedwell Formula steering wheel, Speedwell gauges, Speedwell engine cones, Uprated valve double springs, Speedwell manifold, Speedwell ram stacks and Polished exhaust manifold.
There were also several other extra original Speedwell parts that came supplied with the vehicle, and these are also included in the sale.
The Speedwell Mini will be sold complete with: - Original Austin handbook and service voucher book, Substantial vehicle history file, British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, Austin Mini A4 workshop folder, Austin Mini catalogue and paint colour chart, 1963 Autocar magazine featuring Speedwell Mini, Speedwell catalogues, price lists and period correspondence, Last blue V5 log book, and Last period tax disc, (now road tax exempt)and recent concours trophy.
It also has both sets of keys, the Hardura tool kit roll with original slim tools, the orange car jack and protective bag. Original Krooklock (with key).
An MOT test was carried out (with no advisories), and she drives beautifully with surprising power, (the Speedwell Sprint kit reduced Austin’s 0 to 60 mph time by over 9 seconds!) and is all ready for a new owner to enjoy and display. Due to its rarity, this car has been featured by magazine journalists and has won the best in show concours trophy at Classics at the Villa. The valuable original period number plate will also be included in the sale.
Rarer than almost any variant of the iconic Mini, AMT 250A has undergone a 36-month sympathetic restoration. To describe this special Mini as ‘collector-quality’ would be an understatement and is the perfect car to show at the Mini 60th anniversary celebrations. The Speedwell Mini has been realistically priced to sell, so serious enquiries only please.
