AUSTIN MINI MK 1 SUPER DE LUXE SPEEDWELL,1963
SPRINT STAGE 1
Chassis No. 373273

Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this unique icon of British motoring history. Genuine Speedwell-tuned Minis are quite impossible to find these days, and this Speedwell-tuned Mini had remained hidden from the world since 1981. The Mini was stored less than 2 miles from John Sprinzel and Graham Hill’s famous Speedwell tuning garage, in Cornwall Avenue, Finchley, London.

After more than 36 months of painstaking, back-to-bare metal re-commissioning by Mini marque experts, this matching-numbers Austin Mini Speedwell has been brought back to its former glory. After a thorough media blasting using a rotisserie method, it was completely etch-primed and expertly painted in the original Surf Blue cellulose (code 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 using British Motor Heritage Parts to maintain authenticity.

It also has its wonderful original Speedwell Formula wooden-rimmed steering wheel with polished spokes, Lucas headlamps, and Fiamm air horns.

This exceptional Mini can best be described as “collector-quality.”
