The restoration of this mini has been a special project for NVR (Nottingham Vehicle Restorations Ltd) to complete for its present owner over a period of nine months, and has only had one former family owner.

This mini has been completely restored to its original condition, with additional extras, using a variety of genuine heritage mini panels and parts.

Before any work could commence, the engine, doors, bonnet, bumpers, spats, wheels and sub-frames were removed just leaving the bare shell.


This shell was then stripped down to bare metal, all rust spots removed and new panels welded on. The rear sub-frame was removed and a new one fitted, this was then sand blasted together with the front sub-frame and then powder coated.

Various new parts were fitted prior to repainting:-

? 2 New front wings
? New front panel
? 2 A panels
? Outer sills
? 1 Door skins
? 1 Rear valance
? 2 Front section inner wings
? 1 Scuttle panel
? New bonnet
? New boot lid
? New windscreen with green top tint
? New Mini Cooper badges, decors and coach

The shell has been lead filled where necessary, etch primed, primed and finally painted to its original (British Racing Green) colour and finished in a low bake oven.

All the sub-frames were rebuilt using poly bushes plus engine mountings, new track rod ends, ball joints and front and rear flexi hoses together with new shock absorbers all round.

The wheels were shot blasted and powder coated silver and then new tyres fitted. New chrome valves have been fitted with mini cooper dust caps and genuine mini cooper wheel centres along with a full set of wheel nuts.


Following the removal of the engine, it was stripped, cleaned, painted and put back together with a variety of new parts which included:-

? Gaskets and seals.
? New clutch, slave and master cylinder.
? New speedo cable.
? The engine bay has been fitted out with
  a lot of stainless steel parts as well as
  a new radiator, water pump, distributor
  coil, plugs and leads.
? New wiring loom and complete new exhaust
  system with manifold.
