1974 Austin "Authi" Mini Cooper 1275gt LHD For Sale

This little mini has been with my family for about 12 years. Was my late fathers “retirement restoration project” which he never started due to his sudden passing. I was given it by my Mother 3 years ago and decided to have it restored. This is a VERY reluctant sale and only due to a resent house project needing funding. See description below: 1974 Originally an Austin “Authi” Mini built in Pampaloma SPAIN. LHD. It was factory built as a Mini 1000cc. After doing some research on the Authi Minis I discovered they did an 1275GT which had the classic front (unlike the Clubman Uk). I decided to restored this as a 1275GT... Although I really wanted to keep the original engine so had it limited to 1078cc. Restored by a renowned Mini restoration company in the Uk. No expensive spared. (UK V5 & MOT) I have 100’s of photos of the restoration and an online photo album for you to see. Engine was rebuilt and restored by Craft classics to a “Road Race” engine. (1078cc which was way over £7000) including: Cooper crankshaft & 1275 cylinder head (MED RS camshaft) High compression pistons (Omega forged pistons) X-pin differential Forged con rods Lightweight flywheel assembly Hyper flow water pump & oil pump, Aluminium due core radiator , ceramic coated exhaust manifold by Zirotec. Twin 1.1/2 inch SU carbs. (Was dyno’d at 78hp @ 6000rpm, but would go more up to 7000rpm. Dyno print off with car) The car comes with x3 sets of wheels: X5 Original D1 Dunlops (refurbished & diamond cut) X5 Force racing light weight racing wheels (New in 2017) X5 Original Cooper S Steel wheels (Refurbished inc Silver) The Interior is flawless. Completely new from Newton Uk. Including 70’s bucket seats. Motolita suede steering wheel. Classic disgin blue tooth stereo. Original subframes which have been blasted & dipped, powder coated black, all poly bushes Cooper S hubs/front discs (servo) rear vented drums. The exterior is finished in OEW with a high gloss black roof (My choice) X2 bonnets. 1 is Louverd for summer driving. The body was completely stripped, sand blasted and acid dipped. All panels which needed to be replaced were with heritage panels, painted on a jig, stainless bumpers & grill fitted. This really is an excellent little mini. I have done roughly 3500klm in her which includes a 1600klm French rally which I did in July 2017. She cruises at 60mph and can push quite comfortably up to 90mph (100mph on the dyno). Has a lovely exhaust note and noise from the twin carburetors. Car is located in Spain and IS LHD. Viewing welcome. Delivery can be worked into the sale and will be done by me personally.
