This genuine MK3 Mini has just been subject to a full restoration including a bare metal respray in Sherwood Green with an Old English White roof. The Body has been de-seamed apart from the roof drip rail. Wide arches have been fitted to account for the Mamda 6" x 10" split spoke polished alloy wheels. A brand new Stage 3 1400cc engine has been fitted (full spec below) along with uprated brakes, suspension and a Jack Knight Straight Cut 5 Speed Gearbox making this Mini a proper pocket rocket.
We have just finished a run in on the engine. The car (and new engine) have now covered just over 1,000 miles since the restoration and engine build. It is in immaculate condition throughout and truly flies! This MK3 will never cease to put a smile on your face whenever you are behind the wheel. A tasteful restomod and appreciating classic.
