This Longbridge-built Mini started out life as a 1989 Mayfair model, but has recently been reborn as a bespoke 1380cc-powered example packed with special features. The restoration was carried out by the Highway Service Automotive Centre of Beeston, Notts. The car was completely disassembled and the bodyshell stripped to bare metal and repainted in Black over White livery. The seats were re-trimmed with White piping and stitching and 1380 sewn into the headrests. The many other related new parts fitted included: windscreen with top tint, roof lining, seat belts, Monte Carlo door panels and walnut dash and door caps, alloy/wood steering wheel and matching gear knob, underlay and carpets, stereo radio/CD with iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, plus speakers on the parcel shelf and secreted behind front air vents. The subframes were stripped, welded as required, powder coated and reassembled with poly bushes. Other new mechanical parts included: competition clutch, master and slave cylinders, brake system, Minilite style wheels and Yokohama tyres, electronic ignition, electric fuel pump, battery, Scorpio alarm and quadruple spotlights. Before re-insertion the 1380cc A-Series engine was refurbished and equipped with a professionally-tuned 45DCOE Weber carburettor. This unique almost as-new Mini comes complete with MOT to August 11th 2016.
