Introduced in October 1969, the Mini Clubman was penned by ex-Ford product planner and stylist Roy Haynes. Intended as a replacement for the Mini-derived Wolseley Hornet and Riley Elf, the newcomer boasted better frontal crash protection and improved under-bonnet access and was powered by a 998cc or 1098cc four-cylinder A-series engine. This is a 1971 Leyland Mini Clubman with a 1275 GT evocation appearance. Finished in White with a Black roof, this little pocket rocket has been built to evoke the famous Clubman Mini which had pretentions to be a sports car; what the Cooper was to the Mini, the Mini 1275 GT was to the Clubman iteration of the people's car. As the ads said, 'It looks like it goes, it goes like it looks'. Subject to a large amount of expense in 2018 this evocation wears 10 inch Minlitite-style alloy wheels which lay down the performance from the twin carburettored engine plus sports manifold. In order to shout about the potential extra tarmac ability, the car wears 'Mini 1275 GT' lower panel side decals and rear boot badge plus the correct Red 'GT' badge on the radiator grille standing proud upfront. Inside, and the correct Black vinyl seats with biscuit pattern are present. This Clubman 1275 GT evocation is offered with an extensive and impressive record of parts purchased and invoices for work completed.
