Description 1978 Austin Morris Classic Mini

Here we have my 1978 Austin Mini 1000 which I have owned for
18 years. It was my first car and I used it as my daily driver for 10+ years
until I took it off the road and put it into storage.
A couple of years ago I decided it was time to get it back
on the road and what started as a few repairs to get it roadworthy turned into
a major rebuild. The floors, sills and sub-frame panels were rotten so required
replacement, as well as the rear passenger pockets, rear valence and door
skins. The boot floor and rear arches had been replaced around 2000/2001 and
were still in good condition so were retained. The boot lid and front end are fibreglass
versions so are lighter and will never suffer from corrosion.
Engine is a 1275 metro unit with unleaded stage 4 ported
& polished head, Lightened flywheel with pre-engaged starter motor, 1 ¾” SU
carb with K&N filter, Maniflow LCB and RC40 exhaust system.
Mechanically any part that needed replacing I sourced either
a top quality or strengthened or lightened race/rally substitutes to go in
their place. New fuel pipes, silicone coolant and vacuum hoses plus new brake and
power lines are run inside car (I was prepping car for rallying use), battery
isolation switch and push button start.
Interior has matched door cards, classic bucket seats and
rear seat covers all in black with red piping. Door handles and window winders
replaced with alloy race style versions along with an alloy gear knob. New
perspex sun visors and Bluetooth DAB stereo into 6x9 rear mounted speakers.
Finished in Pageant Blue/Old English white roof and Black
Group 2 arches with chrome edging.
