We start with the bodyshell as this sets the template for all future decisions. We recommend a new body shell from British Motor Heritage, a Mk1 if you want that very early 60’s look or a later mark 2/3. The square fronted Clubman is becoming very popular and creates a distinctive look. If you prefer we can restore your donor cars bodyshell if it has the correct period style.
Once the body shell is ready it heads straight to paint for your choice of colour. Two tone for the Cooper look or a modern colour scheme for a mini seeking to stand out from the crowd.
Whilst the shell is away, we build up two subframes with all new suspension and brakes. The engine is stripped, machined and rebuilt to your chosen specification.
When the body is returned it is attached to the subframes to make it mobile. A new interior is fitted including carpets, roof lining, trim fittings choice of dash or binnacle, clocks and dials. Seats, again your choice, original 60’s style, stylish buckets or race style. Then a final fit of all the little things from windscreen wipers to number plates.
The car is then MOT’d and tested for 200 miles and any faults identified and rectified.
