This is a Mini Cooper with a Tudor Webasto Sunroof, and has been fully restored as a special project for NVR (Nottingham Vehicle Restorations Ltd) completed over a period of nine months and has only had one former family owner.

This mini has been completely restored to its original condition, with a few additional extras, using a variety of genuine heritage mini panels and parts.

Before any work could commence, the engine, doors, bonnet, bumpers, spats, wheels and sub-frames were removed just leaving the bare shell.

Exterior

The shell was then stripped down to bare metal, all rust spots removed and new panels welded on. The rear sub-frame was removed and a new one fitted, this was then sand blasted together with the front sub-frame and then powder coated.

Various new parts were fitted prior to repainting:-

2 New front wings
New front panel
2 A panels
Outer sills
1 Door skins
1 Rear valance
2 Front section inner wings
1 Scuttle panel
New bonnet
New boot lid
New windscreen with green top tint
New Mini Cooper badges, decors and coach lines.

The shell has been lead filled where necessary, etch primed, primed and finally painted to its original (British Racing Green) colour and finished in a low bake oven.

All the sub-frames were rebuilt using poly bushes plus engine mountings, new track rod ends, ball joints and front and rear flexi hoses together with new shock absorbers all round.

The wheels were shot blasted and powder coated silver and then new tyres fitted. New chrome valves have been fitted with mini cooper dust caps and genuine mini cooper wheel centres along with a full set of wheel nuts.

Engine

Following the removal of the engine, it was stripped, cleaned, painted and put back together with a variety of new parts which included:-

Gaskets and seals.

New speedo cable.
The engine bay has been fitted out with a lot of stainless steel parts as well as a new radiator, water pump, distributor coil, plugs and leads.
