1989 Austin Mini

86500 miles

Very large history and receipts file lots of money spent. Uprated and improved in almost every way from the original Austin Mini City E (full list of modifications below). This car is a thrill to drive and has carbon fibre bodywork that costs £3k new and is always admired.

Drives extremely well with all-round adjustable suspension, disc front brakes with servo, and 165/70 R10 semi-slick tyres, all uprated and in great condition. Enlarged, tuned and developed engine pulls strong with plenty of torque and starts every time with the Megajolt electronic ignition (complete with computer programmability for timing and power curve).
Lighter, stronger (and never going to rust) bodywork with full genuine carbon fibre flip front end, bootlid, and front and rear wheel arches.
Structurally solid and rust free with only minor bodywork imperfections as expected with a mini this age.. If you have owned classic minis before, this is even more of an experience to drive with the noise from the straight cut gears and the seemingly limitless grip. If you have not, do not expect refinement but do expect fun at legal speeds!


Modifications (unlikely to be exhaustive) and features are as follows:

Engine/Gearbox:
998cc A-series block, bored out to give 1062cc (recorded with DVLA)
12G940 standard head from 1275cc A-series
Morspeed PH3 cam
Single HS4 SU carburettor with Minispeed water-heated alloy inlet manifold
Megajolt electronic ignition with Ford EDIS coil pack
4-speed straight cut gearbox
Minispares red silicone coolant hoses
LCB exhaust manifold
Maniflow centre exit exhaust
Facet electronic fuel pump
Spare custom head gasket and coil pack

Bodywork:
Flame Red main paintwork with black roof
Carbon Weezel exposed weave carbon fibre flip front, Miglia arches, and bootlid
Front flips forward to give already great access, but hinges and connectors also allow it to be completely removed in two minutes and it's light enough to be lifted off by one person!
Racetech F2 mirrors
Rear bumper to go back on if preferred
Stormforce outdoor cover included

Wheels/Tyres:
6x10" ultralite wheels, polished deep-dish rims with anthracite centres
Yokohama Advan A032R semi-slick, soft compund 165/70 tyres

Suspension/Brakes:
Mk1 Fiesta front disc conversion, servo assisted
All-round Protech billet steel dampers, 12 point adjustable
Hi-Lo adjustable trumpets

Interior:
Corbeau Forza Sport 2k bucket seats
OMP WRC steering wheel
KAD Quickshift
Sequential shift lights run from Megajolt
6-gauge cluster with: tachometer, vacuum, oil pressure, water temp, voltmeter, ammeter
Alloy door furniture
Rear seat removed
Adjustable seating position (current driver 6' 10")
