1982  MINI  INNOCENTI DE TOMASO 120

This is truly a unique union of British craftsmanship and unique Italian style. This model takes the Mini to the next step in its evolution. Sold extensively in western Europe. but sadly never in North America or Great Britain.   Mechanically all Mini.  but an Italian Mini with panache!    This example was originally imported  from Spain.

 

How De Tomaso improved the Mini:- Hatchback Body by Bertone with practical rear folding seat. Full instruments by Jaeger Italia.  12” wheels to accommodate Cooper disc brakes. Front-mounted rad with electric fan (less engine noise !).

(This is NOT the Innocenti with the 3 cylinder Diahatsu engine nor the Italian-sourced British Leyland Mini body. )

Left hand drive. Original mileage is 94 000 km (58750 miles) Engine is a BLMC 1275cc.  Four speed transmission.  

List of improvements:

Complete engine overhaul

Respray

SU Carb updated from Waxstat needle

New SU fuel pump

New clutch

New Shocks

Front seats reupholstered

Petronix electronic ignition

New clutch slave

New brake master cylinder

New brake cylinders. shoes and flex lines

Rebuilt alternator and starter

Sub-frame sand blasted and coated with POR-15

 

From Wikipedia :   “Innocenti's Mini version was generally nicely equipped and had a better finish than their British brethren. leading to higher sales and a better reputation in many continental European markets (aside from Italy). such as France.  The largest improvement was the addition of a rear hatch. allowing for improved access to the (still tiny) luggage compartment. Coincidentally. the drag resistance was also marginally lower than that of the original Mini. 0. 41 Cd rather than 0. 42.

TECHNICAL:

BLMC front and rear sub-frames;  Wheelbase: 2040 mm;  Ground Clearance: 120 mm;  Fuel Supply: One SU HS6 Carb;  Horsepower: 76  @  3200 rpm;  Tires:  155/70 SR 12;  Fuel Consumption: 5. 9 litres per 100 kilometres;   0 to 60 : 10. 9 sec. ; Top speed: 95 mph.   Always garaged.    Excellent mechanical condition.
