The Mini has the S type Veglia gages. S type 8" dual piston disk brakes with cross drilled and grooved ventilated rotors. an S type two core front mounted oil cooler. and S type one piece offset rear brake drums and adjustable rear suspension with rubber cones in the front and blue springs in the rear. which gives up a bit in handling but more than makes it up in the improved ride. The odometer reads 84726k but it was missing the cable. which I custom fitted when I purchased the Mini. I do not believe the odometer was functional and may have been a replacement after the rebuild.

Before the Mini left the UK in 2007 it was tuned and tested prior to shipping to the U. S. by Balmuir Garage in England. They stated it was one of the fastest minis they've seen in a long time. It is said to turn out 126 bhp at the flywheel. It is a true 1977. not a "reshelled" car. This is not just a show car as I have enjoyed driving it often averaging about 1000 miles a year to shows and just fun drives. it is a blast to drive. Any one who raced sport cars in the 60's would be very much at home with it. It also has American Racing alloy rims with Sumitomo 175/50 R13 72H tires. ustom fiberglass wheel flares. and many extras. such as two bonnets. one solid RED and the other RED with white stripes. this bonnet is damaged but is repairable. As I stated the car is driven so it has a few dings in the bumpers. and paint chips. there is no rust evident. The Mini appears to have had a full rebuild very recently as both front and rear sub frames appear almost new also there is no floor nor battery box rust. . Glass overall is decent; but right rear has some scratches. Doors open and shut well. Has standard heater/defroster that works well. and the dash vents are connected. The Mini is in very good condition.

The engine is a 1275cc A+ Metro bored to 1380cc or 84ci. The engine was built by Bill Richards Racing of Kent England. It has a Cooper S crank and S rods. it also has VP 572 competition big end bearings and VP 91120 Competition main bearings. Omega 40X pistons. strengthened center main cap. The cam is a Kent 296 with duplex timing gear. The engine also has lightened cam followers. ported and polished cylinder head with enlarged valves of 31mm inlet; 36. 5 outlet. bronze guides. LCB 50mm exhaust manifold with Sportex 55mm exhaust system with 75mm tail pipe. (Yes it is a bit LOUD - but not quite as noticeable at highway speeds). The transmission is a Bill Richards rebuilt four-speed. four synchro. close-ratio gearbox with center oil pickup. It is connected to the to the front drive wheels with a lightened steel; flywheel and back plate fitted with the gray diaphragm competition clutch through a pinned Metro Turbo differential. The engine is fed with a Weber 45 DCOE carburetor on a swan neck manifold and fired by a complete electronic ignition system. and cooled by a modified four core radiator. and has never overheated. The engine was built around 2000. 2001 and had less that 5000 miles on it at the time of my purchase in August 2009.

The Mini is not modified to a point a novice could not operate it easily. The car is very streetable but hard riding. it corners like it is on rails when it is set up. but the engine hits the 6000 RPM safe redline very quickly in the lower gears. It's a blast!-
