THE MODEL
  • The original Mini was produced from 1959-2000, with a variety of engines and body types along the way.
  • The Mk III Mini, produced between 1969-1967, featured a number of mechanical and design improvements over its predecessor, including a new winding window mechanism and internally hung doors.
  • The Mk III Mini, of which ours is one, was produced between 1969-1976. As with most Mini’s there weren’t any huge changes, however sliding windows had been replaced with winding ones, and the door hinges had gone from externally hung, to internally hung.
  • The Mk III’s engine was the popular 998cc inline-4 unit with a single SU carburettor, producing 39bhp in standard factory tune.
  • Drive was delivered through a 4-speed manual transmission, and stopping was achieved by drum brakes all-round, surrounded by 10″ wheels.
THIS CAR
  • This particular car began its life in Ireland, and was purchased by its current UK owner in the spring of 2016.
  • Upon purchasing the car, the Mini was brought over and officially registered in the UK, with a plan to overhaul the car into a fully rally prepared machine.
  • The original shell was replaced with a Cooper S shell, and like wise with the engine, which was replaced with a 1275cc A-Plus unit.
  • The engine and gearbox were completely stripped and rebuilt by Maulden Garage.
  • Other adaptations and modifications include:
    • FIA approved Battery
    • FIA Master Cut Off Switch
    • Roll Cage
    • Mechanical Fire Extinguisher System
    • Brantz International Pro 2
    • Spot Lights
    • Sump Guard
    • Please see vehicle documents for full listing of works/modifications..
  • The result of the current owner’s project is an incredibly well sorted Mini Cooper S Replica, having had great success on the Historic Rally circuit, finishing 2nd in class at both the Three Castles and The Hero challenge in March 2020.
  • It’s also been entered into many other Hero events and is a well known car within the rally community.
