Interesting - do you know which S&A dealership he worked at...? I think all of the Sprints they sold (about fifty is most people's best guess) were done at London dealerships.

Not sure, I know he was around the Knightsbridge/West London area. I'll ask him when I see him next smile

What’s going on with these two? Are the moulded flared arches just blended grp, steel or are they a non UK shell like a Mini cord.




Edited by Cledus Snow on Wednesday 21st August 17:57
Sorry, missed your post completely - they're both proper Mini shells but the arches are made from blended in metal, it was very common in the late '60s and '70s but often bodged at home rather than done professionally. Some of them used these over the counter arches from Cosmic and blended them in to the bodywork...



More customised Minis... Radfords etc...

I love this thread, every time it is updated I have a hankering for some A series powered goodness

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Colin - but I was hoping someone else might post some stuff too (so I can nick a few ideas biggrin), there must be a few PH'ers out there who've modified their Minis at some point, I'd love to see some of them wink

Brilliant images, what a lovely selection.

I just got a 1970 saloon for my 50th birthday, 31 years after I sold my last one!

Thanks. Sounds interesting... a late Mk2 or an early Mk3...? Standard / modified / customised...? Nice way to treat yourself anyway, would love to see some photos of it wink

Spotted this nicely backdated '80s Mini at Stanford Hall last September, always a good local show this one....
