This Leyland Mini 1275 was built from a new bodyshell in 2001 when the engine and gearbox were completely rebuilt as well. Parts fitted include Mini Sport stage 3 cylinder head, Piper 270 cam, Piper adjustable timing gears, MG Metro inlet manifold, Maniflow LCB, K & N Filter, RC 40 exhaust, lightened flywheel, competition clutch, KAD quick shift gear change, Koni shock absorbers, adjustable suspension, full roll cage, Cooper S brakes, competition pads and discs, bucket seats, head restraints and walnut dash. Recently it has benefitted from an oil and filter change with classic 10w50 oil and has been fitted with a new high power battery. This fast little car is described by the vendor as driving very well. It was registered in March 1978 and, although now MoT-exempt as an historic vehicle, it has an MoT through to August 2024. 

Comes with current V5C, receipts dated 2022 and some past MoTs. The mileage reads 94,280 but the car has apparently only covered 14,000 miles since its rebuild.
