I’ve always liked the Clubman-style 1275GT and I was lucky (?) enough to come across this one on ebay, close to where I live with the option of having it delivered by the seller.
So, after a winning bid, the car was delivered in November 2011. It didn’t look too bad to start with but I ended up replacing/repairing just about every panel on the body. I also had to replace or refurbish all of the suspension components as well as repair the gearbox and rebuild the engine.
Below is a list of articles describing how I went about getting the Mini back to roadworthy condition – which was my first attempt at a full nut & bolt restoration.
Later on, the restoration turned into a resto-mod, as I decided to replace the old A-Series engine with something a bit more modern.
