Nutts Performance Classics are delighted to offer this exceptional condition Tartan Red 1275 Austin Mini that was subject to a full rebuild in 2012 and has just been featured in ‘Mini Mag’. No expense was spared with this car, pretty much everything is new or refurbished. On careful inspection of the photo’s you will not find any rot or cover up repairs, this is the most solid Mini shell i have seen in a long time.
The 1275 engine has just been fully rebuilt by us and set up on our rolling road, please find us on Facebook under ‘Nutts Performance Classics’ for evidence of the build and rolling road. Photos of the engine stripped can be provided on request.
A full list parts added during the restoration includes;
New Cooper S brakes all round with braided hoses
New copper brake lines front to back
Cooper S dash
New fuel lines, fuel pump and filter
New 10″ wheels with new Yokohama tyres all round
New red carpet
New period look bucket seats
Moto-Lita steering wheel
New MK1 grill
MK2 rear lights
Green tinted glass
New Cooper S look 2nd fuel cap
Lucas reverse light
New RC40 full stainless exhaust
New Mini 7 competition/fast road Protech shocks (set to soft)
New KAD adjustable/negative camber brackets front and rear
New hi lo’s all round (lowered 20mm from standard)
Rare Mini 7 front badge
The private registration ‘FYA 69J’ further adds the character of the car and is included in the sale.
Altogether if you add up the cost of the restoration and modifications you would never build this car for the advertised price. It looks, handles and sounds fantastic on the road and really needs to be seen to be appreciated, everyone who has called past the garage seems to fall in love with it!. Any trial or inspection is welcome. We are based in a small village called Penperlleni just outside Usk, South Wales within easy access of the M4 motorway.
If you have any further questions or require any more close up photo’s please get in touch.
