Background of the car
I acquired Winston around 2 years ago now just before my 17th birthday and before i could drive.
He is a de-seamed flip front, 1972 mini with a new but very poor and thin paint job. When I got him, he was stripped out with a cage, buckets and ready for rallying. the engine was a 1275 with stage 1 kit and a very nice head that was ported and flowed with bronzed guides and double valve springs but std sized valves. It was a bespoke head done by a local garage and would be classed as stage 3/4 depending on the company and if the valves were changed.
The whole car had been rebuild and the back end was not restored like the rest of the car. Sadly due to insurance reasons i could not keep the buckets, harnesses and cage. And insted I decided to turn it back to a road going car.
