13s, body kits and neons will be back again!

You’ll be hacking those heritage wings to fit 13s, ditching the NOS bottle for a mahoosive subwoofer and adding a big slab fronted bodykit!

This build is absolutely brilliant. I know of a very sad Clubbie Estate that desperately needs saving. Reading this makes me want to do it even more! Loving the Inno doorpockets (surprise surprise). Keep up the good work.

It's an original Dutch car from 1972. I know the owner very well (he did all the body work on my Inno) he inherited the car and planned to make it run again so parked it outside his workshop. About 10 years ago.

 

Since then, what should have been a simple engine rebuild (IIRC the idler bearing had gone and chewed out the transfercase) and general tidy has become a full on resto. The fake wood panelling (like yours had) has all but disappeared. From memory it needs new sills, rear doors, doorskins a-panels, roof (!), scuttle corners have gone as well (find me an old mini where they haven't), and the sliding rear window guides are all full of moss so they will be in quite a state. 

 

He tried selling it at a show last year and was asking just shy of 4.5 grand. I think most people smiled politely and walked away laughing.

Mine has 12” wheels now but I want to go to 10” too, these look great.

But first I have to change my brakes, 10” won’t fit over 4-pot calipers.

Are those arches specific for the Estate? I mean the rear ones,  fronts will be the same as a saloon.

 

cheers

The arches are for the saloon , I cut/ trimmed them a little to fit lines of estate
