It's been a long time since I've posted on this forum and a lot has changed since I was last here. Ever since I sold my Clubman in 2010 I've wanted another Mini, but circumstances and many many other cars have distracted me. Recently though I've been in a position to look at Mini's again. To cut a very long story short I have acquired a 1979 Clubman Estate that is soon to be the recipient of a C16SE engine. Haven't got started on it yet due to having a few other projects to sort out first, but hopefully the next few weeks will see it begin. Here's the car anyway, as purchased:
It's already got a 1275 engine, 7.5" discs and a few other nice features. My plan is to keep it as it looks on the outside but make it nice under the bonnet and nice inside. Probably some upgraded seats and basically some improvements and refinements using the lessons learnt on the purple Mini.
I'll update this thread as and when I have some progress to report
