In 1965 I saw a Mini at Mallory Park that had an alloy 3.5 litre Buick V-8 in the BACK, driving the FRONT wheels. 

 

I'd never have believed that description from anyone if I had not stood there and looked at the car.

 

Does anyone know the history of that car?

Here are some recently discovered home movies by the late Harry Ratcliffe, including footage of the BRT Developments Cooper Buick V8 Mini at Oulton Park:-
