They might be scum.... but at least they were hard working scum back then.

Nowadays they just slap a tax exempt vin plate on a later car (& buyers don't bother to check it out if it's legitimately entitled to tax exemption).

that is one hell of a lot of work. credit to them for going that far. that is dedication!

 

I would rather drive that than some of the badly "restored" junk I have seen over the years.

How much was a new Mini in 1971? They weren't much more than £590 anyway was they?

Actually seems quite a lot! About £11.5k in today's money.

 

I thought Mini's were cheap back then?
