Well, I have been told by the guy I bought it off that it is a 1975 mini clubman with a 1100 motor and the paint code is "hairy lime" hence my "handle".It is a "project" car for me and my family, and we hope to put it on club rego.

Now we're back in the UK I'm giving her a bit of TLC to get her up to scratch (engine swap and body work like new sills and floor cross member etc).
