found another 2 at stanford.... !

one was at the concours section. was a blue one, with custom made arches etc ..

EDIT
well the one i THOUGHT was another was'nt, but is the lightweight one .. now looking at the pictures more closing and regocnising the number plate !
so this is not a new one ! lol ...

(((((before edit .... and the other one was white (kinda of a matt finish) more of a rally style, very distiquishable with rad fan in grille ! lol
that one was at the ' gr'8 leicester mini club ' .... before edit)))))

will post some pics of um, but silly me forgot to put me card back in camera before taken it in the mornig so thus didnt work..
so all i have are pictures from my phone .. will add them shortly if not tommrow, along with updating list !! but has made the grand total now 20 !!
(which i know some1 already knows as they were at the show and talked to the blue 'minus1275GT' :lol: ( as it had on its nice stickers !)

Dam it, was going to get this one, but it looks like someone has beat me to it!
I rang the guy and somone offered £1k just for the shell!
The guy only wanted £900 for everything.

If anyone see's any for sale at a good price, let me know.

Thanks

shell is good. No accident damage. Has had wheelarches cut for 13 inch wheels, but can be covered with wheel arches, I had the interior wood panels replaced and the rear inner wheelarch es repaired and strengthened.
The doors were factory altered and are steel, so the tin worm has taken the skins, but can be rebuilt. There is no ID with the body as the plate is missing
Won by vicarage77 for £670

This is a very cut down shell, but discussed in length in essence a minus
which has a full frontend, and back bodykit, with full custom running gear and chassis/frame
named because of this the 'space frame minus'
