Hi, I've been a mini forum member since circa 2017 and have finally sourced a Mini 1275 GT. I stumbled across the British Heritage Ltd demo car and it's great to be back in a GT driving seat after over a 30 year gap.

Welcome to the forum...would love to see the GT. Well jealous...was my very first mini way back when. It'd had at least 1000 previous owners and was a complete rot box when I bought it aged somewhere between 18-22yrs. It had a strong engine and loved the country lanes where I lived at the time...wish I'd have had the money to restore it, but nobody did that back in the 80's/90's...it got you about until it failed massively on the MOT and then you'd just get something else! Sadly I know the next owner of the one I owned scrapped it and kept all the good bits. And now a really good one is good for 30k!

I'll definitely post some pics. I'ts not long out of the paint shop as some lacquer was peeling off so i'ts missing it stripes. When it was first rebuilt in 2006 it appeared in a magazine feature. Google mini 1275GT Autoexpress. I myself have been looking for my old 1275GT for about five years (reg LMC 327 W) to no avail. Last taxed in 1991 but interestingly a new log book was issued in 1995, so either still in a lockup or was used for Autograss racing or something.

Yes that's the one, those photos were taken in 2006 (a mini lifetime ago) but BH ltd have maintained it well. Okay it's not 100% original spec but it is however the spec I would have loved to have back in 1984 when I last owned a GT. I personally think 30K for a totally original GT is a bit excessive, that's boarding on MK3 S money.
