Purchased 28th June 1960, for £ 562.19.10, and after allowing for the part exchanged A40 Farina,
One of the very early Minis, and wonderful fun. It was rallied, hillclimbed and generally abused, but always came up smiling.
It was treated to a Downton cylinder head, increasing the already awesome power from 32 to 40 bhp. In this form it had a more than adequate performance, 8 bhp may not sound much but it represented a 25% increase.
Owned from 28th June 1960 to 12th September 1961.
