1966 Austin Mini Review

66 Mini Cooper S Review — Bought this car from a little old lady, for real. The car came without the engine in it. So I built a full 1275, with Aluminum head, hot cam, high compression pistons, high lift rockers, and twin carbs. Upgraded to late model rod change gearbox with tall differential. Also has spax shocks with adj. high lows, and 4 piston front brakes. Interior is done in custom tweed, and has original 1970 Corbeau racing seats. Great classic car love it.

Pros: Color

Cons: Cooling system design

Mini Clubman 1275 Gt By Jonas

Performance: It is surely fun to drive, the handling is similar to a go-kart. 59 bhp might not be a lot, but remember that this car weighs only about 600 kg! Build quality: If the car is well looked ... Read More
