Please post your experience of restoring it and what all stuffs have been done. I Love this car!!
You are privileged to own the all time favorite - the legendary Cooper Mini.

The wheels look bit huge, but the introduction of new engine would definitely lower the clearance and improve the looks.

Check my profile picture. Its a classic B&W pic of Mini racing.

thanks for the appreciation by all u guys.
i have bought a 1273cc super charged engine and mated gear box. the expected bhp quoted by them is 150.this engine is being made in london and would be ready for shipment by next month end. the only problem is customs just getting everything sorted i just hope it will be cleared. the car is done by KAIZAD. he is the same guy who drives the silver colour fiat with a 1.8l engine in the drags.

dear i have also noted that. forgot about it while clicking the snap. i have ordered for the orignal ones. will replace it then

i stay in bandra. would be taking her out for drives in the evening along carters

Looks beautiful. I just love that blue color tone. The OZ wheels and the Hella's accent the looks of the mini. Nice job. Any plans to custom paint the roof?

Lovely car navs123. I have seen the car being done from scratch at Kaizad's. Actually saw the labour of love (both yours and his) going into the making of this car. Congratulations on a job well done. I guess Kaizad's team deserves a pat on the back. Love the colour combination though if it was for me, Id have chosen one of the factory colours.

@ jacs- I think she is not a Cooper.
Please clear our doubts navs123, as IMHO the cooper came with a dual exhaust in the centre.

Forgiven, but is that a genuine Cooper too?
