Classic Mini 1380 "Stinger"
Oyster Cars are delighted to offer this very rare opportunity to purchase a classic 1966 Morris Mini rebuilt and upgraded with many Cooper S and modern contemporary components. The car was specifically built to blend the core elements of a classic 1960s Mini with the performance and reliability of a ‘fast road’ specification including modern technologically advanced upgrades. This has in turn created a unique car that is emotive, fast and fun to drive, reliable and capable of longer journeys in relative comfort. The core bodywork, which is very solid all round including new polybushed subframes, is that of a 1966 Morris Mini featuring the classic external hinges and sliding windows but upgraded to include a larger heated rear window and also a heated front windscreen. The car features Cooper S twin fuel tanks and a solid state Facet pump feeding fuel to the large SU carburettor for the 1380 cc engine. The engine has been rebuilt using Swiftune components featuring forged pistons, swift tune racing cam, new shells and bearings. All the receipts are present and available to view. The gearbox has a quick shift change and a new clutch has been fitted and the steering has a quick rack fitted. The car features Hi Lo fully adjustable shocks all round, genuine 10 inch genuine Minilite alloy wheels and correct Dunlop SP Sport R7 tyres. The interior is as smart and unique as the exterior featuring Connolly leather part trimmed Porsche seats, Cooper S dashboard and a hi tech but classic looking stereo system. The car drives exceptionally well with all the zip and handling that only a classic Mini can offer. Potential buyers are welcomed and encouraged to view the car on one of our four poster ramps.
