1978 Flame Red mini

Ready for a new owner this freshly restored Classic Mini by Steveston Motor Co, classic mini specialists, is for sale and needs nothing more than a new home. 

Stripped to a bare shell, this car was fully gone through by us and had all rusty or damaged panels removed and repaired with new OEM parts. The car was then painted in a BMC “Flame red” body and a Porsche “Light Ivory” white roof. 

The engine is a 1310cc unit built by 7ent. It has an aluminum cylinder head, sports cam, high lift roller rockers, and is running on a tuned and tested Weber 32/36 carb and electronic ignition. It has a new stainless twin tip and exhaust and sounds as good as it goes.

The wheels are SMCO EJB wheels in a 10x5.25” sizing with brand new Yokohama A008 tires. The wheels are overtop of new Cooper S disk brakes, stainless lines, and new master cylinders. The suspension sports fully adjustable arms, new bushings, and Bilstein Cones with HiLow adjustable trumpets. 

The interior is classically styled with MK2 Dash and gauges, new door cards, carpets, and the full SMCO interior parts catalog. The seats are MPI late mini seats which offer the best form and function. 

The lighting includes a full SMCO LED lighting package, with MK2 tail lamps and Lucas p700 headlights. 

The car has far too many parts to list, it is truly sorted and ready to go. One of the cleanest minis you will find and perfect for someone to add to their collection, daily drive, or a blank canvas to add their personal touches to.
