Austin Mini – 1430cc Fast Road/Competition



Austin Mini – 1430cc Fast Road/Competition – Great attention to detail, a comprehensive spec and 144bhp at the front wheels, a fabulous package.

With a full restoration having just being completed, this outstanding ‘Fast Road Mini’ with potential for track use, has an impressive specification. Built from a bare 1996 Mini shell, over the last three years, with competition use in mind, the mechanical aspects of the build are comprehensive. The fuel-injected, 1430cc straight-four is fitted with an Arden 8-port race-spec cylinder head, Jenvey throttle bodies, Omega forged pistons – short height, matched steel conrods, an 86mm Billet crankshaft, steel main caps, cross-drilled MED 2 Piper steel cam, lightweight race followers and steel Vernier timing gears, all mated to a full competition 4-speed gearbox and driveshafts.

The stripped shell, refinished in Tartan Red with a Black cap, has been fitted with a full Safety Devices cage, Cobra Monaco Pro-Competition seats with OMP harnesses and a full fire extinguisher system. Recently run on a dyno, the print-out indicates an impressive 144bhp at the wheels at 7000 rpm. With its wide arch appearance rolling on 10’’ MED Engineering alloy wheels, this impressive head turning Mini has huge potential and is offered fresh from the build at a fraction of the build costs.
