Show quality restoration
This stunning Austin Mini Banham Speedster started as an, already desirable, 1967 Austin Mini 850 but has been subject to a nut and bolt restoration which was completed in 2012, and the car has only covered 40 miles since the completion of the restoration. We are informed this transformation was completed by a highly skilled Marine engineer and fabricator, to an exceptional standard using a genuine Banham strengthening parts, professionally installed and seam welded with extra triangular braces added to the A and B pillars and seat belt mounting points along the sills. The restoration included a full blasted shell and new heritage panels where necessary, the panels were de-seamed and lead-filled before being treated to a 2K Ultra Black finish. The bespoke rear deck is held tight but can be removed, it is held in place with stainless steel screws from the rear window.
New subframes, bushes, suspension arms, wheel bearings, brakes including callipers, braided brake lines and servo-assisted brakes have all been fitted and we are informed every nut and bolt has either been chromed, painted or replaced. Sportspack arches were cut and profiled to fit flush against the panels, they sit above new staggered Minilite wheels and tyres with Spax adjustable dampers and Fusion sound package which includes a Sony stereo hidden under the dash. The car has custom door cards, full carpet and RS Turbo Recaro seats retrimmed in leather with green stitching. The 1275cc engine was completely rebuilt with a stainless exhaust and water-cooled aluminium inlet manifold. As you can see, the build was somewhat painstaking and the quality of the finish is worthy of any show. Dry stored ever since the restoration, this unique Mini really needs to be seen in the flesh for it to be appreciated.
