When you get in a Mini and drive one, what is it that makes you want to just ‘pin it’?
This one is no exception. It’s just a blast to drive and just puts a huge smile on your dial. No surprise we ended up taking the long way home on our test drive.
This 76 Clubman is a customer’s car and has been lovingly pampered by her. It’s well sorted and the 998cc engine is in good health with enough power coming from its twin SU’s. The brakes and gearbox are on point and those wide wheels ensure the handling is bonkers fun.
The paint is good and the red suits the car well. The only area of note is some small surface bubbles of rust on the lower part of the boot lid. This could be easily treated though. The underside of the car is really solid and clean.
The interior has had a lot of attention with new seat upholstery, carpets and roof lining too. Matching the 1000cc engine is a 1000W sub-woofer in the boot and decent sound system to round out the fun.
The car is serviced and on the button.
At $19,995 it’s a lot of fun for not a lot of money.
