This Example

Description by seller:

Assembled in 1978 as a 1100L Clubman by Leyland, this feisty little car has been restomodded after the ever-popular 'GTS'. The motor has been rebuilt and stroked to a 1275cc and the engine bay tidied up with various coloured bits and bright work done to tie in with the rest of the theme. The custom paintwork inside and out has been styled and airbrushed to the highest standard.

The car has been completely rebuilt including a custom leather interior, great sound system and engine that is still being run in. Both subframes stripped down, sandblasted and powder coated. All bright work has been electro plated with a yellow gold finish. New 14-inch Minilite replica rims, fitted with 185 x 60 continental contact II tyres, centre painted diamond black to match the custom fabricated wheel arches. Adjustable cones fitted to the front suspension. New headlights and clear lens indicators in the front.

Mini GTS disc brakes up front. Callipers refurbished while discs and pads are new.

New window and door rubbers all round, tinted rear and rear side windows. Seats front and rear were repurposed from a new generation Mini Cooper S and recovered in black leather with orange double stitching. Custom fabricated door cards, console and dash fashioned after modern design, covered in black vinyl with orange stitching to match. New black carpets and black headliner. New stainless and leather Moss steering wheel.
