Pre 65 Mk 1 Aussie Mini.

After many years of hard work I have finally completed it to a point that I can use it.

The specs are.

1312 cc
Side draft Webber
¾ race cam
Copper S disc breaks.
Fibreglass Bonnet, Boot and flares (all made be me)
Full Roll cage
De seamed and de bumpered.
Full bare metal paint job.
Adjustable suspension.

I have done all the work myself, with the expectation of the Roll Cage and the adjustable suspension.

It's not road registered. as I don't have enough pocket money. I will need a new windscreen and harness. In the mean time I will tow it to events.

It's built as an all purpose club event race car. I want to do the Domain hill climb and one day Targa, but that costs lots of money.

Future plans.
Install a data logger to start getting some logs.
I have a hot head that should really make it breath.
Install a free-ems wasted spark system.
Drive the wheels off it. :lol:

Distant future plans.
Fibreglass glass doors
Maybe EFI

Ultimate goal.
VTEC motor

If you want to keep the 5-port head and add EFI, you may want to have a look at the turbominis.co.uk forum. There's a lot of discussions on what is needed to make it work and why.

And, encourage Jean to help make sure FreeEMS supports enough functionality to do just that, as Jean is THE man when it comes to A series and siamese port injection :-)

Fred.

PS, Jean, I need to make a thread with your name in it! See hw section soon.

This is a before photo. As you can see I have done a bit of work on it.

The car had been rolled before I got it and they put a canvas top on it to cover the bad repair job.

Sounds good :-) Needs some wasted spark ignition, though ;-)
