Great project Oz, as others have said it will be good to see another one saved before they have all rusted away....

What if BL had introduced the Innocenti Mini in the UK?
"In the months following the October 1974 launch of the Innocenti Mini in mainland Europe, BL did talk to Bertone and explore using this car’s body in the UK. The original plan had been to build it on a much larger scale than in Italy, and thereby give the company an opportunity to introduce a stylish supermini just when it needed it most....."

Back from bodyshop for a couple of weeks to test fit a few parts before going to paint.
Subframes in, dummy engine to check carb clearance on bonnet catch and servo fitment on modified pedal box.

Whoa, 30/24 or 32/28 FZD'S?

Will follow this build with great interest 👍

(Shell looked mint already from start compared to the Detomaso Mini I gave away for free not that many years ago)

I have a pair of 30.24 and 32.28 FZDs.
Will try them both on rolling road. See what suits the engine best.
