This is the 1071 Radford the interior came from. Shame it was de-Radfordised. Looked like a cracking car.


When I released what I had, I made a lot of enquires to MK1 Gurus , through the Mini Cooper Register, I think it was too early for the forum ? , I cant remember, and no one had any interest in the car, I only paid 2 grand for it, 20 ish years ago mind, it laid in my garage for ages as a shell, with all the bits it came with, Firstly John Kelly, then a well know Scottish contingent, and a few other people I knew well even made me a visit, and at the time, the little bit extra I was offered didn't make it worth while selling it as the shell was so good for the basis for a Road Rally car, and I really didn't have any interest in it being a Radford or even a Road Car.

I did put the car back to its original state in the end, sold all the bits, as you know they were all in a poor state, unfortunately I never got to enjoy the car due to a messy divorce and finished it and sold it to get some funds in 2010 ish for around 12K

I suppose if it was the original shell as it sounds Murph it could always be re-Radfordised by the current owner! There's loads of stuff I did with Minis I'd never do now with the benefit of hindsight! :?

I have no doubt it was the original shell and 1071 unit, plenty of verification there, so yes who ever has the car now could turn it back to it’s Radford existence, it did get a little split up mind ! and the Radford bits did help in completing other famous cars .

It’s well documented where the seats and dash went, not sure about the doors, what a piece of work they were, all sorts of materials, quite amazing really.

I have owned 2 other “S” s, both owners have contacted me recently for info on the cars funnily enough, be nice to have a craic with the current owner of 8049SR, if anyone knows of them

The Radford binnacle dashboard, loom and sunvisors went to a guy in Northern France if I remember rightly.

Beauty! just needs a set of hubcaps, the wheels are too new! There was a set on Ebay a while back.


Yes shame that Selllers one hasn't got its wheel trims, looks like it had two or three different types over the years. Cosmics don't suit it IMO.
