I just saw that & had a laugh too. £200 is OTT for any Speedwell badge, let alone one with a pin missing!

Do these innocenti minis come with an S engine as claimed in this auction or is it a standard A series?

Needs a bit of welding... could be a nice little project!

No they didn't, at least I have seen several of theses and they have all been an 11 stud, 1300GT style solid block with conrods with the little beam on them. I suspect the seller is either a typical ebay chancer or has been speaking to someone who said "my mate had a mk111 S that came from the factory with a solid block" etc etc.

Solid wall block 1275, what I'd call a MG1300 lump.
But with a single HS6 on a alloy manifold only seen on these.
Short 3-1 exhaust manifold, something like the pressed steel type but bigger diameter.
Seriously doubt the claimed S-brakes, but who knows?!!
Front subframe looks mini, but is special to these.

Yes, used to own one :D much rustier :shock:

There's a copy of a period British road test of a De Tomaso here. The car had 8.4" GT brakes when built and a retuned (different cam timing according to the text) version of the GT engine.
