This was my 'dream' Mini in the 1960's, as seen in my older brothers copies of CCC magazine......and it still is! 8-)

That's a Motolux dash, I had a NOS one a few years ago which I sold to ABS who made new ones from it.

Would an old Mini enthusiast be allowed to make comment? I think Mini Sprints are horrendous, honesty must prevail . :D

Some Sprints are a little 'challenged' in the looks department, it takes an artists hand to make one well proportioned, if you have to look twice to see its been cut it's a good one

I think it's fair to say this was not one of the more successful ones.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the squarer lights. Some look OK with them, but on this one they look a bit ill fitting?

I totally agree. My first mini was GOY764D.

Round headlights look way nicer but you get what you get and I

still had a lot of fun and learned alot.

Absolutely spot on, although I was never a fan of the rectangular headlights I think they spoil the front of the car.
