Have you got any idea what their reasoning for moving the bottom to the hatch up on the latter iterations was?

The all aluminium hatch is a lovely piece of work but I’ve always thought that shut line across the centre of the rear lights looked rather unfortunate.


They went into the roof to get more headheight when the door was open, so to get the strength back into the rear of the car they had to raise the bottom.

HAM is a mk1 W&P that a private person decided to fit a copy of the fibreglass HB

The B&W photo is my 64 Hooper that Anita Harris got a std steel HB fitted by Radford in 1966

BGJ is the 64-67 Radford demo car that got the full Radford Works in 67

The Blue and Silver Radford 67 Ali HB is my car

SMU is Steve Berkinshaws 67 Ali Radford HB

Yes it best to leave it there before they all fall asleep in front of there PC’s :lol:

All these bespoked cars just evolve, much like the Works rally and Race minis, the reason for the evolution is the only difference!
