Probably around 1974/5. When my folks were in a local motor club I can recall stuff just like this.

Old 1100's were engine donors. :lol:

The red/white car might be a works car. The orange Mini is 1971 registered but external hinges so probably built from a new old stock shell and registered as 'built from parts'.
