Hi after a bit of info . I have a early clubman the fe number is 125383. The car is registered early 72 and I wondered if this is about correct . Have ordered a heritage certificate and have already been informed that there isn’t much info going to be on it . Many thanks Justin

Hi Justin.

I have a late 72 and no heritage certificate.The reason given was there is a 101 GTs of that year that there is no record of and my no’s fall into that category. Hope that helps.

Merry Christmas Gray.

That is a beauty isn't it 8-) I spotted it yesterday I thought that'll have a lot of people fighting over it ;) It'll sell for more than I want to pay for it I imagine. A lovely project for somebody. A shame to over-restore it perhaps?

That will make fortunes. What a nice example. I will be shamelessly stealing the details from those photos when I put mine together.

I can see that doing the thick end of £20,000.

It's impossible to value.

Years and years ago I bought a 1275GT for my wife, she didnt think it was powerful enough.....so I build bigger engine, 86mm crank, 74,, omega pistons, 649 cam and a 45 weber. She never complained again. Sadly she sold it to my ex brother-in-law for his wife. They got divorced and she then left it unlocked , with the key in the steering lock. Yup, you guessed it. It was stolen. Never to be seen again. What a shame, it was, by far, the quickest mini I ever drove. Hope the engine is in some other mini now.
I hate electric cars !
