1972 Mini, FIA Appendix K 1275 GT

Potential Velocity Invitational "Mini vs. Mustang Challenge" winner

$65,000

History

This Mini GT was freshly built to FIA standards in 2020. It is modeled on the famous British Saloon Car Championship winning Longman Engineering Mini 1275GT.

Since being imported from Belgium in 2021, the car has appeared in two Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunions, two Velocity Invitational events, and numerous CSRG races where it has consistently finished at the front.

Description

New, zero-time, Huffaker 1275 race engine with the correct, FIA-approved, twin Weber carburetor setup. The 1275 is mated to a one year old Swiftune dog box gearbox.

The Mini is currently in excellent overall condition, including the suspension, brakes, and safety equipment. Every component is either nearly new or rebuilt. Huffaker Motorsports has race-prepared and maintained the Mini for its entire time in the U.S.   

The Mini comes with two additional sets of wheels. It will come with a log book, and considerable documentation. 

If you want a real shot at winning the Velocity Invitational Mini vs. Mustang Challenge, racing a professionally built FIA Appendix K 1275 GT Mini, race prepared by multiple time SCCA National Championship winning Mini Cooper racers, Huffaker Motorsports, seems like a smart choice. You can beat the Mustangs with less cubic inches, less weight, lesser tires, and way more fun. 

James Hunt started in Minis, and he turned out to be a pretty fair driver. He also knew a good time when he saw one. Maybe we should all channel our inner James and experience that “Mini Magic.”
