These five Austin Minis depict various stages of restoration, all carried out by Huddersfield Spares.
At the top of the picture is a restored Mini Clubman shell on a space frame, powered by a Suzuki Hayabusa motorbike engine, with an added turbo. The Hayabusa was the world’s fastest production motorbike in 2000, capable of 198mph. When the interior is fitted, it will be used for track days.
The middle row comprises a Mini van on the left, one of the three identical company cars Huddersfield Spares have restored. On the right is a late model Mini with a standard engine, fitted with a roll cage, arches and alloys.
The bottom row depicts a standard Mini 1000 on the right, while on the left is what one day will be a rather special Mini Cooper. Powered by an engine which was built by legendary Mini tuner and race driver Richard Longman, it’s currently being restored and once complete will be used as a show car.
