In the fall of 2022, we finally got going on this project, destined to be an FIA Appendix K race car!
In 2005 we purchased this Mini from Allan Barry and Bart Smith in California as a bare shell. It was originally a 1967 Austin Cooper S, delivered to German market, Old English White/Black. Completed in the spring of 2023, the inaugural race will be Indy in June with SVRA.
The concept is a tribute livery to the 1965 – 1971 color scheme of the genuine “129 LNP” in the Arden colours, metallic blue with a silver roof.
Ultimately we hope to send the car to Swiftune and race it in England, but meanwhile it will be raced here in North America and thus has both FIA Appendix K and C-Sedan configurations.
