Mini 1275 GT Clubman - 1974 - Simply Stunning

An absolutely stunning Mini 1275 GT, gets so much attention everywhere it goes. The details of the restoration follow, but it has been completed to the highest standard, being only a notch down from concours condition but also very driveable.
The History
• First registered September 1974
• Bought by the previous owner circa 2003 as part of a fleet of Clubman’s
• The car was subjected to an incredibly extensive restoration using the finest quality OEM bits where possible
• After restoration the car was featured in Miniworld magazine
• Both MOT and tax exempt due to historic status although the car will be sold with 12 months MOT for peace of mind
The Interior
• Recommissioned front seats retrimmed in the correct “basket weave” upholstery
• Incredibly original inside
• Original gauges

It is hard not to be full of admiration for the quality of work performed by the previous owner throughout the restoration and the interior is no exception. With the car having seen very limited use since its restoration, the interior seating presents in a great clean condition, with very little, if anything to be seen in the way of wear. The black door panels are well appointed with the correct factory switchgear and embellishments.

The front of the cabin retains the original classic 1275 GT gauge set and control panel, all of an impeccable condition, as is the roof lining.
The Exterior
• Stunning Lagoon blue metallic paintwork
• Rare factory 12” wheels
• Presents in outstanding aesthetic condition

An undeniable showpiece the car was stripped down to its bare shell which was subsequently sandblasted and any necessary bodywork and welding was performed to solidify the Mini before the all-important paint.

Lagoon blue metallic was chosen for the 1275 and records show that this was a colour readily available on the factory colour charts for the GT, however they are simply not seen in this colour, which makes this one all the more special and really helps it to stand out.

The paintwork is truly of a great standard and presents as such, with a deep and rich shine.

The trim, brightwork and bumpers, including the iconic front grille, are all in excellent condition and work well to compliment the car’s brilliant blue paint scheme.

1974 saw a changeover when it came to wheels for the 1275 GT, whereby the wheel size changed from 10” to 12”, and as such this car sits on the 12” wheels with new tyres. A fifth spare wheel can be found located in the rear storage section.
The Mechanics
• Excellent mildly tuned 1293 engine
• Has undergone extensive mechanical restoration
• Incredibly clean underside
• Great performer

An interesting talking point on any 1275 GT is always going to be the mechanical underpinnings, and this particular car is no stranger to that notion.

Under the bonnet we find an absolute gem, as we have a mildly tuned 1293 with a big-valve head, ported with bigger valves by Mini Speed. It has an alloy manifold and an LCB, built up by the previous owner, along with almost every component from the running gear which has been stripped, rebuilt or replaced with factory parts.

The original subframes were also removed and repainted to an impeccable standard of the highest quality restoration.

On the road, YRT 14N drives wonderfully and thanks to some choice engine upgrades, packs a bit more punch than the average GT!
Having covered just a handful of miles since its restoration, this Mini really needs nothing to be enjoyed.

Brilliant and unique paintwork, a clean interior and outstanding mechanical underpinnings, one struggles to think of what else could be asked of this car.

Classic Minis are seldom offered for sale in this high quality, and thus YRT 14N introduces a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase an exquisite example of a British icon. The big question is, where would you find another quite like it?
