Not being quite what it seems, this Mini convertible is actually a special custom car created by the late Roy Harrodine.
The 1978 Mini was lengthened by 30 cm, stripped of its subframes and fitted with a ladder chassis to accommodate a new driveline comprising a longitudinally mounted Ford engine, gearbox and rear axle. The front wings and a bonnet had to be specially extended to match.
The front suspension is Vauxhall Viva and the rear is Triumph Dolomite. Other components originate from Peugeot, Nissan and even Sherpa van, all chosen to suit.
The spare wheel is mounted on a rear carrier which swings out for access to the boot and the Minilite style wheels are specials, designed to suit the Ford hubs
