1965 Austin Mini Cooper S 1275cc Mk I - 'Twini'
Lot: 105
An original 1275cc Mk I Austin Mini Cooper S 'Twini' - Targa Florio Evocazione.


Remind me what an auction house means when they use the word original.


Edit:

One of the most original Bertone bodied 5 speed Alfa Romeo 1600 Giulia's available, with a 1750cc period engine upgrade and a restoration in 2005.

I'm not going to read any further down.

Quite. How can it be both original and an 'Evocazione'? - a word that was in common usage in the BMC Competitions Department at Abingdon, I'm sure. I suppose the answer is that it is an original 'Evocazione'.

Is that because of their misplaced use of the apostrophe, Pete, or for reasons more suspicious?

Did a Twini ever compete in the Targa? I remember it in the rallycross and perhaps the autopoint but I thought they found it did not work well on tarmac?
There are lies, dam lies and what auction houses say!

It finished 27th overall, and 5th in class, in the 1963 Targa driven by Sir John Whitmore and Paul Frere

Yes it did finish despite having to drag one of the dead engines around for the most part. Not sure an insurance company would take kindly to the replica, let alone the MOT man ! :lol:

So we see 75 B - 10. But what are (were) the two (?) digits on the right?


Just found a better photo of the plate - the last two letters are EC.

No idea what they mean but they were on the plate when the car was listed for sale in the USA

1972 Ford Escort 1100 L according to HPI might be lacking a bit of 'poke' as I'm sure they used to say in the motor industry  ;)

Hi guys, sorry to revive this old thread but would like to ask if someone took pictures to the Ferrari 312B that was in Stoneleigh show.
I am looking for some tech image of that car, could anyone help? Many thanks in advance,
Gab
