SOLD: 1963 Austin Mini Cooper 1700cc BDA Cosworth

This 1963 Austin Mini Cooper has been fitted with a 1700cc BDA Cosworth engine and 5-speed gearbox from a Ford Fiesta. The chassis was stiffened and modified with a tube frame designed by builder/fabricator Marc Witt. Most of the design and fabrication was done in the early 90's and the build has around 14,000 miles, while the Hasselgren-built BDA has approximately 7,000 miles on a rebuild. This extraordinary Mini has loads of potential as an auto-x / track toy or an aggressive street Mini.
