In Mini Magazine June 14 Issue 225:
Even better than the real thing? That's the question we pose In June's issue of Mini Magazine, in which we bring you probably the best Works Mini replica in the world – a painstaking copy of Paddy Hopkirk's '64 Monte winning Cooper S, 33 EJB, which is now owned by Paddy himself!
Fans of the Cooper S will also love Nigel Kemp's beautifully-restored Mk3 Cooper S, while those who prefer it's slab-fronted contemporary, the 1275 GT, will appreciate Lachlan Wood's superb modified example from 1970. From here on out it's hot Minis galore, with a fiberglass-bodied 1380 and a 130bhp turbocharged saloon based on a humble '70s Mini 1000. And for fans of the obscure, how about a rare 'booted' Mini Mk3 from South Africa – possibly the only one of it's kind in England.
But what about tech? We've got that covered too with a step-by-step guide to fitting braided clutch and brake hoses, fitting lower balljoint spacers and an in-depth look at cam drive options courtesy of our resident guru Keith Calver.
All this plus a report from the Goodwood 72nd Members' Meeting, the Pride of Longbridge, the latest news and club updates, motorsport, our projects, new products and much more.
