Mini Cooper Register
i was just wondering if the works mini reg no [font=Verdana][color=#333333]TMO 560 was still around, I've have just come across an 1961 RALLYE MONTE CARLO aluminum [color=#000000]Competition Number which is 226……………..[/color][/color][/font]
No, it's long gone. The only known survivor from the 59 cars was 618AOG which I bought in the mid eighties for Ã‚Â£30. Oddly it was on a Q plate and it was only when I got a Heritage certificate (Ã‚Â£3!):)
I couldn't be bothered with the re-registration process so I used a V5 from a 1960 Mini Minor that I used for parts. The car was bought by a Japanese collector/dealer called Kuwahara in 1986/7
It was red and white and left me with steel wheels and Mini Minor trim. Who has it now??
thanks for that, do you know what happened to 363 DOC?
No, but it probably involves a crusher.:shock:
Most 1959-61 Minis were scrapped in the seventies and a battered ex rally car wouldn't have made it that far sadly.:X
Assuming that is a rally plaque that you have, race no 226 was allocated to works mini, TMO 561 1961 Monte Derek Astle/Steve Woolley. The mini was retired after being hit by a landslide. All three works minis did not finish this event.
