This Mini was built in Belgium (Seneffe). During May 1965, the UK production of the Mini attained its highest weekly production figure, when both Cowley and Longbridge produced 5000 cars. On August 6 BMC announced it would be producing some of its vehicles at a plant at Seneffe in southern Belgium. This enabled the company to circumvent tariffs on imported non-European Union vehicles.
After this Mini 1000 left the Belgium factory in 1977 it was first registered in September in the Netherlands. It was restored and modified to Cooper specifications in 1993-1994 and fully documented since. The engine was changed by a 1275GT block and head, with a 4 Synchro gearbox. Other modifications include:
Painted metal wheel extensions.
Moto Lite Steering wheel
Front disk brakes
Two SU HS4 carburettors
KN air filter
In the last 18 years the car only has driven 2.800 km. Visit only by appointment!
