This has recently been released below is an excerpt from the builder and also photo's of the Buckle Mini Monaco to be released soon , for more info contact Tony at anthonywhanna@hotmail.com


2 of the pics are of the pre production Broadspeed, added red outline to the roundels, how it ran at Bathurst 69 and got a credible 3rd place against big bangers.
The Buckle Monaco pics are of the decorated unfinished pattern, shown at 50trh Mini Meeting at Zetland late last month. still a lot of work to do< detail like roof guttering and door lines and general smoothing out. Should be coming in the colours of 2 current owners, black and gold stripes and red with silver stripes!
hope you like them!
Cheers Tony









And now the broadspeed as it arrived , very nice detail and a cool model of an Australian race car ,

What an amazing little model of such a historic Mini. This would be the rarest of all Minis. I have heard BMW will release a new Mini Coupe Fastback in the near future, based on the Broadspeed concept. A nice pickup for you and one to treasure.

Interesting. I never knew those existed.
Standard Mini bodywork to the back of the doors by the look of it?

There's some more details (and brochure scans) over here Fred , http://mk1-performance-conversions.co.uk/variants.htm , was one of the many exercises in making mini's more aerodynamic . It did boost top end speed and changed the handling characteristics slightly , but more importantly looks really cool . Essentially standard mini floorpan , subframes , front and middle bodywork , just a new roof and tail on it .
