1 0ff Rover prototype befor became BMW Mini

Thought you guys might like to see a Rover Mini prototype that I picked up today. It was made by Rover and was a test car. Never registered for road. The car was then stripped and sent to a company to test the door seal. It had a machine fitted to it to open and close the door. If you can see the pictures of the rear glass it has the Rover logo. The car was left hand drive

There was a lot of coverage on this shell recently on Jalopnik and Motoringfile.
I'm so happy someone on NAM got it (even if it's your first post)



Way to save the heritage. Keep us updated if you clean it up!

Hi, I have sold the car to a Mini enthusiast in Portugal. He is going to restore it over time and then drive it. He has sent couple pictures of it cleaned. And says will send pictures when rebuilding
