MotorWeb report: Get vehicle report

One of two GT Clubmans built in 1971 at Abingdon Special Tuning in the UK to Group 2 specs for NZ Motor Corporation to compete in the 1972 Heatway International Motor Rally.

This car was driven to 5th place by Angus Hyslop/Doc Langley. It was driven the following year by Reg Cook and also the Safari Rally in New Caledonia. The photo shows Angus Hyslop driving.

The car has been in storage since 1988 and this is the first time the car has been advertised for sale since then. The previous owner has let the registration lapse.

The car is unrestored and pretty much complete and in original rally condition. The car was fitted with a Cooper S motor with alot of S/T equipment fitted. It also had factory twin fuel tanks, S brakes and minilite wheels.

The interior still has all the original equipment including Halda Twinmaster, Monte Carlo 24 hour clock, stopwatch, rally seats, moto-lita steering wheel, roll cage and more.

The motor has recently been dismantled for inspection and is in very good condition. It is still 1293cc with forged pistons and the S crank still has standard journals. There are all new parts for re-assembly.

The car comes with brand new spare competition 7 inch Lucas spot/foglights and a spare set of minilight wheels and tyres. There are some other spares available as well.

I have sourced some of the original advertising decals off the car. If anyone is able to assist in locating any of the original Heatway/sponsors advertising logos or any original photos of GC4 I would be most appreciative.

This is a rare opportunity for a mini enthusiast to purchase a mini with well documented rally history. I am offering it for sale on the NZ market first before advertising it Internationally.
