This light gray (factory-built-in-South Africa) “Mini 1000” has a Wolseley front end, and a traditional Mk1 rear end and bootlid, including the small oval Mk1 taillights.Only about 450 were built.
This particular configuration was available only in South Africa; the U.S. owner had imported it from there.
We snapped this photo at East Meets West Mini Meet in 2004.
Its owner, Chuck H, resides in Seattle, Washington.
Update: Its subsequent owner, Peter K, has moved with it to Colorado.
