  • 1971 RWA Midget 1275 (vvc K conversion)

    I've fancied a Spitfire or Midget for quite some time.

    I like vivid colours on old cars, nothing brown or green.

    When this popped up I wanted it! Then it slowly got reduced to something that was affordable.

    So here is the new girl, 1971 round wheel arch midget with a 1275 a series.
    It had a lot of money spent around 2009 with new front wings, full respray, full engine rebuild, about 5k worth of restoration.
    It's done about 10k since and the engine is still sweet as a nut, came off the road sometime in 2014 and been stored since so needs light restoration again.

    I need to upgrade the clutch and flywheel on the Allegro ready for some more track action next year then this can get moved into the workshop. I've already bought a set of gunmetal superlites, roll hoop and starting to look for a type 9 box and caterham bellhousing.

          what about a k100 or k1100 conversion ??
          would also look great in that engine bay. and there is plenty of space for carbs, throttle bodies, nice exhaust header pipe ...
          ... compared to the mini.

            Google Bugzuki nice job fitting a Suzuki G13B twin cam into a Bugeye Sprite. As Cedric says, lots of room for almost any of the small twin cam engines

            Cheers
