1978 Mini Clubman 1100

A familiar face: 1978 Mini Clubman 1100

We bumped into a familiar face this morning on our travels. Tucked away safely and securely in the deepest depths of Suffolk is our 1978 Mini Clubman 1100.

Great to see her again…

Replacing the Mini’s brake piston

As part of the general check over of the car we have diagnosed that the offside rear piston is seized on our 1978 Mini Clubman. We have ordered a brand new one to replace the existing. This explains why the customer felt the car braking incorrectly, it would most likely feel like it is steering to one side.

Annual Service, MOT and general check over.

Our wonderful 1978 Mini Clubman 1100 is in our workshops today for a general check up. Having been off the road and in storage for over a year we are having a general check over of the vehicle; replacing the battery, checking the brakes, giving her a full service and new MOT.

the final task required to be carried out is to detail the engine bay. She’s looking lovely as she is but a general clean underneath has been requested.

The current owner is just the second owner from new and it has remained a local car to Suffolk it’s entire life. Covering just 48000 miles the car is available for sale at the right price (says the current owner) as it holds sentimental value to him.

 

Coming in soon – Daimler Super V8 and Mini Clubman

Looking forward into February we have our 1998 Daimler Super V8 coming into the Bridge Classic Cars workshops. Currently securely stored in East Suffolk and has been for some time she is coming in to have the entire carpet set replaced and to what work we can carry out on the leather to freshen up.

And straight after we complete our works on the Daimler we’ll welcome in our Mini Clubman for a general MOT inspection and get her back on the road.
