1974 Austin Mini – Delivering The Winner’s Car!

Congratulations to Chris Allitt, winner of the 1974 Austin Mini. Mauro delivered the car to Chris on Saturday. Its fair to say Chris was stunned to see this lovely classic arriving on his doorstep! After chatting to Chris we learned he used to build the engines on classic minis. We discovered that Chris assembled the engine on this very car! Obviously Chris is a very skilled engine builder as she’s still running beautifully to this day. How amazing that this Mini has returned back to Chris!

Winner: Chris Allitt
Ticket No: 1558

The Live Draw for this competition was held on Saturday 23rd May 2020.
