This “car” was built from body parts taken from a 1975 Mini, skillfully “shrunken” to approximately 2/3 the size of a “real” Mini. The body is all steel, and the time to fabricate it was over 400 hours, or about 10 weeks of full-time labor! It is not fully complete, as one can see by closer inspection – it lacks pedals and controls, a working steering gear, and general finishing. Sharp-eyed viewers may note the new MINI badge on the front as well. There is a working Honda four-stroke engine in the rear, which will couple to a centrifugal clutch and transmission. Purchased at a Classic Mini meet in England, the 2/3 Scale Mini is a perfect example of a shrinking car.
