The frame of an old MINI that was recovered from the tunnels of the old Longbridge plant in England and has recently sold at auction for about $2,500.
The 1275 GT Clubman was rescued by a former factory worker before the tunnels of the Longbridge factory were planned to be filled in. Sources say that the vehicle was used as a utility vehicle for employees of the factory until one fateful day when a storage contain fell onto the vehicle, destroying it. While the MINI is in rough shape it is not devoid of value. In fact, the MINI is believed to be the last model 1275 GT to ever leave the assembly line, and it recently fetched a decent penny at the Silverstone Auctions.
It’s unclear whether the new owner has plans to rebuild or if they’re just interested in its historical significance. Either way, we’re happy that this has surfaced!
