... Home ... Forum ... History and Facts ... Other GRP/Minus Creations ...
The Minus is basically a Glass Fiber(GRP) replacement
body/chassis unit for any ageing and invariably rusting, classic Mini. it also
has a shortened body height of 3inches.
But can use ALL the same components as the classic Mini, like; front sub frame, engine, gearbox, radiator, suspension and steering, the rear sub frame, the windscreen and all glass, headlights, rear lights, front seats, exhaust system, wheels and brakes.
Now due to the reduced body height, the components that need modification are;
the Doors, they need shortening by 3inches, normally lose everything under the base of the bottom hinge,
the Seats front and rear, again height issues here, so front seats have their mounts shortened, and the back seats need complete alteration both in height and width,
the Wiring loom needs additions earths (as GRP does not conduct electricity, and its the body that is normally used as the earth)
the Dash also has to be thought about due to less height between the dash 'bars/rails'.
the bonnet needs thought too, and normally requires bulges (due to less height in the engine bay) items that will foul the bonnet without further modification are the radiator (which can be lowered ) the brake master cylinder (using single line requires no bulges), the type of rocker cover also needs to be correct, otherwise there's no room for the oil filler cap/neck.
Performance and economy are said to be greatly improved due to the fact the cars height is reduced by 3inches, (less wind resistance)
and is lighter which also benefits the overall performance.
Alls seems to good to be true, well yes...... well there is one problem, they stopped making the GRP mini minus back in the late 90's so only 2nd hand shells are available

#31 Blue hillclimber(fully working)
this is a blue minus that competed in hill climbs in the south west back in the 90s.
From what I (Neil Sutton) remember this had a comprehensive roll cage, beam rear axle, and massive down draught webbers sticking out of the bonnet;
and it did rather well ! Not sure of its current situation/location
##Update 30.03.07 Had contact from the owner of this one !!! ""this car is currently sitting in my garage in Kent as a bare shell waiting for me to restore it for the road,looks a bit worse for wear now but I will get there with it.
#32 Neil Suttons rolling shell
bought new from Keith Lain back in October 1990, listed on invoice as Mk2 kit unit No 0107
started off as just a re-shell of my rusty 1275GT, then progressed to being a road / hillclimb car still with A series power but probably 8 port fuel injected,
however now I am planning Yamaha R1 power. I've just purchased an engine so I've now got to see if it will fit in the front and whether Lynx AE or another company comes up with a reverse box / diff that will work.
If all else fails I'll go the Z-cars route and fit it in the back.
(Neil also provided us with pics/info of the above 2 minus'. so many thanks)
## Update 30.03.07 I went with ZCars and got them to work their magic on my shell. I got it back in December 07', their workmanship is top notch,
I've been making slow but steady progress since.

#39 127 JTX, John Harris about to be on the road !
Is easier if i just paste in what he told me!, so in his words,
My project is at long last nearing completion. I've now sorted out my E. Mail so I've attached, I hope, a couple of shots of the car in its present state. I've just got a couple of scratches to to tidy up, fit the doors, glass and seats and then give the engine a twirl.
I've highlighted by putting the main section headers in bold :) some real nice history and build info here ! thanks again ! ......
the shell is finished in BMW Mini Electric Blue and is very shiny! Much more so than I expected! Most of the rest of the car came from bits I've had lying around.
The engine is an Austin 1300 GT unit with a Cooper 1275 S 12G940 head and Piper 285 Road/Rally cam, vernier belt driven. Carburation is via twin HS2 SUs. Exhaust is via Maniflow LCB and Rover Cooper system. The compression ratio is a bit on the low side so new pistons may be on the cards. The package is untested so I'll have to wait until I've rolling roaded it to find out if it's any good!
Sub frames are stiffened original Mk 1s fitted with fully adjustable suspension, Mini Sport Adjusta Rides and Spax adjustable Gas Shocks.
Brakes are mini 8.4" discs at the front and Minifin drums at the rear with the original single line hydraulic set up.
Wheels are Ex Mini Cabriolet Revolution Five Spoke Alloys fitted with Yokohama A510 165/60 rubber. I've had to fit Mini Spares arches, foam filled and glassed in to the shell.
Fuel tank is a 7.5 gallon unit with the top corner cut away to fit in the boot. I've fitted the fuel pump (SU) in the boot rather than below the sub frame to protect it from the elements. I'm too old now to grovel on my back underneath to kick it back to life. I may change it for a Facet pump anyway if it's as unreliable as I remember it.
I fitted one of my Minis with a rear wiper and washer set up in the 60s so I've replicated it on this car.
The boot lid is original Austin Seven Mk 1 but doesn't fit Keith's boot aperture too well. I may change it at some point to a more flexible GRP lid which I can tailor better.
The only external mod I've had to make has been to the bonnet, fitting an ERA bonnet scoop the wrong way around to clear the tops of the carbs and the K & N filters. The rest of the shell is original apart from filling all the apertures and hollow sections with foam and glassing over them to seal them. I did the same with the sub frames as well. It gets rid of all the nooks and crannies where mud and salt can collect and protects them from the subsequent damage they can cause. Apart from that I went over all the various section joins and glassed those as well to stiffen and strengthen them.
Internally, the main instrumentation cluster is ex 1275 three instrument pod and all the other instruments are oil pressure, temp, volts, amps, vacuum, clock etc. Once again these were all available so I just used them all up! Steering column is late model mini with twin stalk lights, flasher, horn, indicator control etc. I've had to do this because the seats (Huntmaster Rally Seats) are fixed to the floor behind the cross beam (I'm 6'4") to give me head clearance and a decent driving position and I can't easily reach the dash for the main controls. I've fitted a three point roll cage to compliment Keith's in built frame with additional stiffeners down to the top and bottom of the rear seat panel. I've fitted a connector between the original upper seat belt mounting points and the roll cage and moved the seat belt mounting backwards to the cage, again to suit my height and seating position.
The head lining is a recovered, modified Mk 1 two piece frame.The original intention was to build a sprint/hill climb car but that's no longer feasible so I've set it up as a fast road tourer, hopefully with enough go to keep me happy and embarrass some of the Beemers and Mercs on the twisty roads around here. I hope all the above is of interest. Once it's running I'll drop you another line and let you know how it's progressing
#40 A. Hashimoto, complete and on the road

#41 Jim Henderson, bare shell
I bought this unused Minus shell, doors, bonnet and boot lid from a guy called Andy Bacos in Norwich spring 2006. As yet have not done much to it other than trial fit some parts. He had advertised it in one of the Mini magazines as a job-lot to include engine, gearbox, wheels etc. The doors are really rough so i will use some i already had from another car. I am planning that the car be pretty conventional, A series powered, 10" wheels (Cosmic) simple single colour paint job and i'm hoping not to have to fit arches of any sort, but we'll see. Cheers Jim Henderson

#43 Q633 GRJ Andys, was on the road once
bought it from the factory in sept 1989, on the road in the following April then while out driving one day the indicator failed to cancel and i didn't notice and someone pulled out on me, the door took most of the damage, I was rebuilding a Mini Marcos at the time so i ran the Minus until the mot ran out, took the wheels, tyres and a few other bits for the Marcos and parked the Minus up with the intention of sorting it out that was 17 years ago!....one day I'll get sorted
#44 Q947 WFS *FWD Pro-motive R1 Bike engined
saw at the Stoneleigh Kit car Show in Spring of 1988 by John Harris(#39). I spoke to the owner but have long since lost his contact details. The exterior was beautifully finished but the interior was still relatively untouched with bare grp. The engine was a 999
was then up for sale in the Edinburgh area by a man named Alan (second pic)

#45 Mike Sloan, rolling shell
The shell was in the possession of a mate of mine for about 10 years in which time it was just dry stored. I have had the car for about a year and have been collecting bits for it.
So ar I have rebuilt a 1275 GT motor with a 1300GT tufrided long stroke crank, ported and flowed the head, now unleaded.
Fitted the Hepolite pistons, mild cam and a twin 40 Webber. I have just sorted the LCB and the stainless exhaust is next.The front suspension isGaz coilovers, fully rose jointed and an early sub frame.
the rear is a beam axle with Gaz coilovers all running on 1970`s 7.5 x 13 Revolutions and 195/40/13 Conti`s.

#46 MCU 759J, details emailed in by dale (see
I have just been looking through your piccies of minus’s and found a pic of my old friends Minus. He was a member of a club called MINISONTOUR – MOT for short, hence the number plate in the pic.
