Phoenix Estate

Another car I noticed at the recent Passion for Power show earlier this month. What drew my attention was the roof bars, something you don’t see on Mini’s oh and lack of seams!!!!

Turns out this was a Fibreglass body produced by Phoenix Automotive in Gloucestershire back in the late 70’s/ early 80’s. For £1395+VAT you could buy the kit to transform your old Mini Countryman in this rust free modern and sleek estate complete with hatchback rather than those barn doors. From what I could tell the only original panels appear to be the doors the rest has been replaced.

Not been able to find out much more than that, so if anyone does now more then please get in touch.
