Colin Gilks – Award Winning 1275 GT
It was a blazing hot day at Malvern Spring Classic Car Show but this custom 1275 GT was hotter..
This beautiful Mini belongs to Colin Gilks and has been in his possession for 2 years now. When Colin purchased his Mini it was a completely different beast, it was actually a 998! Since then it has a complete 9 month long nut and bolt restoration carried out entirely by Colin him self! It was yellow but Colin has chosen the fantastic reynard bronze which in fact is the same colour as the infamous “Tunnel Mini”.
Colin has fitted the complete ABS Motorsport body kit, which in my opinion looks amazing! Some other external modification include smoothed rear valance, shotgun shell wheel nuts and a rear abs window louver! He hasn’t stopped at the exterior, Colin has also upgraded the stereo system to a 1000w system which has been mounted into the back and has a completely custom dash made just for him!
Congratulations to Colin for winning the Best Custom Mini at the Malvern Spring Classic Car Show!
