Visit to the British Motor Museum at Gaydon

Excited to visit the British Motor Museum and see the real life car that was the inspiration for my latest illustration, the 1963 Morris Mini Cooper S, 1964 Monte Carlo Rally Winner.

Paddy Hopkirk, with co-driver Henry Liddon, drove the car to win the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally.

The bodywork was a standard 1071cc Cooper S model, but with a degree of engine tuning. Headlamp washers, heated front windscreens and a battery of seven forward facing lights were special to this batch of cars. It had a top speed of 94mph and 70bhp.

Illustrations of this car, a standard road versions and DJB 93B are available to buy on this website and other popular selling sites.
