It’s a DNA 250, usually planted on a Z3 or similar.

Love that Mk 3 Rapier. Built a few Airfix versions back in the day.

The Mini is a lot like the 1960 one which I share with my brother.

Photo of where you can actually see the number plate, the car like yours was immaculate, manufactured in December 1959 and compared the the new BMW Mini, Tiny!

I had a Rapier IIIA convertable back in the late 60’s …
I bought it in sound but “in need” condition and with access to a pro level garage was able to refurb it over about 18 months, chassis & running gear o/haul, numerous engine tweeks, and a complete paint strip & body repair, plus internal trim & new hood.
This was during the mispent yoof times, it took me all over for gigs, London/Edinburgh/Manchester and all in between. Surfing in Devon/Cornwall, motor racing and motocross all over.
Only regret … I don’t have any decent photos. (also no pictures of my beloved Norton Dominator)

Thanks for that, most interesting.

Any idea what they are intending to do with them?

Plenty of office space in a Bronco.

Ultimately, get them running…although that’s years away, from what I can gather, engine work is taking place on the 60’s, and cosmic work has taken place on the 37, I will do some asking around and let you know.

Nice to see Sir Archibald Sinclair running again, it took a while but it was worth the wait.
