Can you verify this? Ron Graham left England in 93 and they were building MK5 bodies at that time. I'm not sure where Ron sourced the body from, but it's possible it was NOS body that had been assembled several years earlier. I know the racing community over there tried their best to get Ron into a later body style than the MKi he was racing. Between the historical aspect of the Trickey Mini and the possible deterioration of the MKI body, I know they really didn't want him racing that. That is really irrelevant now, but might shed light on why Ron got the body in the first place. Issues to consider would be what type of front subframe it has, which might also have been taken into consideration for Ron to use earlier subframes in a racecar. Do you remember such details?
