JCW R50 In Pure Silver . Conversion number C55
A rare car as not many were built with this conversion, let alone at John Cooper Works. This car was built from new at John Cooper Garages East Preston. Sold new by Mike Raven and built by Alan Winchester.
The Conversion consisted of new Cylinder Rear JCW exhaust in stainless with a JCW exhaust tip.
K&N air filter and a download to the electronic control unit taking it up to 126bhp. It also came with a rear Works badge and two side repeater works badges . It has now had the sun visor signed by Frank Stephenson, the designer of the car.
I originally drove this car in 2003 when it was first purchased, though it was only in the car park at John Coopers when I worked there from 1982-2006.
