Fastback Minis

In South Australia there were 2 manufacturers of Mini coupes.
There was the Taylorspeed Gem from Taylors of Medindie.....
(This is the Mark 1 version).........and there was the Dedez from Ecurie De Dez, virtually across the road in Nailsworth.
No show without Anne Wills.
Anyway, here's a nice looking fastback in Japan.
And a 4-door Mini also in Japan.
And a Kiwi ute.

Was Des H workshop not located behind the "pack of thieves" car yard in O'Connell Street?

The fastback De Dez Mini had a great shape. I always thought the Taylorspeed and Gems oddly shaped.

It was on Main North Road but sort of directly alongside Scotty's Motel.

I think Buckle did a Fastback in Sydney too.
