Mystery Australian SHED find.

This photo was sent to Maximum Mini in the UK. Nothing is known about the car except that it is supposed to be Mini based and appears to have 10" wheels. There is a blue and white badge on the nose which is a bit hard to make out. The bonnet behind it looks interesting. Anyway, someone must know something about it.

Homemade would be my guess, it doesn't resemble any of the Mini kits that I know. I'll pop a link onto the local mini FB groups to see if anyone recognises it.

Is the nose badge Nimbus ?

Thought possibly a modified nimbus kit with roof cut off. The front also has design cues to the purvis car to follow the eureka. Where is it?

Come to think of it, it looks like one of Mr. Nimbus's sheds.

Don't the side panels remind you of a certain Ragno?

Purvis Free Spirit prototype?

Well, Anonymous, you were right. It is a Nimbus badge. It is a one-off that Clive built and never finished I don't think. Anyway, there's not much Mini on it. It's VW based and the wheels, by the way, are 13s. As far as I'm aware, it hasn't moved from that spot since that photo was taken about 3 years ago.
