RRS Wasp survives... and can be yours

Remember last month's Mystery Mini Derivative, known as the RRS Wasp? (click here if not). Well, I have been sent some pictures of the car taken very recently in a showroom in the Midlands. It looks to be in excellent condition and is for sale, too! The seller is open to offers. Information about its history remains unavailable though, so the hunt for its original builder continues. Who knows more about the Wasp's' past?

Plain simple interior certainly used 1100 bits - seats, dashboard and wheel...

And the engine is believed to have been sourced from an Austin or Morris 1100 also

The RRS Wasp is for sale. I'll get you in touch with the seller when you are interested

  1. Hi, I once owned a car very simular to this one. Bought for me as a project in my early teens by a family friend from local to where we lived in Branston, lincolnshire. Unfortunately the council stepped in and we were no longer allowed to keep it at the property, so it was moved to a scrap yard in Lincoln where my uncle worked. One day it dissapeared and I never saw it again, I was devastated. I have photos somewhere of my friends and I sitting in it in the late 80's.

    Regards

    Paul.

  2. I once had the original paperwork confirming it as an Austin RRS Wasp prototype but unfortunately after so many years and house moves I no longer have it. It would be great to see it.
