Hi all. I have acquired the 5th production Mini made, registered CVC576D in Coventry on 6th Jan 1966. It was used by Ferguson Tractor Research to evaluate the installation of the 1500 diesel engine to replace the 948 and was the first of a batch of conversions which are covered in my book. It was already on field trials by the end of 1966. The history of the tractor prior to the last few years is unknown. At sometime most of the tractor had been painted silver over the original orange. Does anybody have any knowledge of this tractor, photos, used to own it etc? Send me a message or note my contact details from my book advert in the Nuffield Club website. Thanks John Poulter.
