World’s Oldest Unrestored Mini to Cross the Auction Block

(Via LEFTLANENEWS) The car is a 1959 Austin Mini Se7en De Luxe Saloon that wears chassis number AA2S7/108. It was built in May of 1959, making it the eighth car of its kind to come off the production line. The body is finished in Farina Grey and the interior is upholstered in red.

Historians believe that only three Minis older than this example still exist today. One is displayed in the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust museum in England, and the other two are in Japan. One of the cars in Japan has been converted into a convertible.

This piece of British automotive history is up for auction and is estimated to fetch between RM94,000 to RM119,000.

Proton Persona Ultra Racing Chassis Strength & Stabilizer Bars

Fender Bar (1 Pair)

Gen 2 Fender

Installed at the left and right side of the vehicle wheel arch or fender. Fender bars can give extra support and strength to the chassis especially during cornering.

As most of the vehicle’s front chassis over hanging is designated to carry the vertical loads from the front suspensions, it is vital that this part of the chassis is strong enough to take the bounce and rebound force of the suspension. Else, the effort of a good suspension will lose its meaning if the chassis absorbs all the forces from the suspension and not letting the suspension does what it suppose to do.

Therefore, these high quality 3-Point Fender Bars strengthen and reinforce these essential areas of your car and help maintain the suspension in position from all kind of vertical loads.

As a matter of fact, Fender Bars come as a standard feature on most of the high performance vehicles such as MITSUBISHI EVO and SUBARU WRX. Now, you can have the same feature on your car too!
Advantages of the fender bar:

  • Improve handling, stability at high speed and cornering, hence safer driving.
  • Provide a better braking and stopping performance.
  • Reduce NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness).
  • Increase stiffness of vehicle front chassis.

TW3.005 P.Waja.Gen2.Persona Front Bar

Mounted at the front chassis for strengthening purposes. To eliminate all the suspension noise and more stability during acceleration, hard driving and braking ( simulating race track conditions ).

Every vehicle’s front chassis is different therefore designs and develops the front bars based on the actual conditions of the vehicle, repeatedly testing and proving to its perfection. High attention is taken during the design and development stage to ensure the chassis is able to withstand the load when a bar is being installed.

Ultra Racing is proud to bring to you the first of its kind in the country, the MULTI-POINT Front Strut Bar. The Front Strut Bar is installed to minimize the weight transfer of the vehicle body, therefore the vehicle will not loose traction easily during cornering.

REAR STRUT BAR & REAR UPPER BAR

Ultra Racing Rear Strut and Rear Upper Bar
Ultra Racing Rear Strut and Rear Upper Bar

Mounted at rear section of the car chassis (boot). Similar to the function of the front strut bar. The rear strut bar is use to support the rear section of the chassis, so that the force generated during hard braking and driving can be reduced.

The Rear Strut Bar is particularly useful for an FF vehicle. The Understeer behavior can be corrected by stiffening the rear chassis by installing a Rear Bar.

High attention is taken during the design and development stage to ensure the rear chassis is reinforced and strengthened in a proper way that it will not cause the vehicle body to undergo too much stress.

Rear Upper Bars is designed for vehicles with high roof and high CG (Centre of Gravity) such as MPV’s, mini MPV’s, SUV’s and Hatch Backs.

Initially, Rear Upper Bar is invented specially for the 5 Doors Hatch Back cars. The 5 Door Hatch Back cars have weaker rear upper body due to their wide opening rear door. Under extensive investigation and actual road proving, it corrected the shortcoming of the vehicle’s swaying rear upper body.

ROOM BAR / SIDE FLOOR BAR

It is the bar linking both the B-Pillars within the passenger compartment. The effect of room bar is particularly obvious for a four-door sedan. This is because four-door sedan has a longer body than the hatch-back or coupe, the chassis is by nature weaker than the later two.

ANTI-ROLL BAR / SWAY BAR

Anti Roll Bars (also known as anti-sway bars, sway bars or lower tie bars) affect the handling of the car on the lower end of the suspension. Sway bars tie the lower suspension components together across the front or back, and affect a car’s over steer and under steer. Sway bars will keep your car flat in turns instead of leaning over to one side. They distribute energy from the side of the car with all the force from the turn on it to the other side of the car, bringing the whole car down flat instead of leaning to one side. Of course the car will still lean some, but not as much. Sway bars provide better cornering especially at high speeds and work very well in conjunction with strut tower bars. However, they can have an adverse affect in off-road situations by leaving one tire completely off the ground.

The Ultra Racing Lower Arm Bar is designed to reduce the flex of the vehicle chassis where it is connected by the Lower wishbone of the suspension system, thus to lessen the distortion of the vehicle lower suspension when it is under load, especially during hard cornering. It is installed at the lower mounting points between the left and right suspension and the vehicle chassis. Tremendously improving the stiffness at the area where the lower arm is connected to the vehicle chassis. The Ultra Racing Lower Arm Bar also keeps camber accurate during hard cornering.
