To the Butterfield Musketeer goes the honour of being the world’s first Mini-based kit car. It was oddly styled, with a long nose that titled forward for engine access and bulbous lines in glassfibre. It had a tubular ladder frame to which the mini sub-frames were bolted and could be fitted with either an 848cc or 998cc Mini engine. An up-market specification included a rev counter and optional adjustable dampers. Its high price (almost twice as much as a Mini) consigned it to an early grave.
