BMC Car Transporter & Two Minis BMC Competitions Dept'OD76BMC003
The Competitions Department of BMC at Abingdon was the hub of the highly successful BMC and later BL race and rally teams, operating during one of the most exciting eras of motorsport. They used a BMC transporter, registered BMC 34, for carrying two classic Mini Coopers to the Salzburgring circuit.
The transporter is decorated in bright red with a white upper body and lots of gleaming chrome work. The BMC lettering is printed along the sides and across the rear doors in blue/white including the famous BMC rosette emblem. The interior features a cream partition between the driver\'s cabin and the section carrying the cars.
The rear doors on this model open to house the two Mini Coopers. No. 30 represents the car registered 666D of John Rhodes, whose name appears along each side of the bonnet. The red car with white roof proudly bears the colourful sponsorship stickers along each side of the body. No. 31 is John Handley\'s car registered LRX 827E, also red with a white roof and emblazoned with sponsorship stickers.
