Default Mini cooper onroad nitro?

I've been looking for an older model mini cooper nitro on-road?
I've tried numerous hobby stores but they won't order out of their current supported brands (HPI, Traxxas etc)

Closest I have come, is getting a GV 2000 and stick an older model fiat body onto it.
I like the "boxy" older cars.

Anyone got any ideas?

I have a very rare HPI RS4 Nitro Mini - many upgrades and spares, can sell as RTR or without electronics. Send me PM if you are interested and I'll send you the full details and pictures.

Tamiya use to have one that they offered on their old TG-10.mk1 chassis but it was discontinued some time ago (with old school Mini body). I think they revised that with the TG-10.mk2 chassis but not sure (with the new look Mini body). If they did offer it, it probably has been discontinued as well. But if push comes to shove, see if they offer the bodies in question, then you can put it on whatever 1/10th scale chassis you choose.
