The Mini is a small economy car made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC)
and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a
British icon of the 1960s. Its space-saving front-wheel drive layout --
allowing 80 per cent of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for
passengers and luggage -- influenced a generation of car makers. The
vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent of its German
contemporary the Volkswagen Beetle, which enjoyed similar popularity in
North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car
of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T.
This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis.
It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants in England, the
Victoria Park / Zetland British Motor Corporation (Australia) factory in
Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain (Authi), Belgium, Chile, Italy
(Innocenti), Malta, Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela and
Yugoslavia. The Mini Mark I had three major UK updates -- the Mark II, the
Clubman and the Mark III. Within these was a series of variations,
including an estate car, a pick-up truck, a van and the Mini Moke -- a
jeep-like buggy. The Mini Cooper and Cooper "S" were sportier versions that
were successful as rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times
from 1964 through to 1967, although in 1966 the Mini was disqualified after
the finish, along with six other British entrants, which included the first
four cars to finish, under a questionable ruling that the cars had used an
illegal combination of headlamps and spotlights.
On introduction in August 1959 the Mini was marketed under the Austin and
Morris names, as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini-Minor. The Austin Seven
was renamed to Austin Mini in January 1962 and Mini became a marque in its
own right in 1969. In 1980 it once again became the Austin Mini and in 1988
the Rover Mini.

I have purchased a large collection of hundreds of Austin Mini/Classic Mini
parts. The person I purchased these parts from had been racing his Minis
for decades, was meticulous regarding his detail with these cars, and only
used the best parts. The four complete Minis are all Cooper S, and most of
the parts are either race parts, 1275 Cooper s parts, or just 1275 parts.
I plan on selling all of the parts on EBAY, and I have had great
experiences with EBAY in the past. You can view my collection and a video
of the parts at www.vcmotorsports.blogspot.com. Please do not hesitate to
ask any questions, and you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will post
these for sale on ebay soon, or make me an offer.
The Mini Story: The Original, the Cooper, the Legacy
Back in 1959, BMC changed Britain's automotive landscape with the unveiling
of the original Mini. 54 years on and the little saloon remains as charming
and iconic as ever.
