1959 Austin Mini Seven at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu
In 1957 BMC commissioned Alec Issigonis to design a new small car, following his success with the Morris Minor. Popularly known as the Mini, this innovative model popularised many design features still common today. As part of the Heritage100 museum project, this car was chosen by Claire Gregory (Property Assistant at Beaulieu) as her favourite object on exhibition in the National Motor Museum. Claire in the video explains why this museum object is significant to her and shares her memories of such a vehicle. This car has been chosen to become one of the 100 fascinating museum objects featured on the Heritage100 website. The Heritage100 website highlights interesting and quirky items from museums and archives across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Austin Mini 1000 MK1 Drive
Driving my 1966 Austin Mini 1000 Mk1 to go put in fuel. The car hasn't run in over 3 years and after sorting out the ignition problem, fiddling with the SU carb a bit and putting in fuel, it goes like it never stood still! Awesome little classic car!
