This dashboard was the idea of Christopher Milner the Sales Manager for Riley. Plates in the engine compartment on the right side fitch plate bear evidence of this speciality.
Very early Mark I versions of both cars e. The Elf's and Hornet's special bumper overriders first appeared in Early production Mark I's also had a combination of leather and cloth seats Elf R-A2S to FR, Hornet W-A2S to FW whereas all later models had full leather seats.
In the Heinz food company commissioned, from Crayford Convertibles Crayford Engineering , 57 convertible Hornets to be given as prizes in a UK competition.
Many are still on the road as of Both the Elf and the Hornet went through three engine versions. Therefore, Mark II cars also came with increased braking power in the form of front drum brakes with twin leading shoes to cope with the increased power output.
Both Mark I and Mark II featured four-speed gearboxes three synchromesh gears with rod gear change, a. Automatic gearboxes became available on the Mark II in as an option.
The Mark III facelift of brought wind-up windows and fresh-air fascia vents. Concealed door hinges were introduced two years before these were seen on the mainstream Mini.
The gear selecting mechanism was updated to the rod type, as seen on all later Mini type cars. Automatic gearboxes were available to the Mark III in again.
Full-four synchromesh gearing was eventually introduced during Code example: R-A2S Riley, A type engine, 2 door saloon, 1st series, serial number "" .
These models were two-door estate cars with double "barn"-style rear doors. Both were built on a slightly longer chassis of 84 inches 2.
The early Morris Mini Traveller and Austin Mini Countryman cars had an internal fuel tank located on the left hand side of the rear load area.
This is identifiable by the fuel filler cap being on the left hand side of the car just below the rear window. In October the fuel tank was relocated to the underneath of the car and the filler cap was moved to low down on the right hand side of the car — the same configuration that was already in use on the Mini Van.
From the start of production both models had a decorative, non-structural, ash wood trim on the rear body, in the style of a pre-war shooting-brake.
This gave the car a similar appearance to the larger Morris Minor Traveller and gave rise to these cars simply being called a woodie. It is a popular misconception that the difference between the Traveller and the Countryman is the wood trim, or that only wood-fitted models in the Austin and Morris ranges were respectively called Countryman and Traveller, with the plain versions simply being Estates, but neither of these is the case.
An all steel version of both the Traveller and the Countryman without the wood trim was launched for export markets in April and for the home market in October at a lower cost than the versions with the wood trim.
Estate versions of the Mini were then produced in both Austin Countryman and Morris Traveller variants, both available with or without the wooden framing.
Approximately , Austin Mini Countrymans and 99, Morris Mini Travellers were built. The Mini Traveller and Countryman Register was created in to help locate and preserve the remaining Mini Traveller and Countryman cars.
Built on the longer Traveller chassis but without side windows, it proved popular in s Britain as a cheaper alternative to the car: it was classed as a commercial vehicle and as such carried no sales tax.
A set of simple stamped steel slots served in place of a more costly chrome grille. The Mini Van was renamed as the Mini 95 in , the number representing the gross vehicle weight of 0.
A utility vehicle intended for the British Army was built with a twin-engined 4-wheel-drive. Although the 4WD Moke could climb a gradient, it lacked enough ground clearance for military use.
About 50, were made in total,  from to in the UK, to in Australia and to in Portugal. As with the Van, the Pick-up had stamped metal slots for airflow into the engine compartment.
The Pickup was basic, although the factory brochure described a "fully equipped Mini Pick-up is also available which includes a recirculatory heater.
A total of 58, Mini Pick-up models were built. The Mini K was offered in 2-door saloon  and 2-door van body styles.
I-style externally hinged doors. A small round sticker with a kangaroo logo was placed on the triangular panel between the door and the front body seam.
The "Kangaroo" name was supposedly coined because it is claimed that a kangaroo can go all day without drinking which the advertisers used to emphasise the frugal fuel consumption and, possibly, larger fuel tank.
Issigonis' friend John Cooper , owner of the Cooper Car Company and designer and builder of Formula One cars, saw the potential of the Mini for competition.
Issigonis was initially reluctant to see the Mini in the role of a performance car, but after John Cooper appealed to BMC management, the two men collaborated to create the Mini Cooper.
The Austin Mini Cooper and Morris Mini Cooper debuted in September One thousand units of this version were commissioned by management, intended for and designed to meet the homologation rules of Group 2 rally racing.
In , Rhodesian John Love became the first non-British racing driver to win the British Saloon Car Championship driving a Mini Cooper. A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the "S", was developed in tandem and released in The smaller-engine model was not well received, and only had been built when the model was discontinued in There were no Mark III Coopers and 1, Mark III Cooper S.
An agreement between BMC and Innocenti was announced in to assemble manufacture BMC cars for the Italian market. The Cooper name was discontinued from the UK Mini range at this time.
A new Mini Cooper named the RSP Rover Special Products was briefly relaunched in —91, with slightly lower performance than the s Cooper. It proved popular and a new Cooper-marked Mini went into full production in late In , under the ownership of British Leyland, the Mini was given a facelift by stylist Roy Haynes , who had previously worked for Ford.
The Mini Clubman was intended to replace the upmarket Riley and Wolseley versions. At launch all Clubmans were powered by the cc engine as already used in the Mini , with 38bhp.
The Clubman Estate replaced the Countryman and Traveller. The original "round-front" design Mini remained in production alongside the Clubman and GT in and forms as lower-priced models in the new Mini range.
Production of the Clubman and GT got off to a slow start because the cars incorporated "lots of production changes" including the relocation of tooling from the manufacturer's Cowley plant to the Longbridge plant : very few cars were handed over to customers before the early months of Early domestic market Clubmans were still delivered on cross-ply tyres despite the fact that by radials had become the norm for the car's mainstream competitors.
The GT is often incorrectly described as the "Mini Clubman GT". The official name was always just the "Mini GT", and it was a separate, distinct model from the Clubman although it shared the same frontal treatment as the Mini Clubman, and was launched at the same time.
Innocenti in Italy, however, continued making their own version of the Mini Cooper for some time. While the UK-built GT was not nearly as quick as a Mini Cooper S, it was cheaper to buy, run, and insure.
It was the first Mini to be equipped with a tachometer. It also featured a standard-fit close-ratio gearbox, and initially had inch From the standard Clubman and Clubman Estate received the cc engine as also fitted to the Austin Allegro with 45bhp, although Clubmans with the AP automatic transmission retained the less powerful cc power unit.
Throughout the s, British Leyland continued to produce the classic "round-front" design, alongside the newer Clubman and GT models.
The long-nose Clubman and GT offered better crash safety, were better equipped, and had better under-bonnet access, but they were more expensive and aerodynamically inferior to the original design.
The Mini Clubman and GT were replaced in by the new hatchback Austin Metro, while production of the original "round-front" Mini design continued for another 20 years.
At the end of Clubman and GT production, , Clubman saloons, , Clubman Estates and , GTs had been made. For the Australian market, all Minis including the Van gained the Clubman front in although the car was still basically a Mk I behind the A-Pillar.
Australian Clubman saloons were marketed under the Morris Mini Clubman name when introduced in August ,  and as the Leyland Mini , without the Clubman name, from February To end Mini production in Australia, a limited-edition runout model was produced — the LS.
Production of this model commenced in July and concluded in October with an approximate total of vehicles produced.
Throughout the s and s the British market received numerous "special editions" of the Mini, which shifted the car from a mass-market item into a fashionable icon.
It was this image that perhaps helped the Mini become such an asset for BMW , which later bought the remnants of BMC as the Rover Group.
It was even more popular in Japan, which took the lion's share of the circa 40, Minis produced annually in the early s. The ERA Mini Turbo was particularly popular with Japanese buyers.
In , under Bernd Pischetsrieder , a first cousin once removed of Issigonis, BMW took control of the Rover Group, which included the Mini, fitting an airbag to comply with European legislation.
By March , Rover was still suffering massive losses, and BMW decided to dispose of most of the companies. The sell-off was completed in May that year.
MG and Rover went to Phoenix , a new British consortium; and Land Rover was sold to Ford Motor Company. BMW retained the Mini name and the planned new model, granting Rover temporary rights to the brand and allowing it to manufacture and sell the run-out model of the old Mini.
By April , the range consisted of four versions: the Mini Classic Seven, the Mini Classic Cooper, the Mini Classic Cooper Sport and—for overseas European markets—the Mini Knightsbridge.
The last Mini a red Cooper Sport was built on 4 October and presented to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust in December of that year. After the last of the Mini production had been sold, the 'Mini' name passed to BMW ownership.
Mini Hatch , the new model made by BMW, is technically unrelated to the old car but retains the classic transverse four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive configuration and "bulldog" stance of the original.
The last Mini to leave the Longbridge plant did so in , when a s GT which was used by staff to travel around the car plant was recovered from the disused tunnels under the plant.
The car was damaged by a storage container falling on it and had been left without an engine or gearbox for around 30 years before being recovered during work to infill the tunnels.
From the Mark IV onward, many special limited-production editions of the Mini were offered. These included models that were created to commemorate racing victories or to celebrate an anniversary of the Mini marque.There are 17 classic Austin Minis for sale today on tmbulgaria.com More listings are added daily.
