No car has had such a profound impact on the motoring scene as the original Mini. Designed in response to petrol shortages in the late 1950s, it was introduced in 1959 in both Austin and Morris guises, with either basic or De Luxe trim levels. Success came swiftly, and before long its makers at BMC were introducing van, pick-up and estate versions, high-performance Mini Coopers, and higher equipment levels on the Mini Super. Right through the 1960s, the success story continued, and the original formula proved so right that the updated Mk II models of 1967 were instantly recognisable as versions of the original and much-loved car. These early Minis are as much admired and sought-after today as ever, offering their own unique blend of nimble driving pleasure with readily affordable running costs. They are also increasingly the subject of detailed, part-number-perfect restorations, and this book is designed to help all those who aim to restore one of these early British-built Minis to their correct specification. Within these pages, respected classic car historian James Taylor gives each major model of Mini its own section. These sections provide full details of specifications and examine individual areas of each model in depth. They are backed up by colour photography of outstanding examples that illustrate the way these cars looked when they were new. Body panels, external trim and badging, paint colours, interior trim, dashboard, instruments and controls, under-bonnet components, engine and transmission, lights -- all this and more is comprehensively covered for both Mk I and Mk II Minis. For rapid reference to vital information, this formula has proved to be the most useful one for restorers. With more than 300 specially commissioned colour photographs, Factory-Original Mini will delight and enthral the restorer and the more casual Mini enthusiast alike.

During its extraordinarily long 40-year production run, the Mini was offered in hundreds of variants. First there were the standard Austin Seven and Morris Mini-Minor saloon, van, pick-up and estate versions. Then came a whole family of Mini-Coopers, the upmarket Wolseley and Riley models, the Moke and the Clubman. Later, in the 1980s and '90s, there were no less than 41 UK Limited Editions, with exotic names like Ritz and Tahiti, and 56 International Special Editions for specific export markets, for example the Mr Bean for Japan and the Cooper Silver Bullet for Germany. Minis were also built in many countries, from Italy to Australia and Uruguay, with their own modifications. And there were the distinctive and expensive coach built Minis, beloved of film and pop stars, from firms like Wood & Pickett, Bertone, Radford, Tickford and others, including the fearsome ERA Mini Turbo.Absolutely all of these Minis are covered in this book, with photographs, descriptions, specifications, performance figures, and production dates and numbers. Whether you want to look up or identify a particular Mini or simply absorb the enormous range and variety of the Mini's incarnations, this, never attempted before, is the book.
