Book Description

5 Mar 2003
A comprehensive model identification guide to the 5,387,862 Minis built between 1959 and 2000. Production of the original Mini has finally ended, but the enthusiasm for this motoring icon turned affordable classic continues to flourish and the market for well-preserved examples is stronger than ever. This book tells you all you need to know about the vast number of different models produced over more than 41 years - how to identify one type from another, their equipment, performance, technical specification, options, production dates, colour choices and much else. An essential owner's and restorer's guide to model identification, originality and authenticity. Austin, Morris, Cooper, Riley, Wolseley, Moke, special editions, and international Minis are all covered in this comprehensive review of Sir Alec Issigonis' brilliant design concept, which at the Millennium won the title of European Car of the Century.

My Partner bought this book and has used it a lot while rebuilding minis over the years, all his mini books are his bibles! He does refer to them a lot but has got rid of quite a few over the years but this one has remained, thank you

I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to purchase a classic Mini. It includes much needed info such as vin numbers, details and photos. I own a classic car dealership and use this book often for doing research.

5.0 out of 5 stars If looking for a Classic Mini this is the book you need 6 Sep 2007
By Frans van Ellekom - Published on Amazon.com
I have a modern Mini but my interest has always been in the Classic Mini. I belong to club that started as a Classic Mini club. These guys know their cars but this book is an invaluable resource. I am able to surprise these guys from the knowledge I get from this book. I bought it when I was in London and read it cover to cover on the flight back to the U.S. Of all the Mini books I own, I use this one in my quest to purchase a Classic Mini. This is the book I recommend to others who are interested in one or want to know more about the Classic Mini.

5.0 out of 5 stars You would think a Mini was a Mini, but you were wrong! 11 Feb 2007
By Loconut - Published on Amazon.com
I was deeply confused when a Mini wasn't a Mini at first. People always knew the Mini Cooper, but not the Austin Se7en and the Morris Minor and those vehicles didn't start out as small little cars. After reading the book, you can definately get confused with all the cars and names. In the end tho,you can tell each model apart. For those who wants to get a Mini, don't hesitate to grab one of these books because many sellers would mismatch parts thru different years. Another book to get is The Cars of BMC which is discontinued but worth every penny. Also, another book is John Parnell's Orginal Mini Cooper and Cooper S.
