Great looking car wasn't it for the '69 Tour de France , one of my favourites, shame it ended up a crumpled wreck a few years after that photo was taken.


Spot the difference, Looks like they ran both 10s and 12s on the '69 TdF Auto

Must have been the first appearance of 12s on a Mini then Stu..?

Nice tidy Mk1 Austin 850 in an early episode of 'The Champions', 1968...

Cowley Technical Publications Department - 1965


Love that pic, as a tech illustrator I thought I'd be doing that for life... at least I still have my lamp. Weighs a ton ;-)

12" alloys were homolagated on 1st July 1969, TdF was in September, so it was pretty close.

12" Roses were fitted to both Downton and BMC racers in April 1969.

I think those massive BL badges came from the JU vans.

Still my favourite badge of all time - the silver on blue flying plughole!

That Radford looks to be Sand over Sable in colour (gold over brown!) (my Radford's original colour!). Have you got the original photo Nidge? Looks to be Rod's 1970 Lambo, he also had a '71 aswell! He wasn't with Britt until '74 ish and she didn't have a Radford in this colour as far as I know, she still had her W&P Mk2 at this time. I'd guestimate this photo was taken around '71 and he was with model Dee Harrington at that time (from '68 to '74) so was the Mini hers. or even Rod's? He made a mint in the Summer of '71 when Maggie May was a big hit single so splashed out on this 36 room mansion in Ascot and another Lambo!

Looks like the yellow '72 SV to me. The other was a metallic blue S.
