All about the Hamlin Special - once the Fastest Mini in the World:-
"It was built out of a blue 1959 lightweight Mini but had parts from a wrecked Cooper 'S' which Frank bought."

The Triumph Herald was launched around the same time as the Mini in 1959 so was fighting for the same customers - Not sure what this picture says about those that bought the Herald but certainly a 'period' image. Scanned from original slide C.1965.
