In my view, Mk2 and Mk3 cars are in short supply. I think Mk1 cars are plentiful?

Are early 1959 / 1960 cars that rare?

What do others think are rare children? :) :)

Some of the 1980's and 1990's special editions are rare now. When was the alst time you saw a Mini Neon or Equinox? Or how about a Chelsea or Piccadilly?

And because I am biased towards the squares, early Clubman Estates with the stick on wood are not seen to often these days.

Thank you Stuart for your thoughts. I'm not far behind your thinking. All Minis now are classic without doubt. In my veiw a very early Mini 1275 GT must be up at the top of rare Minis now :D :D

Exactly! I had an 80s Sprite (Red or Primrose) would love one again but I can’t remember the last time I saw one...

Mk III S would be one of the rarest. MkI Supers very much so

John, I also would say Mk3 cooper S. However, a friend tells me the Austin / Morris Supers are in the smallest numbers? He claims the Austin / Morris Supers are more scarce than 1959 / 1960 cars :) :)
