Ken, a rare collection indeed, very nice. Some have suggested the Super may be rarer than the Cooper S 970. Your early 1275 GT is it a hydrolastic car?

Aren't the MK1 Riley/Wolseley variants quite rare now??? Just a thought!


Dermott, I'm inclinded to agree with you, both the Riley Elf and Wolseley Hornet are thin on the ground now. They were lovely wee cars and very well finished for a Mini back in the day. I remember my brother back in the early seventies buying a damaged Riley Elf and building it into a Mini Pick-Up shell. He used the entire running gear sub-frames and hydrolastic setup :D

I just read there are 133 variants of Mini

Sounds a lot doesnt it.......... I wonder if it is accurate ??

article from 1999, as we all know tabloids are not known for the accuracy :shock:

I wouldn't be surprised if there are more than that. There were 4 in 1959, 12 in 1961 (that I can think of)...

There are plenty of likely candidates.

My bet would be on the prototype Mokes. Only 2 I reckon.

I reckon that must be a little misleading? A mate of mine locally owns and runs a 1967 Mk1 Morris Mini Traveller which is currently taxed. I doubt his is the ONLY one :lol:
