Cigarette advertising was on the brink of being forbidden, so they sought of other means to publicise.

It sais that it was a 1000 Mini but in effect it was a Belgian built Mini Special with the 1098 cc engine.

I always loved to smoke JPS fags, or Camel w/o filters when I was young.
The grille actually looks similar to the Belgian limited edition Authi Mini recently posted by @UHR850, don't you think so?
If only I knew the power of the Dark Side...I wouldn't have made contact with an Innocenti :mrgreen:

...at that time you could order some accessory items from your local BL/AR-dealer:

The above is of the later 12" Austin-Rover Minis.
The grills were black but I remember older leaflets where the Benelite grills were chrome and the 5x10 ATS were on offer.

The exhaust was a Bonini, one of only very few that had the TÜV-certificate (like the ATS-wheels); without, it was impossible to pass the dreaded German MOT.
The mat black headlamp rings, door handles and the golden grille and ATS were special to the JPS though.
