:o Alexander converted 1959 and 1960 Mini Minors, the first ones together with the Downton ones. The year was 1963, those where the days.

Nice collection of period ads! 8-)

I remember visiting 'Super Accessories' in Lewisham on a few occasions in the 1970's, they sold me a set of chrome 'Wood & Pickett' Nudge Bars at a very good price but they rusted pretty quickly and were then changed to stainless steel !
More about 'Super Accessories' here:-

I also fitted a set of 'Lander door locks' to my Mk1 back in the day as so many Minis were being easily stolen by breaking the door handle or forcing the passenger sliding window open to access the internal lock lever.

Looks like 'Super Accessories' dates back to the original Austin 7....
