Consolidated Technical data
Pre production technical data released to the press before launch.

Introduction to the Mini.

Consolidated technical data, published August 1959.

Sometimes you forget a little jem! Recently I was approached by someone who wanted a valuation of an original 1959 launch brochure. In actual fact what he had was part of the 1959 press pack. It was only after our conversation that I remembered that I had never published this very interesting document here.

Click on the image to the left for a high quality PDF of this original 55 page launch document. Packed full of interesting & not so interesting information. A genuinely historic piece of mini history.

Introduction to the Mini Cooper.

Consolidated technical data, published October 1961.

This is the complete technical data file for the 997 Cooper.

A very rare publication that allows you a glimpse for the excitement that must have been felt when the “new” range of Super Minis was introduced in late 1961.

This is a 50 odd page High Quality PDF download.

1071cc Mini Cooper S Final Specification.

The original and genuine press release announcing the "New" Cooper S type dated April 1963.

This is a copy of the official consolidated technical data concerning the launch of the Cooper S. As you can see if you compare this specification to the preliminary one above there were a few late changes made.
