Publication Number H. 6163 (7/61)


The first brochure for the 997cc Morris Cooper . Various versions exist, the changes were made to reflect changes in specification and local market conditions. This style of brochure was used until the introduction of the 998 Cooper in mid 1964.

    


Publication Number 2178/a


Firstly, a big thank you to Peter Winter for a copy of the rarest 1071 brochure of all! The mythical 2178/a This is the original brochure with the warranty information un-blocked out.









Publication Number 2178/a  (again)


Just to show that when you think you know it all, something comes along to flummox you. This brochure is also a 2178/A But this time it has no paragraph regarding the warranty. Thanks to Jamie MacRae for the scan.




Publication No: H & E 6315 (4/62)


The first Morris Cooper S brochure, for the 1071cc model. This one is by far the most interesting! In the first edition, firstly the date code is April 1962!, it should be April 1963 and secondly there is a blanked out paragraph, if it is examined very closely, the following text is revealed.


"Truly a remarkable combination of ingenious design & engineering perfection providing the competition enthusiast with the cheapest means of pursuing his sport without infringing the manufacturers warranty on his vehicle"


Unfortunately, this was never a part of the deal. Just think how much the warranty claims would have cost!


Publication Number 2049


The first brochure for the 997cc Austin Cooper . Various versions exist, the changes were made to reflect changes in specification and local market conditions. This style of brochure was used until the introduction of the 998 Cooper in mid 1964.



Publication No: H & E 6418 (4/64)


Another very rare beast, this is the Morris Cooper S brochure that fills the gap between the first Monte win in Jan 1964 and the introduction of Hydrolastic suspension in summer 1964. Most of these were pulped upon the introduction of Hydro! If you find one of these, you are very lucky!




Publication No: 2230/A


The Austin variant of the rarest of the Rare Mini Cooper S brochures. This one was released for a short period between February and June 1964. It only lists the 1275 & 970cc variants but describes the original dry suspension system. As rare as Hens teeth



Publication No: H & E 64115 (9/64)


The "Standard" Morris Mini Cooper& "S" brochure from summer 1964 until the end of MK1 production in 1967. Many slightly different versions exist but they are all similar. Very common and a bit dull. 



Publication No: AKD 2284 (Various Suffixes)

        

The "Standard" Austin Mini Cooper& "S" brochure from summer 1964 until the end of MK1 production in 1967. It has been issued under a variety of different suffixes, I have seen at least 6, all very similar with only very slight detail changes to the text. Click on image for a copy of AKD 2284 / F

    



Publication No: 2460, Austin / 2461 Morris


BMC are obviously beginning to cut corners with the introduction of the MK2 models, the cars are still badged as both Austin & Morris, but the brochures are identical, apart from the fact that one has "Morris" over the Mini-Cooper (as here) and the other has "Austin" in the same place.



Publication No: 2692 Austin / 2694 Morris


BMC are obviously beginning to cut corners with the introduction of the MK2 "S" models, the cars are still badged as both Austin & Morris, but the brochures are identical, apart from the fact that one has"Morris" in the bottom left hand corner (as here) and the other has "Austin" in the same place. 

Publication No: 2735


The end of the line. No longer Austin or Morris. Just Mini Cooper S MK3. Produced in very limited quantities (like the car). British Leyland and a guy called Stokes couldn't wait to kill the Cooper & S off. They finally succeeded in early 1971.
