Austin Se7en Countryman Preliminary Specification (Pub No: 1887)


This is an amazingly rare document. Upon the introduction of the Countryman & Traveller documents were produced for the press launch, these were contained in a very stylish folder. I have reproduced the folder, the brochure and one of the press release photos here. Other press photos

are available in the PRESS PHOTO section.



Austin Se7en Countryman (Pub No: 1882)


"Business before pleasure" This was the "Main line" Country,man brochure available for the launch. With its Bowler hatted gent on the front, it left you in no doubt as to the market segment that this Mini model was aimed at. Undoubtedly "The Posh Persons Mini" Until the Riley Elf & Wolsley Hornet came along of course. Opens out to 22 x 16" approx.



Austin Se7en Countryman (Pub No: 1883)


Published in 1961 another very early Countryman brochure. Modest when compared to the Saloon Brochure / posters of the period this was a simple 4 sided 8 x 11" flier that detailed the main points of interest of this new Mini variant. Inside the interior picture of the rear is cunningly taken from the right hand side so you can't see the stupid internal petrol tank of these early models.



Morris. New Colours (Pub No: 39037)


Just how stupid can one company get? Published in September 1961 this small, some would say totally insignificant black & white flier was published to promote the new colour schemes available for the Mini range. What more can I say?



Austin. Dual purpose perfection (Pub No: 39037)


Far more lavish than the previous version this brochure became the standard throughout MK1 Countryman production, unfolding to approx 22 x 16" this brochure is crammed full of details and description of this popular Mini version. Both the Woody and non woody are described. Produced in at least 10 versions with only minor alterations.



Morris. Wizardry at work again! (Pub No: 62210)


Once again the Morris advertising guys show they are superior to the Austin lot! Published in March 1962 This beautiful brochure opens up to approx 22 x 24" and is crammed full of beautiful artwork and info. Far superior to anything produced by Austin.



Morris. Wizardry at work again!, AGAIN! (Pub No: 6366)


Identical in almost all respects to Publication Number 62210 (above) this brochure is for the Non Woody! Spot the difference. Believe it or not I owned both these brochures for years before I did!



Morris. Thrifty..all purpose. (Pub No: 2352)


This brochure became the standard until the end of MK1 Traveler production, unfolding to approx 22 x 16" this brochure is crammed full of details and description of  this popular Mini version. Both the Woody and non woody are described. Produced in at least 6 versions with only minor alterations.



Morris Traveller MK2. (Pub No: 2466)


Morris make a brave effort to present the MK2 Traveler in a good light. Nice bright colour car, obviously taken a happy couple off for a sailing weekend, but why are they launching the boat from what looks like the back of a council office block? Brave effort, but you can tell that the golden days are over.




Austin Countryman MK2. (Pub No: 2439)


Once again the Austin guys manage to choose a dire dark miserable colour for their MK2 offering! both MK2 brochures open out to 22 x 16" approx.
