Description

Produced from 1959 until 2000, the classic Mini is loved by millions of owners, previous owners and enthusiasts. The Mini's creator, Alec Issigonis, was given a free hand to make a proper small car and his innovative design not only redefined the family car, but also started a revolution as a performance car. Classic Mini Specials and Moke explores the diverse range of vehicles that used the Mini shape, as well as the only variation actually designed by Alec Issigonis, the Mini Moke. In addition to the famous race and rally cars, coachbuilt conversions and highly modified saloons and commercials, Keith Mainland looks at overseas Mini and Moke production and the many factory-produced limited edition Minis. There is also advice about buying and owning your own special Mini.
