Mini from Holden Vintage & Classic

BMC's Leonard Lord hated 'bubble cars' and tasked Alec Issigonis to design something to beat them. The result was the Mini, launched in 1959. The engine was transverse. The gearbox was in the sump. It drove the front wheels. Those wheels were tiny. The whole car was tiny. The motorcar had been re-designed! After the saloon came the Traveller and the Van, plus Riley Elf, Wolseley Hornet and Moke. As soon as he got his hands on a Mini, racing car constructor John Cooper started looking for ways of making it quicker. He enlarged the engine, fitted it with twin SU's and disc brakes and the Mini-Cooper was born, followed by the Mini-Cooper S. Over the years there were many variations of both the Mini and the Mini-Cooper, the Mk II, City, Mayfair, Clubman, 1275GT and many Special Editions. By the end over 5 million had been manufactured, plus nearly half a million by Innocenti in Italy, Spain and Belgium. In 1994 BMW took control of the Company and allowed production to continue until October 2000. They recognised the value of the brand name 'Mini' and now manufacture their 'new generation' at Cowley near Oxford.

Over the years Lucas, SU and others supplied parts for the classic Minis, many of them being parts common to cars being built by other manufacturers. We stock and supply many of these items, to find them look under the appropriate heading. Included are a number of parts specific to Minis. These specific parts, accessories and books are listed below:
