Sorry Taffy but in light of the contact from Mini Mag and the subsequent topic here>> http://www.theminifo...howtopic=154582

I have had to remove the scans of the pages from your post in line with the Rules and Regs as follows (final paragraph is pertinent here):


TMF does not allow the posting of copyright material on the forum unless the copyright is owned by you or by this BB, or you have specific permission from the copyright owner to do so. Once you post the material you assume all responsibility for it. Failure to adhere to this policy will result in the post and material being removed and a warning given to those making the post.

If you would like to reproduce any of the material from TMF you must ask the original poster's or TMF's permission first.

No scans of magazines that are still for sale by Mini Magazine will be allowed on the forum, that's anything up to 6 months old is not permitted under any circumstances unless you have received written permission from Mini Magazine. Magazines that are 6 months old are only permitted if permission is obtained from the magazine staff


Congrats on your continued success and if anyone wishes to see the articles they are both on page 9 of the last two months editions of the magazine

Expect to pay over £1000! Wow! Bet you could add an extra 0 onto that now, seeing as it's the oldest Mini. So what's all this about 621 AOK? Not the oldest...?

Sold at auction in 1999 for just under £3000, now thought to be in Japan:

Lot 320: Morris 1959 MiniMinor Registration Number: 434 NWL Chassis Number: M/A2S4/D/98 Engine Number: 3MB.U.H5334 E4700-5700 One of the oldest known surviving examples of the legendary Mini, and with a particularly interesting history.

Auction House: Sotheby's

Auction Location: United Kingdom

Auction Date: 1999

Description: Morris 1959 MiniMinor Registration Number: 434 NWL Chassis Number: M/A2S4/D/98 Engine Number: 3MB.U.H5334 E4700-5700 One of the oldest known surviving examples of the legendary Mini, and with a particularly interesting history. This 1959 Mini, the 40th Morris Mini-Minor built, was completed on May 25th to export de-luxe left hand drive specification. Sold to Bernard Ferriman, in 1962, the Mini remained in the same ownership until acquired at auction in 1985 by Penta Reading, who thoroughly restored the two-door saloon. Auctioned by Sotheby's in 1987, the car was bought by Today newspaper and featured as a competition prize in 1988 The winners formerly exhibited their prize at a motor museum (since closed) and have carefully maintained and garaged the saloon, painted in Old English White. A V5 registration document, M.o.T certificate and a trace certificate from British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, (who estimate that the Mini is among the ten oldest surviving), are included.
Later update:
The car came off the production line at Cowley on 20th May 1959 bearing chassis number 140. It was LHD and was allocated to the experimental dept for proving tests and re-allocated with another number. After a couple of years when they had finished with it it was converted to RHD and sold to Bernard Ferriman who worked for BMC. It was then re-allocated yet another chassis number 98. This re-allocation of numbers occured with a few cars that were plucked off the line for testing and then subsiquently sold off 2nd hand to employees. ( They went backwards from 101 ).

So I guess '621 AOK' is still the oldest surviving Mini then?

But did any of the prototypes you see in the Mini Books survive?
