I've just picked up some original advertising material here in South Africa, with original dealer writing etc. on them. Hope they can be read.

 

First one is dated November '59 :

The following two sections fold out from the back :

Improves the styling? That's a matter of opinion.

 

In the early 1960's there was a guy who had just finished his apprenticeship at de Havilland Aircraft and he sold his MG TF and bought a fairly new Mini. Now a lot of we ex-apprentices then had Minis, but this guy's Mini was, how shall I put it, rather less than totally reliable. In fact, it was dreadful and he never stopped moaning about it as well as fixing it.

 

Now we had an internal post system, so we used to cut out all the Mini ads and send them to him via internal mail. Every day he would get loads of ads saying:

 

"Mini Motoring is Fun & Trouble Free"

"It's Mini Magic"

"Mini-Cooper for the Fast Lane"

Etc.

 

It kinda drove him mad!

 

In the end he sold it and bought a Ford. That might not have been any more reliable, but it stopped the ads arriving!

Looks like a strange version of the SA Mk3.
