Motor Show - Earls Court (1964)
"Morris Mini Super revolving on stand and it comes away into four sections.
The engine of the Mini cut in two."

 

 

These BMC Motor Show stand sectioned moving cut-a-ways as shown in the video above, were quite amazing.....I would love to know more about them, how they were planned, made and constructed.....sadly I guess most of them were scrapped once the motor show season ended.

I remember seeing that at the '64 show. 

Very clever for the time.
