Mk1 Performance Conversions.

All you’ll ever need to know about performance mini’s under one roof. This brilliant site is the oracle of period performance. The archive launch photographs used on this site are reproduced by kind permission of Mk1 performance conversions.

You should find many examples of rare and unusual Mini items here at Min-e-Bitz.

The Motor Heritage Centre.

A British Motor Industry Heritage Trust heritage certificate is the best way to confirm the build date of your 59. They are great value and it helps support this great institution and the records that they keep. Why not spend the day looking over their collection and even take a look through the build records yourself. (an appointment with the archive department is usually needed and much advised)

We are very grateful to the The British Mini Club for their support.
