For full details please read this letter recently sent to us by the DVLA.



The Mini Traveller and Countryman Register.

We have found the companies and individuals listed below, an invaluable help with our cars.

For the best national club for the Mini go to the British Mini Club.

For repairs and restoration work see Dave Gate of Phoenix Motor Bodies in Cheshire.

Klark Classic Cars Restoration specialist in Stockholm.

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 British Motor Museum.

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)

Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs  The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs is a grouping of over 450 Clubs and Museums together with some 1500 Trade and Individual Supporters. The aim of the Federation is to uphold the freedom to use old vehicles on the roads without any undue restriction and to support its member organisations in whatever way it can”.

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