The Mini is a little economy vehicle produced by the British Motor Corporation as well as its successors from 1959 till 2000. The authentic is considered a British icon of the 1960s. Its space-saving front-wheel drive design – permitting 80 per cent of the location of the car's floorpan with be chosen for travelers plus luggage – influenced a generation of automobile machines. The car is within several methods considered the British similar of its German modern the Volkswagen Beetle, that loved synonymous recognition inside North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the next many influential auto of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T.

This distinctive two-door automobile was crafted for BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis. It was produced at the Longbridge plus Cowley vegetation inside England, the Victoria Park / Zetland British Motor Corporation factory inside Sydney, Australia, plus later additionally inside Spain, Belgium, Chile, Italy, Malta, Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela plus Yugoslavia. The Mini Mark I had 3 main UK changes – the Mark II, the Clubman as well as the Mark III. Within these had been a series of variations, including an property automobile, a pick-up truck, a van as well as the Mini Moke – a jeep-like buggy. The Mini Cooper plus Cooper "S" were sportier versions which were effective because rally vehicles, winning the Monte Carlo Rally 4 occasions from 1964 from with 1967, though inside 1966 the Mini was disqualified following the finish, together with six different British entrants, that included the initially 4 vehicles to complete, beneath a questionable ruling which the vehicles had employed an illegal mixture of headlamps plus spotlights.

On introduction inside August 1959 the Mini was advertised beneath the Austin plus Morris names, because the Austin Seven plus Morris Mini-Minor. The Austin Seven was renamed with Austin Mini inside January 1962 plus Mini became a marque inside its own appropriate inside 1969. In 1980 it again became the Austin Mini plus inside 1988 the Rover Mini.
Designated by Leonard Lord because project ADO15 as well as the product of the Morris shape team, the Mini came to exist due to a gas shortage caused by the 1956 Suez Crisis. Petrol was again rationed inside the UK, sales of big vehicles slumped, as well as the marketplace for German bubble vehicles boomed. Lord, the somewhat autocratic head of BMC, reportedly detested these vehicles thus much which he vowed with free the streets of them plus shape a 'proper miniature car'. He laid down certain simple shape requirements: the auto ought to be contained inside a box which calculated 10×4×4 feet; as well as the passenger accommodation must occupy 6 feet of the 10-foot length; as well as the engine, for factors of expense, ought to be an existing device. Issigonis, who had been functioning for Alvis, had been recruited back with BMC inside 1955 plus, with his abilities inside designing little vehicles, became a all-natural for the task. The team which tailored the Mini was remarkably small: and also Issigonis, there was clearly Jack Daniels, Chris Kingham, 2 technology pupils plus 4 draughtsmen. Together, by October 1957, they had tailored plus built the authentic prototype, that was affectionately called "The Orange Box" due to its color.

The ADO15 selected a traditional BMC A-Series four-cylinder, water-cooled engine, nevertheless departed from custom by mounting it transversely, with all the engine-oil-lubricated, four-speed transmission inside the sump, plus by employing front-wheel drive. Almost all tiny front-wheel-drive vehicles developed because have chosen a synonymous configuration, except with all the transmission commonly individually enclosed instead of utilizing the engine oil. The radiator was installed at the left side of the vehicle thus which the engine-mounted enthusiast can be retained, nevertheless with reversed pitch thus it blew air into the all-natural low stress region beneath the front wing. This place saved car size, however had the downside of feeding the radiator with air which had been heated by passing over the engine. It furthermore exposed the whole ignition program with the direct ingress of rainwater by the grille.

The suspension program, crafted by Issigonis's friend Dr. Alex Moulton at Moulton Developments Limited, utilized compact rubber cones rather of traditional springs. This space-saving shape furthermore showcased increasing progressive-rate springing of the cones, plus offered several all-natural damping, inside addition with the general dampers. Built into the subframes, the rubber cone program gave a raw plus bumpy ride accentuated by the woven-webbing seats, however the rigidity of the rubber cones, together with all the wheels' positioning at the corners of the vehicle, gave the Mini go kart-like handling.

Initially an interconnected fluid program was planned, synonymous with the 1 which Alec Issigonis plus Alex Moulton were functioning about inside the mid-1950s at Alvis. They had evaluated the mechanically interconnected Citroën 2CV suspension at which time, that inspired the shape of the Hydrolastic suspension program for the Mini plus Morris/Austin 1100, to test with keep the pros of the 2CV program, yet with added roll stiffness which the 2CV lacked. The short development time of the vehicle meant this wasn't prepared inside time for the Mini's release. The program intended for the Mini was further developed as well as the hydrolastic program was initially employed found on the Morris 1100, established inside 1962; the Mini gained the program later inside 1964. Ten-inch wheels were specified, thus hot tyres had with be developed, the initial contract going with Dunlop. Issigonis went with Dunlop stating which he desired even small, 8 inside wheels. An agreement was prepared found on the ten-inch size, following Dunlop denied the eight-inch proposition.

Sliding windows permitted storage purse inside the hollow doors; reportedly Issigonis sized those to fit a bottle of Gordon's Gin. The boot lid was hinged at the bottom thus which the vehicle might be driven with it available to grow luggage room. On early vehicles the quantity plate was hinged at the best thus it may swing right down to stay noticeable whenever the boot lid was open. This feature was later discontinued following it was noticed which exhaust gases can leak into the cockpit whenever the boot was open.

The Mini was crafted because a monocoque shell with welded seams noticeable found on the outside of the vehicle running down the A plus C pillars, plus amongst the body as well as the floor pan. Those that ran within the base of the A-pillar with the wheel perfectly were described because 'everted' with supply more space for the front seat occupants. To further simplify construction, the hinges for the doorways plus boot lid were installed externally.

Production models differed within the prototypes by the addition of front plus back subframes with the unibody with take the suspension plenty, plus by having the engine installed the additional means round, with all the carburettor at the back instead of at the front. This layout necessary an additional gear between engine plus transmission with reverse the way of rotation at the input with the transmission. Having the carburettor behind the engine reduced carburettor icing, however, the distributor was then exposed with water coming inside by the grille. The engine size was reduced from 948 with 848 cc; this, inside combination with a tiny heighten inside the car's width, cut the best speed from 90 mph with 72 mph.

The Mini form had become thus popular which by the 1990s, Rover Group – the heirs with BMC – were capable with register its shape because a trademark inside its own proper.
The manufacturing variation of the Mini was demonstrated with the hit inside April 1959, plus by August many 1000 vehicles had been yielded willing for the initially sales. The Mini was officially announced with the public about 26 August 1959. Many 2,000 vehicles had been transmitted abroad plus will be shown which day inside almost 100 nations.

The initially illustration, a Morris Mini-Minor with all the registration 621 AOK, is about show at the Heritage Motor Centre inside Warwickshire. Another early illustration from 1959 is today about show at the National Motor Museum inside Hampshire.

The Mini was advertised beneath BMC's 2 principal brands, Austin plus Morris till 1969, whenever it became a marque inside its own proper. The Morris adaptation was recognized with all because "the Mini" or Mini-Minor. The word minor is Latin for "lesser"; thus an abbreviation of the Latin word for "least" – minimus – was selected for the unique even small auto. One name proposed for the Austin variation was Austin Newmarket. Austin dealers available their virtually identical automobile because an Austin Seven, that recalled the common tiny Austin 7 of the 1920s plus 1930s. "Morris Mini-Minor" looks with have been a play about words; the Morris Minor became a heavier, popular plus effective automobile which continued inside creation.

Until 1962, the vehicles appeared because the Austin 850 plus Morris 850 inside North America plus France, plus inside Denmark because the Austin Partner plus Morris Mascot. The Morris name Mini was initially selected for Austin's adaptation by BMC inside 1961 whenever the Austin Seven was rebranded because the Austin Mini, somewhat with the surprise of the Sharp's Commercials vehicle business, that had been utilizing the name Minicar for their three-wheeled cars because 1949. But, legal action was somehow averted, plus BMC selected the name "Mini" thereafter.

In 1964, the suspension of the vehicles was changed by another Moulton shape, the hydrolastic program. The modern suspension gave a softer ride, nevertheless it furthermore improved fat plus manufacturing expense. In 1971, the authentic rubber suspension reappeared plus was retained for the remaining lifetime of the Mini.

From October 1965 the possibility of the specific Automotive Products tailored four-speed automatic transmission became accessible. Cars fitted with this became the Mini-Matic.

Slow at the outset, Mark I sales strengthened over nearly all of the model lines inside the 1960s, plus creation totalled 1,190,000. Ford bought the Mini plus dismantled it to find when they might provide an alternative. Ford determined which the BMC need been losing about £30 per auto, so decided with make the greater vehicle – the Cortina, introduced inside 1962 – because its rival inside the budget marketplace. BMC insisted which the technique organization overheads were shared out, the Mini usually produced cash. Larger income came within the prevalent De Luxe models plus from optional extras including seat belts, door mirrors, a heater along with a radio, that will be considered necessities about contemporary vehicles, and the different Cooper plus Cooper S models.

The Mini entered into prevalent culture inside the 1960s with well-publicised purchases by movie plus music stars.
The Mini Moke is a car based found on the Mini tailored for the British Motor Corporation by Sir Alec Issigonis.

The name originates from "Mini"—the auto with that the Moke shares various parts—and "Moke", that is an archaic dialect expression for donkey. The Moke has been advertised below many names including Austin Mini Moke, Morris Mini Moke plus Leyland Moke.

The initial shape had been a prototype for a light military car inside the fashion of the American Jeep, nevertheless its little wheels plus low ground clearance prepared it impractical because an off-road car. It was subsequently available inside a civilian adaptation because a low-cost, conveniently maintained utility car. The Moke finally attained achievement because a beach buggy—becoming a favored 'cult' car inside the Algarve, Seychelles, Australia, the United States plus countless tropical hotels inside the Caribbean. The authentic Moke employed identical engine, transmission plus suspension components within the Mini Van.

The initially Mokes were just built at BMC's Longbridge, Birmingham plant. 14,518 Mokes were yielded inside the UK between 1964 plus 1968, 26,000 inside Australia between 1966 plus 1981, plus 10,000 inside Portugal between 1980 plus 1993 whenever creation of the Moke ended.
Whenever Issigonis crafted the Mini, he planned another car with share the Mini's mechanical components, however with a more durable body shell. This was an attempt with take a part of the military car company from Land Rover. Issigonis had earlier crafted the Nuffield Guppy inside a failed attempt with break into which marketplace. By 1959, BMC had functioning prototypes of what was codenamed "The Buckboard", later with become the Mini Moke. These prototypes were shown with the British Army because a parachute-droppable car, yet bad ground clearance along with a low-powered engine didn't meet the many simple needs for an off-road car. Only the Royal Navy showed any interest at all inside the Buckboard—as a car for utilize found on the decks of aircraft carriers.

Early marketing information produced much of the lightness of the car, showing 4 soldiers going inside the Moke off-road, then selecting it up by its tubular bumpers plus carrying it whenever its low ground clearance proven inadequate.

In a further attempt with create anything for the military, a some four-wheel drive Mokes were created by the addition of the 2nd engine plus transmission at the back of the car with connected clutches plus gear shifters. This did nothing for the ground-clearance issues, plus mechanical problems frustrated development beyond the prototype stage. This car was called "The Twini" plus was shown with the US Army—again without achievement.

Three of these cars were chosen by the Brazilian Army following being grabbed throughout the 1969 Rupununi Rebellion from Guyanese rebels, that had crossed the edge into Brazil.
Eventually BMC gave up found on the idea of marketing the Moke with the military, plus inside 1963 the choice was produced with build a civilian adaptation, targeting farmers plus light commercial applications. Many prototypes were integrated 1963, 1 of that is nonetheless acknowledged with exist inside Pinner only outside London, England. The Moke was established onto the British marketplace inside 1964. The British Customs plus Excise department decided which the Moke ought to be categorized because a passenger automobile instead of because a commercial car that meant it attracted buy taxes, reducing sales inside its intended commercial marketplace.

The Moke attracted attention because a 'cult' car because a happen of the unprecedented achievement of the Mini plus by media exposure inside the prevalent tv series The Prisoner, and inside the Traffic track "Berkshire Poppies." Despite this, just regarding a tenth of the 14,500 British yielded Mokes were available inside the UK. Mokes continued with be prepared inside Britain till 1968.
1967 Austin Mini Moke
