Footnotes

  • "The new Mini was as different from the British small car norm in 1959 as a space shuttle from a firework. It bristled with innovative ideas, it looked radically different from any other car and was the most compact 'real' car Britain ever produced." – Chris Rees, Complete Classic Mini.

    One of the most influential automobiles of all time, the Alec Issigonis-designed Mini debuted in 1959 to universal acclaim. True, there had been numerous front-wheel-drive designs before the Mini's arrival, but the transverse engine layout allowed Issigonis to create a trend-setting masterpiece of automotive packaging. The first Mini prototypes were running by November 1957 and in April 1959 the first pre-production examples were hand-assembled at Austin's Longbridge factory.
    This Austin Mini was completed at Longbridge and despatched to Stringer Motors of Southsea, Hampshire on 1st May 1964 and was first registered on 6th June that same year as '204 LOT'. In November 1994 the lady vendor's husband acquired the car from Brockenhurst Mini Centre for his wife (invoice on file) and registered it in her name. '204 LOT' appears to have been Hampshire-resident for its entire life. Last taxed to the end of December 1998, the car has been dry-stored for the last 20-or-so years. Offered for restoration, or indeed as a basis for race conversion to compete in pre-66 historic racing. This car is sold strictly as viewed and comes with a V5C document and BMIHT Certificate
