Produced from 1959 until 2000, the classic Mini is loved by millions of owners, previous owners and enthusiasts. The Mini's creator, Alec Issigonis, was given a free hand to make a proper small car and his innovative design not only redefined the family car, but also started a revolution as a performance car.

Classic Mini Specials and Moke explores the diverse range of vehicles that used the Mini shape, as well as the only variation actually designed by Alec Issigonis, the Mini Moke. In addition to the famous race and rally cars, coachbuilt conversions and highly modified saloons and commercials, Keith Mainland looks at overseas Mini and Moke production and the many factory-produced limited edition Minis. There is also advice about buying and owning your own special Mini.

" When the BMC design office under Alec Issigonis responded to market forces in the late 1950s they created a simple motor car which many could afford to purchase and run, and the Mini was born. So well did it fit motoring requirements of the day that it quickly became an icon, and a National Treasure was born. Keith Mainland is a great Mini enthusiast who has studied and photographed countless Mini variations and specials over several decades. Congratulations and to him for his excellent and authoritative book on Classic Mini Specials. It is beautifully written, illustrated and presented. "

" This book is exceptionally informative. it is a "reference book", a "coffee-table-book" and is packed with pictures (some of which are unique to the author.) There are tips and instructions on choosing your Classic Mini, details on building a Mini & overhauling a Mini etc. All Mini owners need to own this book ! "
