Mini Cooper by Connor and Christopher

We have been giving the task to find a event which happened in the 60’s and write about it.

We have chosen to do the Mini Cooper Mark 2 as it is interesting and it was a late release in the 60’s.

The Mini Cooper Mark 2 is also called the Morris Cooper and the Morris Miner Mark 2. It was made in 1969. The Mark 2 got famous by being in the film , The Italian Job , that featured in a car chase.

Mini produced 429,000 Mark 2’s, its engine size was 998cc and it was £631.

In the late 60’s issigonis had been working for a replacement for the original mini. That was ws supposed to be shortere and more powerful than the Mark 1, but  due to management decisions at BMC it was not built. Instead of that the Mark 2  was released, featuring a redisigned front grille which remained like that font that point, and also a larger rear window among other cosmetic changes.
