News : BMH celebrates Mini 60th at Goodwood

mk1 mini bodyshell

Courtesy of the thousands of replacement bodyshells and individual panels it has manufactured over the last 40 years, British Motor Heritage (BMH) has arguably done more than any other company to keep the classic Mini alive for its first 60 years, and help the model on its way to another 60. It is therefore entirely fitting that Alec Issigonis’ immortal baby will dominate the company’s stand at the upcoming Goodwood Revival, 12-15 September.

The walls of the stand will be decorated in recollection of the ‘Swinging Sixties’, of which the Mini was so central a part, while the open area will be dominated by an example of BMH’s replacement Mini bodyshells cunningly suspended above the company’s own beautifully restored Mk1 Mini Cooper S.

  1. I agree their support is great for the Mini and MG models but it is sad it has not been possible to do the same for the ADO16 and I suspect the Metro, Maestro and Montego will go the same way.
