    Vintage Mini BMC Commercial - From the Autoline Vault

    This commercial shows all the different people who enjoy and drive minis. First is a sort of lumberjack looking guy (they have those in England?) followed by a young flower girl going to a wedding and a very well to-do older woman who has her chauffeur follow her as she drives so he can open her door when they arrive. This cheeky ad is quintessentially Mini.

    HIO! Such a blatant and poorly executed innuendo. I guess I'd take the poor innuendo with the normal girl as opposed to the GIANT BIG BREASTED WOMAN DOING SOMETHING OBVIOUSLY REVEALING.

    British "humor" has always been slightly "quirky" as I recall...

    That is an Australian ad not a British one but the comment about humour still applies.
    Well the original windows used to slide backwards and forwards and she really would prefer up and down movements!
    I think the DeLuxe was an Australian only version of the Mini -it was at least developed here.

    Yes an Australian advert and thats Brian Henderson of Bandstand fame!

    Wind-up windows for Mini were an Aussie developed exclusive, along with many other local improvements also to 1100, 1800 and MGB

    From our mates 'Over the Dutch' here's a great NZ advert touting the technically advanced 1100 and its terrific Hydrolastic suspension (in Oz aka hydropastic) an exceptionally effective system
