1967 Morris Mini Cooper S 1.3 petrol
Excellent ride and handling let down by a cramped interior
Windscreen wipers stopped working after 55,000 miles. Had a new pair fitted at my local garage.
Clutch plate broke after 63,000 miles. Had a new clutch plate fitted by the local garage.
This car drove like a dream despite being cramped and having next to no luggage space.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I've got a 1965 mini and I love it, but you got to remember its like a four seater sports car, its not a real family car (even though original adds said otherwise!) So if you want luggage space buy an SUV, but then you don't get the cheap thrills of a 1275 mini, it's a compromise.

I don't understand. I'm 6'2" and sat in a 1971 Mini at an autoshow and fit fine. Yes it doesn't have great luggage space, but that's not its purpose as the above poster states.

My uncle got so fed up of the lack of space in his 1969 cooper he had it shoved in a 10,000,000 pound press and crushed.
