Classic Mini parts & spares
Here are Shop4AutoParts we stock a wide range of classic Mini spares and parts. The Classic Mini , designed by Sir Alec Issigonis, was manufactured from 1959-2000, a whopping 41 years! Voted as one of the most influential cars of the 20th century, the classic Mini was as much at home on the city streets as it was on the Race and Rally courses.
Already an iconic vehicle, the Mini gained even more popularity when it featured in the film "The Italian Job" and was seen being driven by the likes of Steve McQueen, The Beatles, Twiggy and Enzo Ferrari, to name just a few. Of course, another amazing thing about the classic mini is that one day in Brighton 27 people managed to cram themselves into one -an astonishing world record when you consider its size!
Attracting much attention over its lifespan, the Mini has gained a place in many of our hearts. One of the upshots of being such a popular car is that over the years we have been able to identify a number of the common faults that need spares for the classic mini. These include:
- CV (constant velocity) joints can be weak and often require replacing
- Front ball joints are often weak
- Thermostats may require replacement
