It is just over two weeks until the 25th Beaulieu Spring Autojumble and preparations for the club’s display to celebrate Mini60 are nearing completion.
So far, we have 55 cars taking part from one of the earliest 850cc models produced in 1959 right up to the very end of production in 2000, and a kaleidoscope of factory colours, some of which are rarely seen today.
Amongst those on display are ex-works cars, a Mini Cooper police car, two coach-built Radfords, one of them a rare Traveller version and the other the 1966 BBC Adam Adamant TV series car, which was featured in the recently-published Mini World anniversary bookazine.
Also, we have a complete cross-section of Mini Coopers from the 1960s, 1970s and 1990s, Mini vans and pick-ups, a Riley Elf and an Italian Innocenti Mini Cooper.
Club organiser John Parnell said “My event email inbox has been very busy and everyone has had personal replies.”
“There has been a lot of enthusiasm for this display and it is a pleasure to promote the whole weekend as a destination event that will entertain on multiple levels.”
All those taking part will receive a memento of the event from the National Motor Museum.
