lightweight front grille

6 comments

  1. hello,
    does anybody have any informations about the lightweight front grille of AJB 44B. Where can i find one like this? is this grille a production part of other car model.for example the GRX 311D had the front grille of a midget.
    thanks!!!!!!

  2. Pretty sure these grilles were cut to fit the mini shape, from an Austin A60 grille section of pressed aluminium—the A60 models certainly used a similar designed grille as std and was a bit bigger than a mini needed.

  3. The Mk2 A55 was also pretty similar…not sure if exactly the same. The publicity mock up 997 Cooper 'KEL 236' also had a grille of this type.

    I saw on ebay a NOS Austin Westminster grille –that looked the same pattern but not sure if it was wide enough for the mini shape to be cut from it.
