Mini Cooper Register
They stopped fitting them on UK built cars in late 1967 or early 1968 – shortly after the Mk 2 was introduced.
I'm not sure which ones to use.
Does anybody know the correct one for my Aug 64 S?

Any idea whenthey changed to the more commontype – any change points mentioned in the parts book? Can't find my early parts manual :X
Never seen one like the blue one. All the ones I've seen have been the same as the bottom example 😕

That would be around October 1967, which is at least confirmed by my December 1967 Mk II Cooper as itdoes/did not have them.
My late 63 850 has the blue type,
And my 67 850 has the orange type.
Anyone else got any ideas?
I have only seen ones like the orange ones too. Is it possible the blue one is a repro?
The Mini Machineshrouds arevery close to the original (orange) one, I'm thinking the top one's a spurious reproas you sayMark.
I don't have fitted them either. The reason: as we say in Dutch [font='comic sans ms'][color=red][size=3]erg roestgevoelig [color=black][size=2](terrible rust-sensitive)…[/size][/color][/size][/color][/font]

I took a pair of shrouds the same as the blue ones off an early'60 built car. As far as I could see they were original.
I seem to remember someone on another forum restoring a '59 that had that style of shroud.
My 59 has the blue shrouds – same as the ones on the 60 i had.

My Mk1 early '65 Cooper does not have it's radius arm shrouds. I'm sure they probably rotted away years ago and were not replaced when it was last restored.
What year did minis cease to have these shrouds fitted?
