These were the used for crash test. Austin Mini also?

palacebear wrote Look closely at the red one in the this pic. No stainless steel trim around the side-window. A glimpse of a single-dial dashboard. Bog-standard Austin or Morris Mini 850, dressed up with Minilite wheels.

1967 Austin Mini Cooper S Mk1 (which should be the description as well for the 3 main chase cars), despite the 1968 G plate. This looks genuine Cooper S (grille, bonnet badge, chrome lower side trim). Also quote "The only Coopers used other than those in the main chase sequence were, a red Austin Cooper S, registration OEG103G and a blue Austin Cooper S, registration WGH415G. These were used early on in the film, as the gang practice jumping the Coopers off a ramp." from http://www.theitalianjobminicoopers.co.uk/index-5.html . However this quote may not be totally reliable because of the reference to OEG 103G as a Cooper S, which palacebear's comment convincingly contradicts (though there may be 2 red Minis involved in the different pictures - one with a rollcage, one without in the crash with the blue one).

So in the end it is the same as the other Minis? So no need of a separate page?

In terms of the film, probably justifies its own page as only used in English-based testing before the main event. As for the car it has its own story/folklore, which with some ambiguity about the red one coming in alongside, is perhaps also worth keeping separate.

I'm surprised they used mini's for the main car.. if it's THE Italian job... why not use the FIAT???

Because the film story it's set in Italy with British characters?
