No, and not Leyland either. I guess that the car was scrapped some time ago. Well, we can't use DVLA this time, though the plate was well readable.

The vehicle details for HWJ 665W are:

Date of Liability 28 05 1995
Date of First Registration 01 08 1980
Year of Manufacture 1980
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 998CC
CO2 Emissions Not Available
Fuel Type Petrol
Export Marker Not Applicable
Vehicle Status Unlicensed
Vehicle Colour RED

:D

The clue to find it is the 'W' registration, which means 1980/81. In that year Mini was used as a brand name under the corporation name Austin Morris, which was part of Leyland Cars, which was part of British Leyland Limited.

The model name in that year was HL Estate. The Clubman name was no longer used.

Registered under "Austin Morris" on DVLA actually.
To not mix them with the new Mini I think that we should also use "Austin Morris" as make, like what we said few times already.

I know that it is listed under Austin Morris -- that's the way I found the info above -- but the brand name is 'Mini'.
While the 'Mini' by Austin Morris is written normally, the 'MINI' by BMW is written in capital letters.

We shouldn't start confusing brand and corporation names. And in this case (unlike LiAZ/Liaz, Triumph/Triumph, Adams/Adams, Eagle/Eagle) it is still the same brand, which was quite important for BMW. Only the owner and the model changed.

But you were insisting that the Trabant were not "Trabant" make because registered as Sachsenring, and not that it is the same with Mini/Austin you say the opposite? :D I am lost :whistle:

While you mention it ... :D ... no, not tonight ...

A while ago I posted a lot of documents about Sachsenring being the brand name and Trabant the model.

The Mini became a brand name in 1969 and Austin or Morris were no longer used for this car. On other cars the brand names Austin or Morris were kept and for vans a combined brand name 'Austin Morris' was created.
It is quite confusing, but just as confusing as the history of the British motor industry.

Rear badge says Clubman Estate. 1000 HL Estate introduced Oct 80, so this is very late final month Clubman.
