The car’s designer Alec Issigonis is at the wheel.
The Mini was launched in August 1959 Morris Mini Minor and the Austin Seven, which soon became known as the Austin Mini. In latter years it has been known simply as the Mini.
We see a gathering of Longbridge staff around the Mini production line as Alec Issigonis gets into the car and drives it off the end of the line. A brief shot of production lines at Longbridge follows.
