But, when BMC decided they needed an up-market version of the Mini, their first thought was not to just change the badges to create the Elf (and the look-alike Wolseley Hornet).
A 1934 WOLSELEY Hornet will lead the charge of classic cars descending on the Ayrshire village of Muirkirk on Sunday.
Besides the various generations, more variants of the original Minis have been produced than I can cover in this article, including the Cooper, the Cooper Sport, the Clubman, the 1275 GT, not to mention the Wolseley Hornet and Riley Elf, the Traveller, the Moke, the Van, the Pickup and Knightsbridge, and a total of 5,387,862 Minis had been manufactured by the time the original car was finally retired in 2000.
They will be joined by more unusual racers such as Mercedes-Benz 300SE and Vauxhall VX4/90 as well as Revival debuts for Wolseley Hornet, Chevrolet Corvair Corsa and Mercury Comet Cyclone.
