PRICE RANGE £650-40,000

Up from num­ber four in our last list to the top slot, Mi­nis – what­ever their age – prove that small cars can have a big fol­low­ing. More Mi­nis than ever are com­ing to auc­tion, and while it’s easy to get swept along by the BMC Cooper-era phe­nom­e­non, there are still good, orig­i­nal reg­u­lar mod­els ripe for the pluck­ing. Early 1970s cars are at last find­ing their feet, as are all Club­mans, es­tates be­ing par­tic­u­larly highly prized. Val­ues of the 1275GT, once seen as an ef­fete Cooper re­place­ment, are on the up, but af­ford­able ones are still out there. Which­ever model it is, the Is­sigo­nis ge­nius of pas­sen­ger space-de­fy­ing ex­ter­nal vol­ume thor­oughly de­serves its top slot.
