William Towns's Minissima uses Mini subframes and an 850cc engine with automatic transmission. The body is a light spaceframe construction with aluminium panels. Access is via a single door at the rear. There are two forward-facing seats at the front and two seats facing inwards behind. The fuel tank is under the front passenger seat. This car was introduced in 1972 at the Townscar, but renamed Minissima when shown by BL at the 1973 Motor Show. It is now at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon.
