Hi there, i’m from belgium and also have one. Great car. I’m still looking for the side emblems ‘mini Mark bremen’. Someone has those for sale please ? Regards
I also have a Mini like the one pictured. Many parts replaced in the last 4 years. Does anyone have any real numbers as to how many bodies were molded ?
I have read that there are not many good one around.
Would be nice to get a close count.Last I heard the molds were sold to a company out East and are in
storage. Anyone have any other info ?
From what I have learner the cars. Were built in Bremen Indiana. In the early 80′s the plant burnt and shortly after the company went bankrupt. The owner is still alive but wontanswer mail or calls about the cars. I get different numbers of how many are still around (I have traced around 20). Anyone interested in starting an owners club?
I just bought a Mini Mark, hoping to drive it home (about 5 miles) tomorrow! Any luck on starting a club?
I have a Mini Mark also it is on a 1969 VW chassis. I did find out that they made 100 of them. I have heard that there are about 50. My dad gave it to me, he lives in Butler Indiana. Mine is in great condition, all the extras on it. It has a removable hard top. It would be nice to start some kind of club or something
Lisa, I too have a breamen mini mark and I too live in Butler Indiana.
Just bought one and will be driving it from Miami to western NC this weekend. Current owner does not have any owners manual, or technical documentation other than it’s on a 1982 VW chassis. Anybody have, or know where to get owners manual? I think an owners club or some type of on-line group would be great. This forum may serve the purpose for the short term.
You may want to check out my blog site on the Mini Mark, I have traced around 63 of the cars still on the road in one form or another.
I hope you can help me. My father died and left me a Mini Mark. At one time he had a ragtop on it. But so one cut so he put the hardtop back on and that was last anyone saw the ragtop. I am looking for a rag top. also the inside door was cut and someone tried to fix it with duck tape of all things. Its a great car I really want to get it back into classic shape can you help? Where can I find another rag top? thanks
Where can I find more information on this car? Can’t seem to find much (and from what I understand there’s maybe only 50 of these around anymore). I have a neighbor who will give me one, but its been sitting for years and probably needs a ton of work to run again.
Unfortunately you would just have to source the parts you might need. If the car is complete and just needs engine work you could have a fun car. As far as how many are around, they are just like any other kit car. I see people list the Bradley GT as rare but I currently own 2 and had another years ago. Most people do not know what the production numbers for these cars were to start with. If you can feel free to send us over a few photos and let us see it.
From what he has told me, it ran fine when it was parked. But its been sitting in his backyard for something like 20 years.. its got a tarp over it, and that’s all I can see of it. I plan on rescuing it in the next week or so. Considering its just a VW type 1 chassis it shouldn’t be any issue getting parts, rebuilding engine or carb or whatever it needs.
I will definitely chronicle my experience.
Anybody know about registering these kinds of cars in California? I should be taking this car home in a week, I officially purchased it now, I have the pink slip. It has not been registered since 1985! That should be before the Planned Non Operation law in CA so I don’t think I will be assessed penalties for 27 years.. Considering how long its been, I wonder if I can start from scratch with registration and if so, can I get away with registering it by the year of the chassis/engine and if that would be before 1975? Isn’t this car based on a 1972 type 1 chassis?
I personally have no idea how to do it in cali. Here in Florida is a pretty simple. What does your title say it is?
title says its a ’79. Mileage is around 22K. I don’t think just registering it should be an issue, however I am worried about smog. I assume it does not have a catalytic converter on it. I will have to pass smog to register it (the cut off date is 1975, and thanks to our former governernator Arnold that date wont be changing).
I don’t think the engine will require a rebuild, however I did plan on doing a rebuild to get the most MPG out of it (and a little more performance, but mostly for MPG).
Man I just do not know enough about Smog and such their. There are tons of VWs on the road in CA so why would yours be any different? Dont know, just asking.
Yeah, good point. Properly tuned it should probably pass like any other ’79 bug would. I will chronicle my experience. Should be interesting.
Also let us know what is going on via our other site at http://www.priceofhistoys.com
