MK1 & MK2 Interiors

The Classic Mini MK1 & MK2 was manufactured from 1959 to 1970 and can be easily identified by its external door hinges.

The MK1 & MK2 Mini's do not share aspects of the interior with the MK3 (Onwards) Mini and as a result, retrimming a MK1 or a MK2 is classed as a bespoke project here at Optimise.

This means that your project will need to be booked into our bespoke schedule of work (please ask for details with regards to our current bespoke work schedule availability) and it also means that we will need a majority of your original interior trim here at Optimise HQ (allowing us to check the fitment of each & every panel, to ensure that everything fits perfectly).

Plus, we do find it is often the case that many of you are looking to keep your MK1 or MK2 original, if this applies to you please make sure to check out our original (OEM) interiors information: LINK

Here is what you need to know:

  • A majority of Classic Mini front seats (from the later style non-recliner front seats to the MPi front seats) are interchangeable and you can install any original Classic Mini seat in any variant of Classic Mini, using the same fixings. As a result, we are able to offer both front seat cover kits and front seat retrims for the MK1 or MK2.

    However, early MK1 Minis (and occasionally later MK1s or even early MK2s) did have a different non-reclining front seat type.

    Our standard range of front seat cover kits & seat retrims for non-reclining front seats are for the later types of frame only (with the looped frame legs) and if you have early type non-reclining front seats (with the vertical frame legs) we would recommend replacing them with the later style of frame. The later style frames (with the looped frame legs) are a vast improvement and you will never be able to tell the difference (unless you inspect the framework of the seats).

    In addition to the front seats, many MK1s also had a different back seat squab.

    Our standard range of back seat cover kits & seat retrims are for back seats with a squab frame. If you have an early type back seat squab (without the frame, which is simply a trimmed piece of horse hair foam) we would recommend replacing it with the later frame style. The later style seat squab (with the frame) is a vast improvement and you will never be able to tell the difference (unless you remove the seat and inspect the framework of the seats).

    Just to let you know (despite recommending that you upgrade to the later style seats), we can certainly offer seat retrims for the early type non-reclining front seats (with the vertical frame legs) or for the early type back seat squabs (without the frame), please contact us for further information.
     
  • If you require a carpet kit (or any aspects of a carpet kit), I'm afraid we would need the MK1 or MK2 here at Optimise HQ to complete the work.
     
  • The prices listed below include padded dash rail retrims, if you require the metal dash rails trimmed instead (like many early Minis), I'm afraid we would need the MK1 or MK2 here at Optimise HQ to complete the work. Alternatively, if this is not possible we can provide matching material so you can trim the dash rails yourself. Please ask for details & estimates of either service.

And now have the information out the way, we can get straight into the price lists:

For reference, all of the prices detailed below include items trimmed in our standard trimming ranges (our standard leatherette, standard carpet, standard perforated leatherette and standard OEM headlining options, listed accordingly).
