They were issued in the USA
BMC 's art department must have been pretty lazy.
As you see the happy couple have now become the proud owners of a 3000!
Except the car appears to be a 100-Six!!!
Note the drum brakes and the ridge in the bonne
Publication # 1431
This is a small format brochure. It is only a quarter of the size of the ones above and is much rarer.
It is printed using only red, black and white
Publication # 1597
Do you recognise the happy couple !!!
This brochure is for the optional hard top only.
Only the 100-Six model existed at the time so it can be seen as a 100-Six brochure
Another large format, full colour brochure but this one only has 4 pages
It exists in many versions each being slightly different for different countries and also for the introduction of the 6 port model.
It doesn't exist as a BN6 version.
This is essentially the same brochure but the artist has altered it to the 2 seat format of the BN6

Publication # 1428
is different from the other brochures shown here in that it is for Dealers not customers.
The package contains examples of three advertisments that the dealer may order and have his business name and address included in them.
To order the ads the Dealer had to complete and return the card shown on the left.
This package is so rare that most collectors I have spoken to have never seen another one like it.
