Air Utility Vehicle



Before working on the Mini, Sir Alec Issigonis designed several military vehicles, mainly during World War II. At the end of the 1950s when the British Army sought a suitable lightweight, air-transportable, utility vehicle, a brief was sent to Issigonis. His response was a vehicle codenamed "Buckboard", built by the British Motor Corporation under Issigonis's supervision. Presented to the Queen's troops in 1959, the first prototype was rejected due to its low ground clearance. However, the Royal Navy showed some interest in it, as a vehicle for use on the decks of its aircraft carriers and they were later adopted by police forces in both the UK and Africa.
