Uprated heater with 33% more core than our standard Mini heater. (Limited production run)

This is a Top Quality Heater matrix made in the UK to fit the Austin Rover Mini Heater matrix up to 1970. Our challenge 30 years ago was to make a replacement heater that was very strong and that had the same heat performance as the original. The standard Mini heaters in our webshop have been meeting this challenge to this day. Mini owners have also begun to realise that the cheap imported heaters available are poor quality and not worthy of what is now a much loved and valuable classic.

The value of this classic now means that some enthusiast want something that is more than standard. To this end we have developed a heater with 33% more core. You still get the same top quality brass tanks, top quality brass pipes and the same external dimensions (which means it is still a direct replacement) but the core is thicker. This core has more water tubes and more of the highly efficient ‘louvred’ finning compared to our standard heater.

This is about as much ‘core’ as you are ever going to get in a heater of this size!

You can click on the image to enlarge it or move your cursor over a specific area to look more closely at a particular feature on the heater core. The dimensions given below are at the longest, widest and deepest points of the heater and not the centre core measurements. If you are not sure whether this is the heater you require please contact us and we will help. The heater for sale here has pipe centres of 115mm but if you need the rare version with 125mm pipe centres, please contact us.
