John - Here, in part, is what AutoCult has to say.
Among these developments also the ADO 15, which advanced to the position of the most successful small car of BMC, was to be found the Mini. On 18 August 1959 the first cars rolled off the line in Birmingham and the success story took its course. While the production started and the demand increased steadily, the engineers continued their work at the drawing boards in Longbridge and sketched, designed and developed further improvements. The ADO numerical order was tireless continued. One of these developments was a mixture of a Mini that was fitted with a transmission of John Cooper and significantly more valuable interior features than the standard version. Also the bodywork of the prototype differed from the standard Mini. Those who took a closer look at the car were able to recognize that the 1963 prototype with the MG badge on its body was a mixture of a Mini and a Riley Elf.
