They were successful in selling well, (the mini eventually, it was shakey for the first couple of years) but BMC/Austin lost money on every car they sold! Ford actually bought a Mini to try and work out how much it was costing BMC to make. They worked out (correctly as it happened!) that they were selling each mini for something like 5-15 quid less than the cost price.
