Mini Jem Chronology

1962
Dizzy Addicott had an idea to produce a sports car using Mini mechanicals. Using his Morris Mini Van and some sheet aluminium he formed a new body shape. This new car was called the DART. 

1964
Jan.: The DART is exhibited at the Racing Car Show at the Royal Horticultural Society's Halls in London. Although some orders were taken, Dizzy decided not to go ahead with production and refunded the deposits. The aluminium body was too expensive to produce, so Jem Marsh suggested that they produce bodies in fibreglass1.  This was going to be done at Marcos, but because of various difficulties (financial and otherwise) Jem Marsh 

cancelled the project. Dizzy Addicott returned to his career in aviation. 
1965
Jeremy Delmar-Morgan, who had worked with Dizzy from the start, bought the design. This new fibreglass car adopted Jeremy's nickname, Jem. 

1966
July: The first three cars were built. 
Sept.: Three cars were entered in the Nürburgring 500km race and Delmar-Morgan came 2nd in class 2. 

1967
Jan.: the Mk. 1 was released at the Racing Car Show. 
Mid.: Robin Statham took over production from Jeremy Delmar-Morgan and began producing the bodies with Dan Pearce at (Jem Cars) Fellpoint Ltd., Penn, Buckinghamshire. 

1969
Jan.: The Mk. 2 was released at the Racing Car Show. 
Mar.: Production of the Mk. 2 began. 

1970
Robin Statham raced a few times at Lydden Hill and Mallory park achieving seconds and thirds. He also competed in a Mod-Sports race at Silverstone finishing third behind an AC Cobra and an E-type Jaguar. 

1971
July: Fellpoint Ltd. went into liquidation after the financial backers pulled out. The moulds and rights passed to High Performance Mouldings of Cricklade in Wiltshire, and the Jem was back in production. The VW-based Jem Futura did not survive. 

1972
Mid: High Performance Mouldings moved to Wombwell in Yorkshire and began producing the Mk. 3 with opening rear hatch. 

1973
Dec.: Production of the Jem at High Performance Mouldings stopped. 

1974
Jan.: The moulds passed to Malcolm Fell at Salthouse, Barrow-in-Furness, Lancashire. 

1975
April: Malcolm Fell ends production of the Mini Jem at the end of the month.
