Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Look­ing a treat, the sale cat­a­logue’s cover star had been re­stored in the early 1980s and picked up many prizes in 1985. Bought by the ven­dor in 2006 it had cov­ered 3000 miles and scooped sec­ond prize in the 2009 Mini Cooper Reg­is­ter Con­cours, and two years ago re­ceived ex­ten­sive en­gine work to the tune of £5000. Still in truly lovely or­der through­out, the lit­tle car went on to slacken buy­ers’ jaws when it more than dou­bled the auc­tion­eer’s lower es­ti­mate (it was listed at £23,000-26,000).

SOLD £47,250
