Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY JACK WIL­LIAMS

SIR Paul McCart­ney’s old Mini Cooper and the last car used by John Len­non are be­ing auc­tioned.

John’s Mercedes-Benz 300TD sta­tion wagon was parked at the Dakota build­ing in New York where he lived at the time he was shot dead there in 1980.

Sir Paul’s car was one of four cus­tom-built Minis made for him and his fel­low Bea­tles.

His 1965 Mor­ris Mini Cooper S De Ville was fea­tured in the band’s 1967 film Mag­i­cal Mys­tery Tour.

World­wide Auc­tion­eers, which is sell­ing the cars, said it is “a once in a life­time op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire a gen­uine piece of 1960s rock his­tory”.

The sale is on Septem­ber 1 in Auburn in the US state of Indiana. An es­ti­mate has not been put on the cars.
