Notes

The owner tell us:
“I bought it from a collector who bought it new in the 60’s in Europe. He was an ambassador living in Belgium.
I bought his collection years ago. ".

A truly remarkable find. An intriguing Mini model that we surmise is a prototype or a special issue that never went into general production.
The body is uniquely finished in this distinctive shade of grey. Red interior. Note the incomplete interior at the rear of the model.
Rivetted base.
