The is the first Mini Cooper, appearing in May 1962 and lasting until 1965 when a series of ‘Rally’ editions would replace it.
There are two main colours, blue and primrose with talk of a pale lime green but that I have yet to confirm. The blue comes with either a lemon or red interior. The primrose always has red. The numbers can be 1, 3 or 7 and there are scarcer thin types of number too. The bonnet may be either white or body colour but the roof will always be white. Lastly, late editions had free spinning wheels but most are fixed, shaped wheels. Quite a few variations to collect!
This is a slightly battered example with a fair bit of paint missing and a small dent in one wing. These thin numbers are quite scarce, though, so it is still not that cheap. There is also an original box available - see 227-6 for pictures.
