It is a beauty and quite rare, way more standard Mk1s about than Mk2s. Interesting to see how long it is for sale at that price.
It was at the NEC and it's quite lovely. The BMC interior whiff is there in full. :lol:

I think somebody mentioned Christine Keeler's '61 Mk1 for sale a few pages back, just found this silent footage of her driving it in '63 on youtube…

Has this one been discussed before? Interesting history if it's true.

Who else noticed that her RH rear indicator isn't working? Bloody Lucas electrics weren't great even back then :lol:

20 Grand for a "W" reg pickup!

For that sort of money, I hope that they are throwing in your own TV career as well!
