"This picture of a Radford Mini De Ville was a mystery for many years.....it now turns out to be part of ' The Psychopath' a 1966 horror movie"

This car was again up for auction at Silverstone Auctions at the NEC Classis car show in Birmingham in November 2016.
While looking at the car I met John Hammel who was also looking at it. We got chatting about it and he told me how he had owned it several times before and with hindsight wished he had never sold it. I asked him if he was interested in having it back yet again and he said yes and was going to bid on it.
I didn't see it being sold and often wondered if John was the winning bidder and managed to get it back again.

Not now its not was just removed while I was looking at it. The separate interior looked interesting as did the interior in the car. The interior in the car seemed very basic for a de-seamed car. But I suppose it may have been what the original owner would have wanted.

One of my biggest regrets was getting rid of the W & P Clubman that I had the best part of 18 years ago now, a brilliant 998auto with a 940 head and twin carbs. Was brilliant fun and turned a few heads.

Oh well....
