I’m not a hypocrite, in real terms this is simply a replica of Barrie’s famous car. Nothing wrong with that and in complete fairness the description is very honest.

Regards the price, in my opinion maximum £40k :D :D

Hope I'm wrong :?:

Yes a lovely man, I met him only once and that was with a gentleman who was very ill and formally wore a white helmet on a popular car TV show. Listening to those two was simply magical!

Usual flowery auction description. Norman Grimshaw built 120 MNP in the early 90s! The car sold at auction was the Mini Barrie loved and regularly used for the last 20 years we can all agree on that. That car has nothing to do with the original which went off to the race track in the sky some fifty years ago but it was Barrie’s and brought him a lot of pleasure.
