Didn't spot the wheels so probably not the same.

However, did a bit more digging and found this shot titled:-

Britt Ekland getting her fortune told by the Fortune Teller Mrs. Carmen, May10, 1966.

Image

Note Eklands jacket has the same trim at the cuffs as in the car shot. Does this mean the Radford belonged to the mysterious Mrs Carmen the Fortune Teller?

If it did it means she must have been charging a packet for services rendered!

I've just about run out of ace old Mini pics, how about a dash of West Bromwich's finest Supersonic Velvet instead, parked up somewhere in that London...

A few years ago I passed up on a Mk1 Interceptor that just needed the interior finishing off for £12k, I wish I'd had the balls to buy it looking back... :roll:

One of the press fleet FFs is up for grabs for someone feeling brave, they only built 320 FFs, not many in Mk1 form...

Any further info on this one.

Described as "Prince Charles arriving at Trinity College in his Mini Cooper"

Clearly NOT a Cooper.
