Now that is one name I really thought we wouldn't see again!

The Mini collection was looked after by Adrien from My Mini Revolution in Paris. He’s bought and sold a lot of cars over the last few years, a few cars from members on here, they’re huge and fantastical prices at JD now though. The one I find particularly interesting is BGJ 947B which has the late Radford hatch conversion, a well known car but now claimed to have been Peter Sellers’ which is news to many of us! Can’t remember that ever being mentioned before in all the articles it’s ever been in.

That car was at The Goodwood Revival a few years ago wasn't it (see photo attached). It is a most interesting car but very expensive!
I'm quite shocked to see how poor the masking is between the 2 colours around the rear of the car in the JD photos :o

I love the Mk2 S - mostly for the (admittedly tenuous) Steve Marriott connection. Hasnt it been offered at auction several time over the last few years? I seem to remember it at Historics -from memory (and given the advert) I assume it never sold.
The most recent "famous owner" mini that I would have loved was Peter O'Toole's car.

That Mk2 S has been sold several times in the last ten years or so and has quite a history, I chased it a couple of times but it was always just out of reach, but at the current asking price it's taking the proverbial somewhat. Previous owner John Hammel owned it three times and worked for Steve Marriot's band Humble Pie, he drove Steve round in it sometimes. I think the last time it changed hands it went for about £45k but am happy to be corrected on that.

The 1970 Raddie with the lovely JA Pearce alloys has come up a couple of times too, one of the last Ss that Radford ever did I believe. When it first appeared in magazines in 1970 it was thought to be ordered by Ringo Starr but this is not the case. It's a marmite car for some but I'd have it in a shot at the right price (if I had the money that is!).
