A few reg numbers before the early Morris Mini 843 GFC in the photo above is....

1959 Morris Mini-Minor Reg: 620 GFC which is the 529th produced (15th oldest surviving Morris Mini) and is owned by a friend of mine who bought it at auction in 2013 for £6,900 and has since had it restored by my brother:-
