That QP is mega rare being one of just seven RHD examples built out of 779 made. All seven still exist, although one of them is currently a basket case awaiting a new (very brave) owner. Any idea when and where that pic was taken Stu...?

Laurence Harvey drove a LHD one in the 1965 film 'Life At The Top'...

Yes Broadway Hotel, Broadway. I would guess early 1970's. The Mini comes up on DVLA as Blue, not taxed since the late 1980's. Someone must have wanted the Cooper look but was on a budget.

And the photoshopped version which often comes up in image searches, with a much later shot of George Harrison's restored Radford dropped in...

We've seen these well known 'pop art' photos before but here's some background to them : the pop art graphics were designed and applied by Danae Brook and the photos were taken in Carlyle Square, Chelsea on 24th March 1966 by Doreen Spooner, the car, a 997 Morris Cooper was for sale locally for £385 at the time...
