Gerald Ronson purchased a few other Margraves. The other surviving car is a metallic brown GT. He bought it at the Earls Court Motor Show when it was that years show car. Same car is featured in that lovely BBC archive Blue Peter clip. Luckily it has a copy of it’s Park Royal “show car” build sheet & importantly still has it’s 12” SL mag wheels, they’re a hard find these days. Only seem to see 10” SL’s on eBay.

Photo taken in 1970 by Tony Hall inside Wood & Pickett at Park Royal, West London

1969. Wood & Pickett, Mini Cooper - Tony Hall
"I drive over to Wood & Pickett with Lionel Hawkes in May 1969 to have a look around the workshops. In 1968 Wood & Pickett fitted a tinted rear window into my Mini Cooper. I had tinted perspex windows cut to size for the side windows by another company just up the road from Hammersmith Palais, in Shepherd's Bush Road, before driving to Rome with Roger Tidd. Here we are being shown how the body and engine of 'Margrave' Mini Cooper is re-built."
