Britt Ekland's Radford mini is the one mentioned on page 2 of this thread, the one Peter Sellers gave her for her birthday. It may have had the Radford hatch back conversion but I can't remember for sure. It had the usual Radford bits, rollup windows with what we call 'wind wings', W&P style wheel arch flares and the unique Radford dashboard treatment. When I saw it it was painted grey with spots of grey primer..

That was disproved by Britt herself last year on my Facebook page where she categorically denied that story, that Sellers had ever bought her a car and confirmed that the Radford showroom thing was just a publicity stunt.
