Wood & Pickett Mini at auction

Now this could be a nice Christmas present. A fully restored 1969 Wood & Pickett Mini Margrave, originally based on a Mk2 Cooper 'S' and in a lovely deep blue colour, too. It is said to have been sold through Stewart & Ardern and has been owned from 1973-on by a man in the music trade. He supposedly transported people from the Small Faces and Humble Pie in it, while it was later sold to a chap of Moody Blues and later Wings fame. No suprise then that it comes with an 8-track stereo system with 16 tapes. Oh, and a Rolls Royce cigarette lighter. It's estimated to make £27,500-35,000 and will be auctioned on 18 December. See the auctioneers full description here
