Derivatives at London show plus Cilla Black's Mini Margrave

A fine selection of Mini derivatives made it to the London Classic Car show, held last weekend in Excel, London. A well-known Broadspeed GT, SHADO Jeep and Unipower GT were seen in action on the indoor parade laps, while another coachbuilt Mini owned by a British celebrity came to the auction block. This was the 1977 Wood & Pickett Mini Margrave owned by singer Cilla Black from new. This car received a mild W&P treatment back in the day, with no deseaming of the body and keeping its standard 1000 engine, but does come with a full interior in black leather with walnut dashboard, fitting in with the piano-black exterior. The car was estimated to sell for between £30- and £40,000 but I don't think it sold. Let me know if you attended the sale or just happen to know more.

Interior in full black leather looks good, note it's an automatic. Question is: did it sell?

Engine is a no-frills 998cc and looks to both as new as bog standard
