MINI-COOPER

WITH DE-LUXE WICKERWORK TRIM

The 'Wicker Mini' was a movie tie-in that was never really talked about as such as far as I can remember. It was actually a model of Peter Sellers' own Radford Mini De-Ville as featured in the first Pink Panther film - A Shot in the Dark. I'm planning a series of themed photo shoots for the website - 'unintended film stars' could be a good title with this one from Pink Panther, the Merc 600 from Witches of Eastwick, the Adams Probe from Clockwork Orange... what else?

This rather lovely little Mini-Cooper was introduced in November 1965 and remained in the range until 1969. It was always black with a red roof and wicker panelling. These do tend to be valued quite highly so be prepared to spend out for one.
