What can I say. This is a wrecked example of a bastardised model. The old Mini was wonderful, in every one of its many guises. This is what happens when you add Whizzwheels, reduce production standards and use poor quality paints. Might not be so bad if it were less bashed up, but honestly I can't bring myself to pay anything for one of these. This cost 2.50 which was plenty.

The old 226 Mini-Minor was changed to Whizzwheels and renumbered 204 in 1972. It remained in the range for another year. There are a number of variations for a model which was produced for such a brief time. you will see it in dark blue, deep blue, metallic blue and metallic blue with a black roof. It is also orange or orange with a black roof. The orange car is known with either red or yellow seats. Despite my low opinion of this car it is expensive and scarce - presumably because not many were sold and because of the wide range of finishes available each one would have been sold only in small quantities. All versions are highly priced but the best ones are deep blue or orange with a red interior.
