eBay watch: Fully restored Austin Mini Designer Mary Quant Edition

Quant1

Yes, I know we featured one of these a short while back, but that was a model in need of full restoration. This Austin Mini Designer Mary Quant Edition has been full restored and is ready to go.

For the uninitiated, around 2,000 of these Mary Quant-designed Minis were made, a good number no doubt rusting away since the 1980s, so it's very much a case of future collectible we reckon. This one looks a real gem too.

According to the seller, this one has never been on the road since being fully restored, that restoration including pretty much everything, from a replacement badge on the front, new chrome and a complete going over for the mechanics through to spare alloy wheels and Sony three-way speakers. I think you can say nothing has been left to chance. Just over 71,000 on the clock too, which isn't bad.

Lots of images on the listing page, with a price right now at just £112.
