eBay watch: 1988 Austin Mini Designer Mary Quant Edition

Quant

We have featured one of these in the past, but as they come up so infrequently – and we think they're a collectible of tomorrow – we're flagging up another Austin Mini Designer Mary Quant Edition.

This one dates from 1988, one of around 2,000 Mary Quant-designed Minis made at the time. But we suspect a good number have been scrapped since then. The ones that survive don't cost a fortune right now, but in time, they just might rise up in price.

The seller doesn't give lots away, but it looks like the outer Quant detail and that distinctive striped upholstery are all intact. Indeed, it's described as being in 'excellent condition throughout' with 'no rust, dents or scabs' you'll be pleased to know. Mileage isn't mentioned, drop them a line about that. Right now it's up for £1,800.

Update: Amazingly, another one has just gone up too, it's a bit cheaper as well. See details of that one here.
