Star car and What it’s worth

CAR: 69 ‘H’ Morris Mini-Cooper S Mk II
MILEAGE: 7,249 miles
WHERE SOLD: Xmas Classic Extravaganza at BCA Blackbushe
HOW MUCH: £11,775
% OF CAP: 1,177.5% vs list (circa £1,000 on the road)
BACKGROUND: Having been originally owned by a felon with connections to the Kray Gang, the car was impounded by police early in its life for some considerable time before being auctioned. A period of secure garaging followed until 18 months ago, when the car was recommissioned and MoT’d for the first time. The mileage recorded at the MoT was just 6,922 and today the car is showing 7,249 miles. The vehicle is finished in Snowberry white with white roof (apparently to be inconspicuous!) and has black trim and factory fitted reclining seats. Documents supplied included a V5 document, original logbook and MoT certificates.
