Originally a Mini Mayfair, this car was built in December 1997 to Japanese specification, which includes air conditioning. Instead of being exported it was purchased for a titled lady and sent to Wood & Pickett. In June 1998 the car was completed to full "Margrave" specification and is thought to be one of W&P's final conversions, the Mini was in regular use as a city car between 1998 and 2006. The current (second) owner had seen it on three occasions in 2006 parked in central London and on the third placed a business card and note on the windscreen. Six years later in 2012, the current owner received a phone call asking if he was still interested in purchasing the Mini. The vendor then viewed the car with Steve Burkinshaw (registrar of coachbuilt Minis for the MCR). After Steve had inspected the car and taken it for a short test drive, the current owner purchased it. From 2006 to 2012 the Mini had only been driven occasionally including to and from the MoT garage by the family's chauffeur and showed only 4,500 miles on the odometer (current reading 6,600). In addition to a comprehensive history file containing the usual expired tax discs, invoices/bills, old MoTs etc, this unique Mini also comes with the owner's handbooks; an indoor dust cover; a bespoke Connolly leather-bound London A-Z (original registration embossed onto the cover); and two copies of Mini World magazine of January 2016 featuring a seven-page article on the car. Also included in the sale are two sets of keys with alarm fobs; a CTEK battery charger; and the original rear light lenses and door mirrors.
