I'm guessing this didn't sell - I looked at the hammer prices for the event and the Mini was not listed...

Did not sell this time. (Also featured in the April 2007 issue of MiniWorld)
According to the Mini Cooper Register this Radford Mini Cooper was first owned by Beatle Geoge Harrison and presented to his then girlfriend and later wife, the model Patti Boyd. Darryl Plumridge bought the car in 1987 and restored it some years ago but it has remained unused ever since.

The hammer went down at £22K which equates to £26K including buyers premium for this other unrestored 'barn find' Radford Mini Cooper above in 2013. Sounds like alot of money but remember it's a Radford, it's mostly complete, not in that bad a shape and has great provenance going back to original owner Beatle George's brother Peter Harrison, via Beatle Manager Brian Epstein's company complete with it's history and original 60's photos.
By the time restoration is complete it will be in a similar price range to the fully restored 'Patti Boyd' Radford but like all these type of cars the prices are really achieved when at least two wealthy buyers desire the car or see it as a good long term investment. Many classic cars are now seen as investments with no capital gains tax payable on any profits made.
