225 Austin Seven (rare edition)

70 GBP
This may look like a normal 225 in a darker red shade with shaped wheels but it is a slightly unusual edition. It has fixed shaped wheels but what I list as a type 1c base which usually has free-spinning wheels. I have written a lot about the different types of body and base for the Minis and you can read more and see some illustrations at this link.

The model itself is in good condition, with little damage to the paintwork, just the usual signs of wear along raised edges. the suspension is sound and screens clean with just a small crack in the front screen. The wheels are shiny and bright and base very clean.

I believe this is quite a scarce version. The three others that I have in stock have free spinning wheels either with this 1c base or with type 2 bases which have a different display of text.
