The Morris Mini-Minor had a long life, appearing first in 1960 and always in a shade of pale blue until it is replaced by a dark maroon edition in 1968, which lasted several more years until it gets replaced by a late Whizzwheels version in orange and shades of mid-blue in 1972. As a result there are really masses of different models to look for and some collectors have found just the minis more than enough to try and complete!

This is from around 1965 with its free spinning wheels and type 2b chassis. A little later it would have had cast wheels and/or a different body casting. So, ubiquitous as it may seem at first glance, this particular combination of features is not that common. 

It is in good condition with a few chips and wear to the paintwork but the windows are clear and undamaged. The wheels are nice a shiny and the suspension, as with all of these models, is sound.
