341 Mini Marcos GT850 with original box

60 GBP

One of the short-lived Golden Jacks series, this Mini Marcos in deep metallic red is in excellent condition and has its original box too.

That is unusual as the boxes were fiddly and tended to get destroyed as the cars came out. The cars were almost never put back in them so they just got thrown away or crushed somewhere.

The box for this one has lost most of the acetate but otherwise is very good, solid and virtually unmarked -a really nice example. The car has three or four chunks of that metallic paint missing but they’re in places not immediately obvious and the car actually looks brilliant.

This metallic paint seems to chip so easily on all the models it was used on.
