Morris Mini Cooper - 'As driven by Paul McCartney'
Product Code: CC82284K
Paul McCartney, Steve McQueen, Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan... the list is almost endless. Iconic names of the era who all drove this impressive vehicle, built primarily for a country with an oil shortage following the Suez crisis of 1956.
However, the celebrity trend of high cost modifications and beautiful exterior finishing has ensured that the Mini remains a much loved representation of all things great about Britain during the swinging sixties.GGJ 382C was modified by legendary coachbuilder Radford and, at the request of McCartney, finished the car in Aston Martin California Sage Green Metallic.
The interior was trimmed in black leather and had a Webasto-style fold back canvas roof, a popular extra at the time. In 1967 the car was taken out for a drive to Primrose Hill where a strange man was seen wandering around. This was later the inspiration for the song ‘The Fool on the Hill’.
