| Description

The Austin Seven modelled was built at Longbridge on April 11th 1960 as a special order for Irene Waite, née Austin, eldest daughter of Lord Herbert Austin. It was fitted with a fresh-air heater, which at that time was for export market orders only. On April 28th it was sent to another section of the BMC empire, coachbuilder Vanden Plas in Kingsbury to be painted metallic blue over the original white, trimmed in VM3230 grey hide and Evlan Birstall VDP C2 grey carpet. This was done to match the Vanden Plas Princess IV DS7 A135 Limousine owned by Irene's husband, Arthur Waite, a BMC director who'd joined his father-in-law's company after the Great War.

A unique Mini

It is good to see that in this model Corgi have researched and modelled a genuine Mini that cannot be found in any other model manufacturers catalogues. The colour is quite different and presents the uniqueness of this Mini very well making it stand out in any Mini collection. The finish is good and the detailing fine and accurate. When considering the limited quantity production run, this model represents good value for money being priced well below £30.

Irene austin mini

Not a great model. A price hike, yet last year's model.Austin script on boot list is barely readable and why the old headlights with just a chrome effect disc. Poor value.
