Dick Bursi, responsible for the Styling Department of BMC, then prepared a model of the winning car. This unique example was directly given by Alec Issigonis, the genius behind the Mini, to the present owner, a well known photo-journalist. Professionally constructed to pattern-makers standards of resin and wood with fabricated chrome-plated bright-work, bumpers and lamps etc. It measures 75cm long by 35cm wide and 31cm high (scale1:4) and is in excellent condition.
