A very rare sale indeed. Originally Sammy was built to be a character in a children's story series called The Adventures of Sammy Siren.

a. He had to keep his fully opening doors. b. Roof still in place. c. Windows that work. A long and difficult engineering project... very successful.

The idea was to make a shorty that looked as if this was how he came from the Austin factory in 1970. He was sprayed pure white to carry magnetic logos to disguise him as a tiny police car.

The clubman front was replaced with a fibreglass flip front with the grill changed to have a smile on his face. Apart from that he is a standard engined car with the original gearbox. Usable in any traffic and in all weathers. I drove him from Diss to Norwich last week, at night in hammering rain. No problems, no leaks, cruised the southern bypass at a steady 60.

Sammy is registered as a 'historic' car... so his road tax is free. Comprehensive insurance cost me £85 per year (with 3000 mile limit) and a value of £3500 which could be increased to £4000 for no extra charge. T & T for a full year, ready to drive away. He could be fantastic as a publicity vehicle, show piece (although not concours), or simply as a unique christmas present for a petrolhead youngster.

He has to be sold as I'm too old, my left knee is clapped out and the stories never found a publisher. Plus I have an overwhelming desire for a Robin Hood kit car. An questions I can be found on 07962 491951 (Norwich)

I can accept cash (I'm nice like that) Or Paypal. But if you want to use a cheque it will have to clear first. If the reserve isn't met then I'll take him to the National Mini Day on Sept 11th. So tyre kickers and daft offerers needn't bother.  If you want to be part of my favoured buyers list send me a email.  Good Luck   Mike
