I think she also had a later W&P Mini as seen in this old TMF thread:-

Like most of us Britt Eckland owned more than one Mini in her lifetime.

The clip is her 1965 Mk1 Circassian Blue 1275 Cooper S Mini De Ville GT Hatchback at Radfords launch of the GT range on 7th Oct 1965.

Anyone know what happened to this one?

 

Just discovered: stolen, not recovered -fairly soon after being purchased.... & supposedly buried under Thornton Heath!

Seems like she didn't have very good luck keeping Radford Mini's.

This period Pathe 1966 'Come to London' film also includes the colour footage of Britt Ekland's Birthday cake revealing a Radford Mini....
