Expect to pay over £1000! Wow! Bet you could add an extra 0 onto that now, seeing as it's the oldest Mini. So what's all this about 621 AOK? Not the oldest...?
i noticed this when i watched it, a mini like this would fetch a couple of pennies more than a grand. but if he puts it up for sale as that then ill take it!

Lot 320: Morris 1959 MiniMinor Registration Number: 434 NWL Chassis Number: M/A2S4/D/98 Engine Number: 3MB.U.H5334 E4700-5700 One of the oldest known surviving examples of the legendary Mini, and with a particularly interesting history.
Auction House: Sotheby's
Auction Location: United Kingdom
Auction Date: 1999
Description: Morris 1959 MiniMinor Registration Number: 434 NWL Chassis Number: M/A2S4/D/98 Engine Number: 3MB.U.H5334 E4700-5700 One of the oldest known surviving examples of the legendary Mini, and with a particularly interesting history. This 1959 Mini, the 40th Morris Mini-Minor built, was completed on May 25th to export de-luxe left hand drive specification. Sold to Bernard Ferriman, in 1962, the Mini remained in the same ownership until acquired at auction in 1985 by Penta Reading, who thoroughly restored the two-door saloon. Auctioned by Sotheby's in 1987, the car was bought by Today newspaper and featured as a competition prize in 1988 The winners formerly exhibited their prize at a motor museum (since closed) and have carefully maintained and garaged the saloon, painted in Old English White. A V5 registration document, M.o.T certificate and a trace certificate from British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, (who estimate that the Mini is among the ten oldest surviving), are included.
The car came off the production line at Cowley on 20th May 1959 bearing chassis number 140. It was LHD and was allocated to the experimental dept for proving tests and re-allocated with another number. After a couple of years when they had finished with it it was converted to RHD and sold to Bernard Ferriman who worked for BMC. It was then re-allocated yet another chassis number 98. This re-allocation of numbers occured with a few cars that were plucked off the line for testing and then subsiquently sold off 2nd hand to employees. ( They went backwards from 101 ).

But did any of the prototypes you see in the Mini Books survive?
