Description
 
1963 Morris Mini Minor Penny Car VIN: MA2S4S181287 --Penny Car made for The Beatles Penny Lane --4,000 British pennies grouted to exterior (approximate weight: 200 pounds/91 kg) --Woman in England placed pennies on car from coins her father collected --Pennies range in year from 1860 to 1969 --Four-speed manual transmission --Right-hand drive A penny saved is a penny earned, and MotoeXotica Classic Cars wants to earn your attention with this extremely rare and unique 1963 Morris Mini Minor Penny Car. These Penny Cars were made to commemorate and promote The Beatles Penny Lane track. Beatles lead singer Paul McCartney had two of these Morris Penny Cars commissioned for himself. One is at Cornish Goldsmiths in Cornwall, England, and the other is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in San Francisco. The pennies were placed on a 1963 Morris Mini Minor, an economy car manufactured primarily in Oxford, England from 1948 to 1971. More than 1 million Minis were produced in that timeframe. A woman in England assembled this penny car when her father, a professional panhandler, left her 4,000 coins he had collected and received. With a 63 Morris Minor in hand, she recreated a promotional tool and icon from the late 60s. This was a hand-crafted penny car with years of Spare some change? going into the car. Collecting these coins is a feat that even numismatists would be proud of. The earliest coin we can find on this car is 1860, and the latest is 1969! Uncirculated coins from the 1860s can fetch upward of 6,000 British Pounds. Coins depicting British royalty from George IV to Queen Elizabeth II adorn this English auto, almost like the Royal family is looking out for the driver. Even with the approximate estimated additional weight of 200 pounds (91 kg), this car still handles well. Though the horn is inoperable and the emergency brake handle does not engage, the original gauges are still functioning on this 40-year-old import. This car has a four-speed manual transmission and is a right-hand drive. This classic was created many decades ago and looks incredible. It does show some well-earned signs of age and is not perfect. There is a dent in the front headlight and a few of the pennies are missing here and there, but that does not take away from the uniqueness of this find. The car starts with ease and rides and drives nicely. The pictures will help tell a story as the copper and bronze glisten in the sunlight. This car is a once-in-a-lifetime buy, even for a coin collector or someone who wants a conversation piece for their business. VIN is MA2S4S181287. Penny-pinching never seemed so fun! GET OUT AND DRIVE!
