The Fiat was actually named the Jolly     ...   Austin then built their variant to be called the 'Beach car"

Both to serve Beach duty built in VERY LIMITED numbers = and very unique...
 Probably the rarest variant ever factory built.

"Discover the surprising history of the Beach Car created by Austin: the Austin Mini Beach. With only 15 models built between 1961 and 1964, the sale of this 1964 Austin Mini Beach is likely to delight collectors of vintage cars."


Being so rare, you cant enjoy it= its a musuem piece if one were available



2014- one sold at auction for 181K,,,,   havn't seen any for sale really since then. 

I remember a thread someone found one in a scrap yard in Italy I believe... pulled all the strings to recover it + rebuilt it to amazing standard.

Great to look at, but other than that, what would you do with it?

I'm looking for your opinion on a mini jolly. For those that don't know what a jolly is, it doesn't have doors. You step in like a moke. It has a roof or hood.
