Scoop's fascinating comments about the various UFO cars that have survived got me thing about other real cars which have featured in Gerry Anderson productions.
Having recently looked into one of his more obscure creations, Candy and Andy, it seemed right to look at the vehicle in it.
The comic includes a mini. A multi-coloured striped mini called, yes, Stripey.
The 'adults' of the comic, Mr and Mrs Bearanda, drove the mini to and fro, receiving help from real children and the dolls Candy and Andy as shown on this comic cover:
Dinky released a toy version of the vehicle, Stripey, the Magic Mini, complete with plastic figures and a card Candy toy shop front.
But what happened to the actual car shown above?
Was it scrapped? Re-painted? Sold on?
Does anyone know the fate of Stripey the painted mini?
