Sutcliffe Minx 1980 001

Sutcliffe Minx from 1980. As you can see it uses the same hull pressings from the pre -war hulls and also uses the windscreen used for the Tiger speedboat. The box is the same box as used for the Hawk with a factory applied green label printed 'Minx' on both ends. This is a mint example with a mint box. The key is in the original paper bag. A lovely example. SOLD
