On the front cover of the 1997 Vanguards catalogue appears a selection of Minis: some in white with white roofs, more in white with black roofs, and a single yellow model. The 50 white models (25 with white roof; 25 with black roof) were presented the Lledo trade launch of the 1997 range. As a result came requests for a model of the yellow Mini.
This has been produced as a special limited edition, marketed as the 1997 Vanguards Catalouge Edition. In yellow, the Mini looks very pleasing.
