I've seen photographs of the Mini reported to be the missing Lennon car, and if it ever was it isn't now.  

Hideous.

The fourth car in the Abbey Road display was Cilla Black's 1970s W&P car.

The Mini parade on Sunday was a bit more spirited than intended - the Safety Car driver took off like a scalded cat and we caught the back of the pack up after one lap !

Just three of them. The where about's of John's Mini is unknown but it is still in the UK and is sorned (off the road but reported annually).
Supposedly that is George's Mini which is still owned by his widowed wife Olivia.

If in doubt, flat out. Colin Mc Rae MBE 1968-2007.

I yanked the pic from Reddit.

 Yes = at Goodwood.

As part of a display celebrating the iconic British hatchback’s 60 years of manufacturing, coachbuilt Mini Coopers previously owned by Beatles Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr will feature. In 1966, at the height of the Beatles fame, the band’s manager, Brian Epstein, gifted each member these Minis, customised by coachbuilders Radford and Hooper to suit their individual requirements. While Ringo’s hatchback was designed to accommodate his drum kit, George’s featured a ‘Tantric’ colour scheme.

Car engines make CO2 and trees absorb CO2. By running your engine you're feeding a tree and helping the environment.
