Id say mid to late 80s for the Duckhams oil can Mini.
2 new looking Mk1 Metros in the background - apparently unregistered would be pre 90s.
The Duckhams mini was at Mini 25 in Donnington I believe.

The new Metros are early facelift on TD tyres so 1985-7. The one neatest is Targa red and a City - I had a C plate one just the same albeit with a rusty wing at 3 years old. :roll: :lol:

Always liked the look of the white Mk1 Morris Mini driven by James Booth in 'Robbery'...

It's got a Morris Cooper grille but a non Cooper interior...

JOF129E was one of my old ones. It was a strange spec 998 Cooper supplied by BMC but had a Mini Minor MA2S4 VIN. It has a 120 mph speedo in the photo. It was possibly a police spec car, no idea. I sold it in 2000.
It had 998 Cooper brakes, engine and gearbox.

If I could get the VIN it'd be possible to see what Gaydon have in the records for it. The bonnet badge is Cooper as well.
