Engine number 4863. Mine was a December '69, 5544. It's clearly a BIG restoration. To be honest, knowing from experience just how finger trapping, awkward and marginally efficient it was in practice, I left the rad cowling off mine too. If the MCR Cooper and S registrars get on board, the approx chassis number start point for Mk3 colours and therefore the actual totals for the Cooper and S should be known quite quickly

Nick, the MK2 Cooper Reg is a regular poster on here, as is the MK3 reg.

I think, some very early cars had coloured interiors for a mk2. That said is sounds like it could be mini thou if it's got a remote in it?

Mini thou. Short for thousand cc, a plain old 998cc mini. Came in with the mk2 and definitely came in red on red with a remote gearbox
