Amazing find, congrats. All of the W&P details look intact, what a survivor!

Was it exported to the US (given the LHD)?

Its amazing how many coachbuilt Minis have survived very much intact. I think the fact that so many were exported to warmer climates and that the owners could hardly race or rally them definately helps. Cars like this just wouldn't survive so easily over here and if they did were often stripped for parts once rusted out!!

Nice car!

Colour scheme is a bit funky though......a very 70's shade of orange.
