What is a super, i thought they looked like a cooper with brocade inertior, two tone paint but with all 850 mechanicals? I also thought they had auxillary temp and oil pressure gauges?

So, is this a super?

it doesn't appear to have any of the unique parts that would be fitted to a super..............

It's too old to be a Super anyway, just misdescribed it from the looks of it.

Looks like a delux to me. I wonder what the chassis plate prefix is.

Common mistake, seen a few described as a Super. No biggy.
