just a follow up

the boot board rivet holes are present in the boot along rear seat

it looks like a mis read the first digit in the VIN number it is clearly a two instead of a 8


228926 that's what it looks like stamped on the triangle

so Al I know for sure its built April 1962
and the FE306116 is present
and the markings NMP on front skirt panel

Another possibility is it could be a Super, rather than a Cooper. They were built at Cowley and often had the NMP plate. They had boot boards and were made 61 to 62, so that would also fit.

the stamping a faint

I tried to take a picture the I phone

u can see better with a magnifying glass ,,, and of course the previous owner put the coil on that same triangle

the stamping was not square to the body panel

looking at the number now I can visualize the 2 instead of the 8 I originally thought

Austin or Morris Super, my Austin Super was built at Cowley.

What are the gear stick holes like? Does it have a remote gear stick, and does the hole look factory? Super's still had the standard 850 gear stick and hole.

It is almost certain to be a Super. The chassis number is seven digits following a large batch of export Cowley-built cars. They were all painted red/black. Sometimes the occasional chassis number slips through the records, so it is quite possible it is the case with this car, especially being so close to a batch of Supers and having boot-board brackets.

Dear Mr Biscoe

Both of these chassis numbers are right hand drive, 828926 is a Morris Mini Countryman with a prefix of M-AW4 and 228926 is an Austin Saloon with the prefix of A-A2S7.
