The article is referring to Peter Smith :

“Peter has had over 30 Minis over the years, but many of them have since been moved on with only his very favourite models making the grade.”

Doesn’t look like some of these Liverpool Cooper Ss were actually Ss?

There’s a few pictures like this one Dave that show no right hand tank and iffy badges on those late Mk1s.

Does it not have 3 1/2 inch wheels which won’t fit other minis?

Haven't seen the dodgy badges pics Pete but is it feasible that they are really old stock cars, hence the lack of RH tank? HOY wasn't registered until Nov 66, so only two months off being on an E plate, but was built March 65. Maybe the police bought a few like that on the cheap and had the roofs (or is that rooves) painted white ??

Not a Mini, but .............

One of a pair. Used as a 'wide load' escort vehicle in Dunbartonshire. Pic borrowed from Facechat.
