I just bought this mini that has been sitting for forty years as it was going to be powered by a aircraft starter motor but after removing the motor the project was stalled. I was told it was a 64 850 but it has a fe number 53579 and many early parts but no serial tag. I hope to redo it as a fun driver and would really like to know what year it is. Any info would be great.

That's a very early car Mike.
My guess is '59 or '60. small drain holes on the roof and no recess for the rear glass...

Looks like a great project. Do you have any more photos of the interior and under the bonnet?
