It is very difficult to get correct information elsewhere, I have got more answers from you guys then anywhere else online. BMIHT haven't got a clue about what they are doing, if you have a different chassis number position then that of a standard car. There must be hundreds of cars out there without much information and sadly they are never going to get back on the road.

Richard Bacchuss at BMHIT has very recently been made aware of the positioning of the stamped chassis number on the bracket of some Minis. May be an idea to contact them again.

This all seems rather odd. To get a heritage certificate you just need to quote the chassis number along with make and model (and pay them of course). No requirement for you to send any proof of your number. Just add the prefix MA2S4 to the number you have found on the car, apply for the certificate and job done.

I have been emailing Richard on this subject and I made him aware of the bracket issue. The records for all Mini's have been away getting digitised and the early numbers (upto 120,000) have only just got back, having been waiting since November. He didn't think that the number on the bracket was the chassis number, so wouldn't issue a certificate for it. I am hopefully going to convince him after all the positive info I have received for you guys

Richard spoke to me a couple of days ago regarding this subject. He is now aware. You should not have any problems now.

This is a very interesting subject...…
So here is my question (as I'm in a similar position), once a Heritage certificate has arrived, how can you find out the original reg number? or do you get issued an age related plate?
I have 2 early race cars (need a lot of work) one has a Vin but no Reg number, the other has a Reg number but no Vin....
Great advice/help so far.... :D

That is exactly what I have to do! Having worked on a 900 hour restoration so far, to be told no chassis plate number, then the identity is lost.

If I do get a heritage certificate then the next stage is V5 registration. Sending off the V765 (if you can find the reg number somewhere) or apply for an aged related number. This can only be done via a mini club and the car has to be complete, many, many more hours of work. Never really knowing that it will be excepted.
