The mini in the ad is smoke gray and has a full lower front panel while

the other one looks light blue and has those larger and later license plate mounts.

Thanks Jay Weinstein. I hadn't looked closely enough. I have pics of other beach cars including the Fiesta Yellow one belonging to Dave Freidl in Montreal. I know that Chuck Heleker was trying to find how many have survived in N America.
