I didn’t think the Mk2 was offered for sale in USA, with the Mk1 as the end of the line in Oct 67 due to the emissions/safety regs that came into force for the 1968 model year.

I guess it could be a European market car that was imported privately to Florida at a later date. A heritage cert might provide a more definitive identification.

As with everything from ‘Bobby bullshit’ best to judge the car on the photos, not the description :)



Mk2 minis were offered for sale in the USA. Mine was built December 5 1967,despatched January 8 1968.

I remember seeing them for sale at the dealers when new.

"the factory never exported to the U.S. anything but the Mk Is and pre-1968 built Mk IIs."
https://www.minimania.com/Mini_Identification_1807

"Between 1960 and 1967, BMC exported about 10,000 left-hand drive BMC Minis to the United States.
The Mini was withdrawn from the American market in 1968 because it could not meet newer U.S. safety regulations and emission standards."

I stand corrected. Guess they slipped as many ‘1967 built’ through as they could :)
