Must have been an anti climax after the 1966 Gulf...

I guess that’s motorsport. My folks went all the way up to Scotland once to see Richard in the Avenger and they didn’t get past the first stage.

Silver gulls, also known as "chip hawks", consuming their natural diet.

Its an Aussie car with the wind-up windows, most likely a 998 Deluxe built between '65 and '69. I don't recognise the location, maybe one of Sydney's eastern suburbs, could even be NZ.

The gap between the wheel and the upper wing arch is that acceptable? With the alignment being correct?

Strange specification isn't it. Mk2 boot badges, "S" wheels and Cooper exhaust but single tank. Mk1 rear lights (and rear 'screen?) but lack of bumper corner bars suggest Mk2 :(
I assume it is a BMC factory shot and the LHD suggests an export spec. of some sort but it's a strange one. Oxford registration.
Just noticed the lack of body seams. It isn't one of those glassfibre Minis is it??
