I have the same one. The jack eventually sprung a leak but was easy to swap out with a quality name brand one.

It's likely a wood load floor van with the BMC rear seat kit. These were made for export only to avoid import taxes on personal vehicles that often didn't exist for commercial vehicles in many countries. This one was shipped to the Canary Islands so that makes sense. I have seen several in the U.S., all I believe imported from South America. This is the first one I've seen that had the back seat but didn't have aftermarket side windows. The van body has a different style of horizontal support running front to back compared to an estate, which is designed for sliding windows. The vertical reinforcing post in the same area is unique to vans but is often cut when windows are installed.

Depends on a lot of variables year, condition, running, engine size etc. Also depends if the car is a real Cooper or S model or just a basic Mini.
On the low end $5k will buy you a runner needing work but the average ones sell in the $8k to $15k range.
Cooper's and S's bring a lot more money up to $40k and then some depending on the year and the car.

Dave, I saw your post on Facebook about VIN plates but couldn't reply.

I got both a vin plate and body number tag from Mini Mail. Excellent quality and I'm sure Tim would ship it to you.
