Found these three at a classic car show in up state New York.
The S was purchased new from Casino. The clubman was an import from NZ.
And the blue ute is an Aussie Commodore.

The yellow car was imported to the US in 2003. Here it is for sale after a few changes of ownership. http://www.miniguy.com/vehicles/yellow69cooper1275s/

I always say, "It's a small world when it comes to these small cars!"

My friend found it in Australia, then I imported it to Southern California in 2003.

First sale went to Seattle, Washington.

In 2008, I sent it to a new home in Massachusetts.

in 2015, I found a new home for it in upstate New York.

The new owner said it's a keeper!

Glad to see he's taking it to shows so everyone in his area can appreciate it too!

I recently bought back an Australian Cooper S that I imported and sold in 2004. It's a keeper too!

Thanks!

Resprayed in Daffodil Yellow when it was reshelled. Details are in the Mini Magic Mag. I think he used a 71 Mini K body (edit - Garry used a 71S body) to put his 69 S bits on.

I have a set of all issues. My No 4 has a newsagents date on the sticker, 05/99. So 1998 sounds about right.
