The plate matches the engraving on the glass and is a valid UK plate - what's the problem, it's a solid 1975 vehicle ?

I'm curious what you mean by a '99 registration.  Do you mean a tax disc ?

Not at all...no one mentioned your car was from CA.

I just showed pics of the same year car as yours so you knew what badges were on the hood and trunk lid.
I mentioned CA spec just in case our cars were badged differently.....ie: Leyland badge on front instead of MINI

No it is a UK built and afaik or can see a UK spec Mini.
A few of the posters on your thread are from Canada, when you are on the world wide web you reach out to everyone .

Kinda a weird location for the fusebox, considering just above it is the bracket for the later washer fluid bottle.

I have the paper work, this car was built in the UK, sold in the Uk and lastly registered there. Still has a 199 registration in the window and the plate on the car, going to leave them there, i think it adds to the look

All of the Canadian Minis were built in England, not Canada.

Stock 1970's Minis did not have anything covering the spare tire.
Battery box cover was a cardboard fiber  material.
Local laws require the spare tire to be held down.

This is a UK build Mini so im guessing that the stock location is the fender. I actually still have the battery cover but its sadly ripped in half.
