Didn't you get a title with it?

I doubt if it is an Australian S with a factory LHD vin number.
Also didn't the Australian S's have roll up windows with a vent window too?

Can't tell from the pictures whether it has a Cooper S motor. Cooper S motor has extra studs on the ends of the head. Post a close up picture of the motor.

Nice, still a bit more tlc to finish it off.  Start with the bling like the correct grille. that looks like a Benelite that was cut . Definitely worth hanging on to and you should order the BMHT certificate to see what
the donor car was.

where are you located?  Lots of clubs and enthusiast members who can help you sort out any issues.  If you're thinking about selling, put me at the top of the list please.

A 65 would have a small handle that turns down, no door recesses.
