It's a 1971 so I believe that makes it a Mk III. Right? It has the 998cc engine.

What model of Inno is it?

 

"Everybody should own a MINI at some point, or you are incomplete as a human being" - James May

There are some unique parts to the Innocenti. Probably slightly more desirable than a British Mini. Buying checklist similar to any classic Mini. If possible, take a classic Mini person with you to look at the car before purchasing. Look for rust. "Surface rust" on a Mini is very rarely surface.
