Yes, both of those listed above are offerings from JET. 
The Tiffany one isn't doing bad to start with. Already at $18,250 after just a few days. I can see this being a gift for someone's lady. Already wrapped. 

.
Simple recipe for Excitement:  Take 1 Classic Mini. Throw in 1590cc's of engine. Add 5 gears. A dash of 94 octane. A sprinkle of style inside and out. Toss in 1 MadMan and finally heat tires and pavement to taste. Recipe produces 1 Mini VTEC conversion and full satisfaction. Motor on!

Something is a miss somewhere maybe within the writeup. Maybe a typo? If you look on Jet Motors FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/jetmotorsmini/?ref=py_c  he has a few videos and some info about the car. He never mentions it as a 1975 year model and never mentions it as a Cooper'S'. He states that it is a MkVII (7), which is is from 1996-2000 (I believe?), SportsPack Mini. From there he did the cosmetic stuff to make it into a Tiffany & Co themed Mini and added and JCW kit to the engine. 
But looking at the VIN listed on the auction site and JET's FB video, it matches the sequence of a Mini from '74-'80, not from '90 onward. 
As for the Cooper'S' tagging, I'd say maybe that was put in there due to them beefing up the engine. Being that his shop is a licensed dealer and installer of the JCW kit and other parts, it could then be classified as a Cooper'S' with JCW's stamp of approval. Kind of like some how Mustang builder shops purchase Shelby licensing to be able to license their builds as continuation Shelbys even though they weren't Shelbys to begin with. 
Either way, it looks great and has the extra grunt using the proper parts and mechanics. Well sorted. 
What the actual details of the model year are, who knows. I guess Jeremy would know. I'm sure he wouldn't be purposely swindling someone, as it'll be his reputation and business on the line.

The fake Austin Cooper S looks like a late model Rover Mini that was reVINned to a 75 to get around the 25 year importation regulation.

They are in their annual collector car auction. Looks like they will both have more photos added in the near future. They just listed them today.
