It’s now badged as an “Austin Cooper” and features alloy flip-top fuel filler, tinted side rear and back glass and chrome bullet racing mirrors.The interior is upgraded as well, with reclining sport seats, a sport steering wheel, a 130-mph Cooper “S” speedo and a tachometer,
The steering is Right-Hand-Drive (RHD), (but all Minis come with the holes and mountings to put the steering wheel on either side, if you must.)

For the doors, Mk2’s share the same unique doors as the Mk1 models, featuring external door hinges and the cool, quirky sliding windows, a feature that ended after the 1969 Mk2 model year. (Mk3 models started in 1970 and feature internal door hinges and roll-up windows.) The Mk2 grilles are a bit larger than the Mk1 “mustache” grilles and the taillights became larger and rectangular, with red-and-amber lenses.
