Do you still have the Innocenti parts for sale? I am looking for multiple parts. I am trying to restore my Mini so I can get it back on the road. Most of the parts I am missing are gauges. What engine do you have in the car?

thanks 

Jonathan

I guess I didn't read it back then either. I still have the 73 Inno 1001 Cooper project for sale. I'm about ready
to sell it off as parts. I have located a 998 Cooper power unit for it. I also have a 62 997 Cooper project mostly
complete with a very poor body but has a proper title and Heritage cert. Missing front sub frame and seats. I'm
ready to move some of my projects along. As soon as I sort out my Dodge P/U I'm ready to deliver. I have a
large collection of mini parts engines, trannys, suspension and brakes. Steve (CTR)

Ah... thanks for the clarification. I didn't read the 2 year old parts of the thread.

That is strange... I have a German-spec Mini Mayfair (mid 1980's) that does have rear vent windows,
Quarterlight vents in the front of the doors, not the rear windows.

I used to have a 1974 Inno 1300 export, it has vent windows.

The interior is wrong besides the dash and ashtray, unless they offered multiple trim levels which is quite possible. I also cant see from these pictures but the Inno had a different dome light and had rear grab handles above the rear passengers heads. 
~ heater controls, Seats, Shift knob, Steering wheel, Door panels, Door trim, carpet are all incorrect

Exterior is a mix match for sure... Front wing markers,  and headlight rings are correct but its missing alot of stuff 
~ Rear taillight lenses are incorrect (should say "made in italy" at the bottom of the amber section and different markings placement) 
~ Trunk is wrong 
~ Front signal lenses are wrong, should be clear glass similar to Mk1 but they have thicker chrome rings like the headlights
~ No vent windows 

Engine / Engine bay: The engine is correct in been an 11 bolt, fuse box and the booster are correct. Its odd they removed the heater..

BC, is the Inno you are working on a Mk3 Cooper ( 5 clock dash ) or a 13 Export ( 6 clock dash ) one. I have a Mk 3 Inno Cooper without a title. It has been stripped to bare shell and all parts are with it except disc brakes, sub frames, power unit and vent window doors. With dad selling the home place I'm in storage trouble. Will be sending two maybe three cars to the crusher today. A 62 AH Sprite ( sq. body side curtain post bug eye and a 79 MG Midget. I'd like to sell the Inno. Steve (CTR)

Grille is wrong, Seats are inverted drivers and passengers seat need to be swapped over. The handle should be on the outside. The boot lid is wrong .
Doors panels look homemade and not all innos had vent windows...

Some of the stuff you wouldn't bother swapping from a good donor.

The dash/electrics are the most difficult to swap (don't ask how I know) so, as you say, probably started as an Inno but I doubt the 1976 as the year of birth - and yes I am well aware of the Vinny shuffle - I just wish people wouldn't lie when they sell these cars we suffer enough of that with "genuine" 1976 Mk1 Cooper S's still being offered to the unknowing.

Lots of Inno (1300 Export) bits there, including the dash which is correct but the rest, doors etc could have come from just about anywhere - and probably did. Engine is nice but also incorrect (single carb), the list goes on.

He had this on eBay a while back and I corresponded with him on the car - until I advised that it was not a real Innocenti at which point he vanished off the face of the earth.

Nice Mini but not (ever) a genuine Inno.
