Can anyone tell how I can find out if our mini is a deluxe edition?

This is her. She does have deluxe trims. This was how she arrived. Looking a little different now we've started some work.

It's easy to tell the difference - flip it over, it will be stamped on the bottom.... or is that just the Dinky Toy Mini
1964 so it's either an Austin Mini, or a Super De Luxe & I don't know the difference! (Couldn't you sell it & buy a Mk3.... i know a lot about the Mk3).
I can see a lot of Super De Luxe bits in the pic but original parts could have been removed/swopped so if it was mine i'd apply for a Heritage Certificate https://www.britishm...ge-certificates
It should tell you which model it is, & it's a nice thing to have anyway when you own a genuine 60s Mini.

hehe we do have a 68 Mk2 as well, but we are selling it on as a project for someone else.
The V5 and rear badges state Austin Mini, we want to try to keep it as original as possible, it has the deluxe wheel trims, but if its not the deluxe we want to swap them out for the original caps.

Bumper over riders, full wheel trims, covered lower dash rail with chrome finishing strip, 3 clock oval binnacle, chrome petrol cap, opening rear quarter windows and chrome windscreen inserts. The basic model had none of these so hopefully youll have most of these as it looks as though yours is an SDL from the pic you posted. Hope this helps.
