What Information Does A Vin Number Give You ?

A VIN on its own (or chassis number as it will be on a '72) won't give you the original colour, but you can use it to apply for a heritage certificate to find out how your car left the factory.

What is on them depends on what info they hold - the quality of records kept by BMC & BL varied wildly over the years.

Years built= Oct 1969-1974 (changed to XL2S1N sometime during 1974)
X= no significance
A= A series engine
2S= 2 door saloon
1= Round nose
XXXXXX= numbers start from at 101 for this model
A= built at Longbridge
You should also have a Commission plate that reads N20S.
So it's not a Mk3 Cooper S if that's what you were hoping for.
The Vin won't tell you what extras were fitted but they consist of a -static or automatic front seatbelts, radial tyres, a heated rear window, & face level (eyeball) vents.
Metal Green wasn't available in 1971/72 so either it's had a respray.... or it's a later Mini with a fake identity.
