I;m not sure that it is an SPI! Would expect a H reg to have a carb, could be wrong but I'm sure one of the techie guru's will correct me if I'm wrong!

And as bungle said, it's a bit high in price!

could have any engine in that car if its been restored. Pop bonnet and take a look around.

- Check for rust all over. A panels, floors, sills, front wings and panel. subframes etc
- Rock engine to make sure its sturdy and not banging about or anything.
- Check clutch is good

There the last 2 things people normally check and rust is a always check on a mini.
