Really gutted for you mate. Glad the insurance has paid out.
How did it get stolen? Was it garaged, on a drive or out and about at the time?

It might be worth reaching out to the Australian / Japanese Mini clubs? Sign up and post on their boards?

It was parked at the back of my parents house on a hardstanding, their house is in the middle of about 30 houses so it was quite a long way up a rough back lane, you had to go up the lane and actually look in to their back garden to see where it was so someone must have been stalking me to find it.

I will have a look on club australian / japanese mini clubs to see if it has gone abroad but I think it might have been broken up and all parts sold as spares because it wasn't as good as it looked on the outside, I had it 9 years and it was due some restoration work and had not managed to pass an mot for about the last 5 years due to welding etc that was needed each year.

also just noticed that Msmith3327 who put this on for me said it was a cooper but it is actually an austin mini so it might be passed off as a cooper to some unsuspecting person.

Saw this on my local forum so thought i should spread the word, but this looks suspiciously similar:
