Right well I looked at another tonight and well it needed a lot of work it was good to say the least in my personal opinion. Where the front subframe mounts to the floor it seemed that the mounts had come through the floor or was starting to come through the floor. It had been repaired in multiple areas and was the best of repair jobs and the sill had cracked quiet badly on the drivers side, the best way to describe is that it seemed like it had been in a bump and been repaired badly, so I walked away so I'm still looking guys

Alex - it seems to vary depending on who filled in the original form. Mine is registered as make "Mini" and model "Marcos".

D&H Mk IV 8313, KGV 215V (aka George) - 75,000 miles and counting since restoration in 2011.

It's not just that. Quite a lot of them were built without telling the predecessors of the DVLA (council licensing departments), so they kept the original registration as Austin, Morris, BMC, Mini, etc. Where the conversion was declared they were registered either new or with the donor registration mark but as Marcos, Mini Marcos, Mini-Marcos, etc. The authorities use marque and make indiscriminately so although the forms all say "make" in practice D&H Mk.IVs tend to be registered as Mini Marcos and not D&H Fibreglass Techniques. However I did have a Jem registered as a Fellpoint.

My Mini Jem V5C shows the Chassis number as RS.M2.1091 and the make is registered simply as a Jem.

It's definitely a mini Marcos body and looks like exactly what you described originally.
