A = Austin (other than Cooper and S)
C = Austin Cooper or Austin Cooper S
K = Morris Cooper or Cooper S
R = Riley
W = Wolseley
Second position (also “A” in the above example):
= A series engine. Any standard Mini engine for the period:
970cc Cooper S
998cc Cooper and non-Cooper
1071cc Cooper S
1275cc Cooper S
Third position(s) (“2S” in the above example):
= Body type:
2S = 2-door saloon/sedan. Caution: bureaucratic bungles often interpret this as 25 (twenty-five)
B = Moke (“Buckboard”!)
U = Pick-up. Caution: U and V can be mistaken one for the other.
V = Panel van. Caution: U and V can be mistaken one for the other.
W = Estate (with or without wood). Officially. “Dual-purpose”
Fourth position (“7” in the above example):

= The sequential build number:
The first car at Longbridge was number 101. as was the first at Cowley. From then on. each factory continued with their own number sequence regardless of the model; e. g. . Saloon. Van. etc. In other words. each model did not start at 101 and maintain its own sequence. Saloons and Vans. etc. . are mixed in the number sequence along with the Cooper and Cooper S models.
The number sequence was into seven digits. #######. by the end of September 1969.
Last position (“A” in the above example):
= Assembly plant. Officially. “Internal Use Only”
This seems to be used inconsistently on English built cars and it is understood that the car was built at the “normal” factory if the letter is left off; e. g. . an Austin. Riley or Wolseley at Longbridge may or may not have an A after the sequence number.
Yes. there were Austin Minis built at the Morris plant in Cowley and Morris Minis built at the Austin plant in Longbridge.
Note that all English built Cooper and Cooper S models (Austin and Morris) as well as Riley Elf and Wolseley Hornet models were built at the Longbridge. Austin plant.

On Apr-26-17 at 13:39:32 PDT. seller added the following information:
When the mini was first launched two badge-engineered cars were available. known as the Morris Mini Minor and the Austin Se7en. Although these were made in separate BMC factories. they were basically the same car with different badges. grille. and colours. Two levels of trim were available - standard and De Luxe. The standard was priced at £479 and was basic to say the least. It had fixed rear quarter windows. a fixed passenger seat. a bare painted dash. loose rubber floor mats and cloth upholstery. there was only one sun visor. no screen washers. no heater and a bare painted filler cap.
The De Luxe was luxurious by comparison with two-tone vinyl upholstery. flecked cockpit trim. a vinyl-covered dashboard and a carpet.
There were twin screen washers. passenger seat adjustment. a passenger's sun visor. hinged rear quarter-lights (side windows) and a heater. Externally the De Luxe was covered with extra chrome and bumper over riders. All these extras were included for only £40 extra
