The size of the rear window reveals a MkI shell. Although this type of boot is shared with the MkII, the rear badges belong to a MkI. So, I would say that this is a MkI car (1966 with these door handles) "updated" with the larger rear lights and a grille that doesn't belong to a Cooper MkII (only the Cooper MkIII used this 11-bar grille).

A beautiful Austin Mini Cooper S MKI with the blue California license plate JRB used by Officer Jon Baker during the first season of Chips. JAB stands for Jonathan Andrew Baker.

This face belongs to a post '67 Mini, so absolutely not MKI. We usually name MKI the very first era 1959-1966. Mini Cooper appeared in 1961 and Cooper S in 1963. So Cooper S MKI should be named a 1963-1966 example not a later one.

... and it has external door-hinges and (I think) sliding windows, so Mk.I. The grille looks like an aftermarket fitment with provision for auxiliary lamps (not IIRC a factory item, but I can't remember who made them). It also seems to have the later combined side-(/parking) lights/flashers(/turn signals), which I fitted to my Mk.I 850.

This should have 4-5 stars. It was Bakers daily driver and in several episodes of 1st season. He got truck in 2nd.subsequent seasons.

I only just realised it's right hand drive.

Wonder what the story was with the car, was it built for the series or even owned by the actor? Where is the Mini now?

The usage of the car, according to Larry Wilcox's official Facebook page, was actually his idea. It was a vehicle available on the studio lot (the original early scripts had him driving a customized Volkswagen Rabbit!), and he liked the unusual, nerdy nature of the car. After they changed his vehicle to the blue truck, Wilcox actually purchased the Mini from the studio and drove it for a number of years, and eventually passed it on to his son.
