VZH540 is listed on motorcheck.ie as a 1965 grey Morris. This yoke is clearly a post-1986 Mini with internal door hinges and the post-86 indicators on the front wings. Nothing 1965 but the logbook. Buyer be very aware!

I think it was around 80-81 when they started stamping the VIN number into the scuttle when the VIN plate changed to "BL CARS LTD"

I could be wrong of course. Mine is an '81 with the scuttle stamped.

That reg is for a 1098cc Mini, probably a late registered "Special"

887FIP clearly has post-1986 front indicators. Engines, dashes, and wheels are easily changed but nobody ever adds later wings unless they were there day one.
