An early Mini Marcos in Rotterdam

I am a sucker for an early Mini Marcos and so when I came across the pictures below I became intrigued. What we see is a Mini Marcos parked in front of the Speed Centre in Rotterdam, The Netherlands (full 1960s catalogue with all the Mini accessories you can dream of here).

There's no doubt it's a Mk1 car with all the right features for that particular model, from the notched wheel arches to the sliding side windows and narrow front number plate panel and it comes with lovely early Cosmic alloys. The Speed Centre shop is long gone (now a collection agency which doesn't like people to look inside), but how about the Mini Marcos? The registration '87-78-DK' is unknown to the Dutch authorities but was issued in late 1966. Who knows more about this car?
