Mystery Mini derivative (42)

It's been a while since a mystery motor made it to these pages, but here's another. This car was spotted at the London to Brighton Mini Run, last May and I am rather intrigued by its odd shapes and proportions. The registration TNG 696G was issues to a red Morris Mini Estate in 1969, but that is hardly recognizable, isn't it? The flowing wings reminded me of the Austin A40 Dorset, but according to Craig Jarrett, who also spotted it at Brighton's Madeira Drive, most of the mods where carried out in fiberglass. Answers, so far, have not been given, while there was an extensive build sheet placed in front of the creature. Somebody must have read that…?
