The Minilan of Barbados does survive

The power of the internet! Yesterday's question was: could the Minilan of Barbados survive? Well, today's answer is: yes! Although without it's Mini 1275 cc powertrain and other mechanicals, the car's body is indeed still owned by Michael Gill's son Alexander who still keeps it on the island of Barbados, and plans a restoration, too. Thanks to everyone for letting me know!
