Is it already registered in California? (assuming you are in California)
I've been caught out like this before! CA in this case is Canada not California.........................................
You'd think the maple leaf flag would have been a hint for me...
Dyed in the wool Canuck!

CA
Mid to late 70,s CA market car
look for rust.......


ha.... lol just noticed year in title

my first car ever was a 77 MINI
looks like indicators are mounted to body 
originally they would have been mounted to the bumper
They moved to the grill in 78
