MINI Chassis Difference

Good day.

I was wondering if these two MINIs share the same chassis? The reason I ask is because I'm thinking of doing a major project build here in the Philippines (somewhere in South East Asia). There's a (R53) halfcut came in from Japan with turbo or supercharger engine mated with auto tranny. But the ones available in the local market are the earlier 1950s to 2000s model.

Do you guys think it's doable?

Inputs please. Thanks!

No, they will have a completely different chassis, whilst they are both called Mini’s they are two completely different cars.

With enough time and money anything is possible with car projects.
