Need assistance on an ID for this vehicle

My normal modes of communication for this sort of thing are down, and I know someone here would have an answer. I still haven't been able to build a car using my own resin formula or made my own molds, or been able to make tires from rubber trees I planted on the porch, or forged a chassis from brass I mined in the backyard, so I'm still avoiding the forum unfortunately until I can otherwise get my act together as a true bona fide builder good enough to interact on SF instead of being a mere hack assembler of parts.

Anyhow-- is this a cooper or Lotus Formula Junior, please?

Thanks for your help on this!

That tall roll over bar is a latter addition to meet modern safety regs.
If you are modelling the car as raced in period, the roll over bar will be much lower.
Earlier Coopers mostly didn't have roll over bars. That one is from the period when it was just starting to be a requirement. Back then they were almost always lower than the top of the driver's head and sometimes hidden by the bodywork. Doubtful they gave much protection, but it did get you through scrutineering.
