Was the steering wheel on the left (USA) side of the car instead of the proper right(UK) side?

No, sorry Tim. To give you a clue, it relates to his occupation. You would have to know what a normal Mini is like (which I'm sure you do) to appreciate what was special about his

Ringo wanted a top of the range Mini with a racing engine - the Mini Cooper 'S' modified to hold his drum kit (!) and to include all 'mod cons' such as electric windows, sunroof and a special walnut dashboard.
So to fit his drumkit in, a folding rear seat was incorporated and the back cut out to make a tailgate - one of the very first three door hatchbacks!
