This Austin Mini 1000 has been nicely restored to original specifications, and would be the perfect car for the MK1 enthusiast who's looking for something that can be driven today. During the restoration process the car was completely stripped down and rebuilt, and now only needs some small refinements to make the car perfect. All the hard work and money has been spent - the car is ready to be enjoyed
The current owner notes that the car is running and has all its South African papers in order. The car has the correct chassis number, and of course the correct 9AK engine prefix for the South African Mini 1000 motor. The seller is also happy to deal with international buyers, and is also offering this car as a package along with a genuine Mini GTS and Mini Pickup, for a total price of $17,500 (Australian dollars).

This rare Mini GTS from the first year of production represents a great opportunity to purchase one of the best performance alternatives to the popular Cooper S. Built by Leyland South Africa, the GTS was introduced to provide the South African market with a performance Mini following the end of Cooper S production, and received very similar engine specifications developed locally in South Africa. Only 365 GTS Minis were built for the 1973 year, second only to the 1979 year with 263 units (1979 being the final year of production).
This example is owned by a GTS enthusiast who has a great knowledge of the cars, and has kept the vehicle in very original condition. This is a matching numbers example (with correct original chassis and engine numbers), and appears to be largely unmodified, even retaining its factory 10-inch Rostyle wheels as applied to the early GTS cars before they moved to 8.4 inch disc brakes.
The car runs and drives, however, the gearbox synchros may need some work, and there is an oil leak coming from the gear selector seal. The car is useable and changes gears fine, but ideally someone would want to replace all the seals if the car is going to be used regularly. The body is in good condition with the seller describing it as a solid example, with only a few areas requiring attention in the undercarriage. Those areas could do with some tidying up, and close up images are provided in the gallery above.
This is a great original example that needs little work to get it back to its former glory. A rare car, which has a significant place in the global performance mini story, with the GTS name also having significant accomplishments in South African touring car racing.

The seller is happy to deal with overseas buyers, and is offering this car together with a MK1 Austin Mini 1000 (restored) and a rare early Leyland Mini GTS in excellent original condition, for $17,500 AUD.
