Another coupe spotted - this one asking $44,990. Likely a dealer car as that's the highest price we've seen in Australia to date. Looks to be in fairly good condition (some tearing on teh driver's seat bolster the only real issue)..
Check out the other examples on the Mark II Ford Escort RS2000 Register.
1 of 33 Canadian Export cars - This Mk2 LoCort is particularly rare. First, it was built in the first month of production for the Mk2 Cortina Lotus versions (March 1967), so it has many holdover parts from the Mk1 LoCort including: 3-rail gearbox, Lotus on both banks of the valve covers, Lotus badges on rear quarter panels, plus rare gauge pod on the dash. All of these features went away in Fall 1967 with the Mk2 Series 1b version of the LoCort. Second, it's color is rare (Alpina Green) as most Cortina Lotus cars were Ermine White.
This is a limited edition Nugget Gold Mustang - one of only 481 built (th eintention was to build 525 but they came short). Believed to be the only one in New Zealand, the car was fully restorfed in NZ. It's a matching numbers car, restored to original factory specifications. If you have one, please add yours to the register!
This British spec Mini Clubman is one of few on Australian shores, and different in many ways to the Australian Clubman and later Aussie Leyland Minis. This is the MK3 Mini body shell, which can be purchased brand new for just over $14,000 AUD - see it here. The most obvious difference between this shell and the Australian shells / MK1 shells generally is the internal hinged doors, as appear on all MK3 onward minis including the later Rover Minis. However, there are many other changes that are less noticeable. For instance: larger drains on the roof gutter corners, a welded bonnet slam panel (as opposed to the bolted Australian design), among many other subtle differences.
The car is perfectly suited for a project such as a 1275 GT or Mini GTS tribute, or simply to build it as you want and fit it out with all the Rover gear (of which there is a huge factory range and variety). All Rover trim and accessories are compatible with this MK3 body. There are plenty of places in Australia that sell the trim and other parts for the cars, such as Minisport's Rover only section here; their trim section, and Oz Minisport.com - which has a large selection. You could also import a cheap rusty late model rover mini that can't be registered, and transplant all the gear straight into this body. This car has been and can be registered in NSW (number plates last registered with are in the images - It was last on the road probably 30 years ago).
A lot of bodywork has been completed, as detailed in the images. This includes new A panels, sills (internal and exterior), floor pans, air vent holes (behind dash corners), new front driver's mudguard, plated edges of rear seat, new battery box, and some repairs around the front driver's headlight. Very little welding is required to have the body ready for finishing and paint, with just the lower door-skins and a couple of other small spots - one being at the base of the rear passenger wheel arch. The car has evidence of a minor accident repair weld in the rear trunk floor corner (just behind the fuel tank). It looks like a new rear panel was welded on - which also likely explains why the beaver panel had no rust - I'm assuming it would also have been replaced at the time of repair.
For the work so far completed, the car was taken off its sub-frames, completely stripped, sandblasted and undercoated. Prior to the front sub-frame being installed, the engine bay was painted 2-pack metallic BRG (2004 Mini Cooper S paint code 895). The intention was to paint the car this colour, with a white roof. The engine bay is very dusty in the images, but the paint is in great condition. The sub-frames were also sandblasted, painted 2-pack gloss black, and re-assembled with new rubbers / bushes. The rear left still needs a cone installed. I note that the original sub-frames which I removed were hydrolastic - which I've replaced with the rebuilt rubber cone frames. The car rolls and steers fine, and has been fitted with a new steering rack, so it can be easily transported on and off a trailer. The brakes are not hooked up (no handbrake either).
Sad to see it go as I've had the car for some 17 years. However, I've got 2 other projects to focus on getting on the road, and would like a bit more space in the garage. The sale is not urgent so if I don't get any bites I'll simply hold onto it.

A very rare find on carsales - this 1985 E24 BMW M635csi is one of only 524 Factory RHD examples built. Finished in its original Alpine White over Pacific Blue leather, it comes with its original manuals and toolkit. Limited information was given at the time of sale, but good to have this one on the register. Check out the others on the BMW M635CSI / E24 M6 register.
This example was offered on BAT in late 2017 - with bids to $3,050 at auction. An excellent solid example of the rare MKII Corona. Not sure of the exact colour code (havent seen one in Australia the same colour..). Came with all export papers and details. No service history, but looks to have been very well looked after.
If you have one, add your car to the register! See the others on the Toyota MKII Corona Register.
A solid example of the 242 GT - this one a 1980 model with the front end changed over with 264 parts. This example was offered for sale in October 2018, asking $8,500 - with the seller noting the car is a one owner example.. Interestingly it has a Holden Commodore V6 3.8 ltr from a VN installed, with an auto transmission (this is an engine based on the GM Buick block).
Although it sold relatively well in Australia, 240k coupes rarely come up for sale, and prices of classic Skyline related vehicles have been going through the roof in the past decade. Known in other markets as the C110 Skyline, this represents a unique opportunity to purchase an Australian delivered example before it gets snapped up by an overseas collector.
The seller of this GT notes it’s been in the family for many years. We’re particularly excited that we’re able to showcase this car on Classic Register, as the only other example of a 240K coupe currently available is asking nearly $70,000 (here on carsales). That goes to show where prices of restored 240Ks could head, and makes the restoration costs for an example like this seem very worthwhile.
Originally fitted with a 6-cylinder 2.4l engine, a 2.6l has since been installed in this car (from a 260Z). It has a 5-speed manual gearbox, twin SU carburettors and a worked camshaft. A custom aluminium radiator and electric thermo fan have also been installed to improve reliability and cooling, and the battery has been relocated to the trunk. Add to that list a new starter motor and alternator, and the car is ready for the next lucky Datsun enthusiast.
Inside, the front seats have been re-trimmed, and are in excellent condition. The trim overall is in great order, with little to spend. In terms of the body, the car has some rust in the usual places (rear quarter panels) which would need to be tended to. A new rust-free bonnet has been installed, and the rest of the car is relatively solid.
