Like the other white over red1965 Studebaker Super Sport coupe on Classic Register, this is a very rare late model Studebaker, and one of the most desirable in the late series cars. This car has been fully restored, in what appears to be the factory Laguna Metallic Blue paint. The car was last for sale in Cumming, Georgia USA. One of only 1626 Super Sports built, this late model Studebaker has the Cheverolet 283ci V8 engine.
This is a very late model Studebaker Daytona Sport Sedan, one of only 1626 built, and therefore likely one of very few still remaining today. This car was purchased on 13/07/2012, and now resides in the Southern Highlands, NSW, Australia.
This is a particularly rare 998LS. Like the Nugget Gold 998 LS and the Green 998 LS, this one is believed to be one of 15 produced in this colour, to test the market prior to the launch of the 1275LS later in 1978. The Hi Ho Silver, and Nugget Gold colours obviously did well in the showroom, with those colours being selected for the final 1275LS. Other example of the green and gold mini 998 LS's can be seen by searching classicregister.com.
Originally a US market car, imported to Australia some years ago. The car currently has the front panels removed, as it all undergoes a rebuild. The plan is to also convert the car to right hand drive. The body on the car is in very good condition with minimal rust, other than the floor pans.
More pictures and information to come. If you have a Chev SS, please upload it on classicregister!
1981 car, grey interior, manual transmission - the most desirable combination. Production variants: bonnet grooves, no gas flap, earlier pull straps, seperate side bolster, black wheel caps and Craig radio with digital clock.
Correct lower front springs and stainless steel coolant tank have been fitted. Otherwise the car is totally unmodified, including original CAT and exhaust system. Good battery. Tyres all very new (still "hairy"). All gas struts work correctly, and the doors do not "droop"
This mini is a late model 998 LS, as indicated on its ID tag. 78 model 998 LS's had a similar ID tag to the 1275 LS, however, instead of an identification of XNFAD, they had an ID of XNFAB. The ID tag also did not specify "LS", as was the case with pre 78 models. This is my understanding of it, but please correct me if you know otherwise.
This car, along with the nugget gold version of the 998 LS represent the most rare of all production mini's. This mini has clearly been restored in the original Iridium Dulux green, with gold stripes (as was also original). It is said that only approximately 8 of the green and 8 of the gold 998LS cars were manufactured, in order to test the waters for the upcoming 1275 LS. From my understanding, these green and gold cars were distributed to dealers around the country to guage a response in order to make an informed decision for the 1275 model.
Unfortunately this 998 LS has been completely parted out, with only the shell left in a fairly average state. That's not to say it wouldnt be worth restoring however. This turned up on Ebay in 2013, and fortunately had the chassis number available so we could add it to our register. However, we were not able to trak the fate of the car. If anyone has any information on it, including its history or where it ended up, that would be appreciated.
About this 1275 LS:

Like many others on the register, this one is fitted with a sunroof, which may have been sone in the factory, by the dealer, or aftermarket.
