This beautifully kept 1989 TWR enhanced XJS was advertised on carsales in October 2018. The car is one of those built just after the jaguarsport merger - as opposed to the pre-88 cars which had a few small differences compared to the later cars. There are not many genuine vehicles around, but this appears to be the real thing.
This 1965 Gordon Keeble GK1 was advertised in New Zealand in late 2018, asking $160,000. According to the owner, this is build number 15 of only 99 cars, and was restored at some point in the early 1990s, and covered minimal mileage since.
This genuine Leyland Mini 1275 LS from Maitland NSW is in great condition for such an original car, with the current owner having spent the last couple of years focusing on servicing the car's mechanical components. Recent work has included a new radiator and water pump, reconditioned alternator, new CV joints and reconditioned brakes. The car has received a full tune and runs well with the engine said to be very strong. It comes with the set of 12 inch Minilite style wheels with good tyres, as well as its original steel rims (fitted with new tyres) and LS plastic hubcaps as shown in the images. The car is currently on non-transferrable club registration, but will come with full NSW registration and "LS1275" number plates.
The seller has advised that this example has very little rust in the body, with only surface rust appearing on outer door panels. The sills, floor, gutters and A-panels are completely rust free, a product of the car being kept in storage for many years prior to the current seller's ownership. As one of an estimated 800 produced, it's not often you see such solid original LS examples come up, and this one even has its original radio still fitted. Given the age, the rare red velour trim is in good condition, with only the driver's seat having a couple of tears which would be easily repaired.
As BMC Australia's last Mini (other than the Moke), having a 1275 LS will put in you in a very exclusive club. There is a network of LS enthusiasts on Facebook, and Classic Register maintains an original vehicle register for the LS cars, along with a detailed 1275 LS information guide to assist with restoring your LS to original specifications.

This very original example was spotted on carsales.com.au in September 2018, asking $18,000. There are plenty on the market far cheaper, but it's hard to come across examples with relatively low mileage and limited modifications. This one appears completely stock down to the original rims, which is what we love to see. An awesome Group A rally car, they can cost a fortune to maintain, repair and restore - this one looks to be in a condition that would'nt require much expense, particularly if you only intended to use it as a weekend or club car.
This example was advertised on carsales.com.au in September 2018, asking $65,200. This car has been meticulously restored to its original condition. The motor and gear box has been completely stripped and rebuilt by professionals. The car has been rarely driven since its restoration and clocked less than 1000 miles. The photos illustrate areas like the underbody protection coating, the new Westminster style carpet and interior, and the attention to detail with respect to original componentry. No expense has been spared in this restoration.
A basket case found on craigslist, one we hope can be restored but unfortunately this is a parts car that the seller is parting out bit by bit. This one has 259 V8 2V engine with 3 speed OD transmission. Engine runs well, transmission shifts but have never driven it. There is not much left of the body other than trim items, as you can see in the photos; severe rust and parts missing already.
