This identification guide has been written for the Austin Mini 1275GT, produced between 1969 and 1981. The 1275GTs have becoming increasingly collectible through their links to the original Cooper S and their success in British touring car racing in the late 1970’s. These cars are in short supply now, and demand strong prices compared to the standard Mini’s on which they are based.

Rare 1934 Derby Bentley convertible.

This car was last located in the UK, and was last for sale in March 2015.

B142 –CR was delivered to Vanden Plas where it was tested and guaranteed by the Works and delivered to its first owner, C. B. Hignett, in Piccadilly, London, who first registered the car on the 11th of December 1934.

This is one of very few final series Jensen Interceptors surviving today. Only 4255 Interceptor MKIII's of all kinds were built between 1971 and 1976. This would make the number much smaller today, and therefore this is a very rare vehicle. The car has low mileage, and is also in its original Royal Blue colour. The original colour / code is shown above. The IIIs made from 1974 to 1976 were classified by the factory as the Series 4 and Series 5, and received the best equipment, and are regarded as the most refined of all the Interceptors.

This Austin 7 Chummy has undergone a recent restoration (in 2008), and is in very good condition. This is an early 1928 Chummy, as distinguished from the later models by the location of the headlamps. Earlier Chummy cars have headlamps located just in front of their windscreen, as is the case on this particular car. Later models had headlights located more conventionally at the front of the car.

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"
