Asking $26,000 NZD in September 2018, this Evo 3 was spotted on trademe.co.nz. Unfortunately, no description and very few details were provided. The car looks relatively original and in good order. Would be nice to see it brought back to full original spec though.

Cool little Galant 16L Coupe spotted on trademe.co.nz in September 2018. This example was asking $6,500 no reserve at auction.

At the time of sale, the seller noted the following about the car:
This MK1 Morris Cooper S is an original South Australian delivered car, and a matching numbers example. The paint colour (Shadow Blue) is the original colour as specified on the vehicle's ID plate - this colour only being available on the Cooper S during 1966 and 1967. The Australian Cooper S register on Ausmini.com notes only 25 examples (confirmed to date) produced in this particular colour, and we've yet to add one to our small MK1 Cooper S Register.
This excellent example is offered for sale by Minisport South Australia. The seller notes this is a very original car, and comes with its sales docket which confirms it first sold through Adelaide Motors on 31 January 1968. The numbers noted on the body tag match the bulkhead stamping, and the original engine which is still in the car. The body number stamping on the radiator shroud correctly reflects 500 less than the car number, with the stamping "M2" over "06" also present.
The car is fitted with MK2 wheel arch flares and aftermarket 10 inch contessa style wheels. Otherwise, the vehicle is very close to its strict factory specification, and checks out in every way as a genuine MK1 Australian Cooper S, an increasingly desirable classic internationally.

Further details of this ex-police Morris Cooper S will shortly be provided. The car is believed to be a genuine NSW police vehicle, and the body is in great condition with very little rust (a small spot in the floor being the only place known to the seller). The seller has owned this car for 8 years and notes that the car was running a while back, but would need a tune up, fuel and a battery to run smoothly now. The car is believed to have a 1310cc engine (unsure as to whether it is based on the original Cooper S block). The seller has indicated there is an issue with the clutch - possibly just low on fluid. The car is currently in storage, but should be out soon for purchasers to inspect.
We will shortly be receiving further images and details for this vehicle to further establish its identity for prospective purchasers. Please check back soon for further details, or contact the seller Andrew by clicking the contact seller button above.
It was the Evo V that did the hard work and earned Mitsubishi its 3rd straight manufacturers championship in 1998 under the guidance of Tommi Makinen. It was the success of the Evo V that encouraged Mitsubishi to persevere with the Group A format despite changing rules, and of course celebrate their success through the release of the TME EVO 6.5. These last of the Group A breed cars, they are now among a rare breed which truly represents a thoroughbred performance vehicle. It's those facts, and their relatively low production numbers that have the Evo V and VI in our top ten future classics list.
This particular Evo V is located in Northmead, Sydney, and according to its used import compliance decal it's been in Australia since 2012. The seller has owned the car for approximately 12 months, and built upon modifications made by previous owners - perhaps here on in Japan. This impressive list of improvements include the following:
The body is in great condition, with only a few scratches on the lower panels of the body kit (front/rear bumpers), as can be seen in the images. There does not appear to be any denting in the panels, and the paint and other finishes are in great condition. With a polish and small touch-ups, it could look immaculate. Underneath the car is in equally great condition, with no rust or serious damage spotted. We've included several images of the undercarriage for reference.
This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to modify an Evo to get a car where the work has been done, and is ready to enjoy. An amazing performance car and an excellent option as a modern classic with a huge international following.

A few interesting features on this GTS, which we found advertised on gumtree South Africa in August 2018, asking R30,000.
The guards have been flared, and although the chassis number (plate) suggests the car is a 1978 onward model (which we've guessed as 78), the 10 inch wheels suggest that the car has had its 8.4 iunch disc brakes removed (only the 7.5 earlier brakes would fit). We did try contacting the seller at the time but weren't able to get further details of this example. Would be nice to bring it back to original.
Spotted on Facebook ,in August 2018 asking $12,000 NZD. Looks to be relatively original. The seller at the time noted it has been in storage for the last 7 years . Mostly all original - - - the center handbrake / gear stick cover is from a stock standard Familia . Also the center caps from the wheels are missing as well as the plastic clip on's from the steering wheel . A few bits of interior could do with replacing also . It could really do with a repaint / re-sticker - see pixs . There is a bird sized hole in the grill (slow bird) .
Big bucks but an immaculate example built in August 1980 - this one was advertised on carsales in Sydney, during August 2018 - asking $48,990!
Looks immaculate, and clarly the previous owner has put a lot of time and money into the car - correctly being it back to factory spec as it should be.
