We had purchased this car about 4 years ago damaged on the left front guard. It is now in the the process of repairs and restoration. We are going to try and keep the originality of the classic 998LS. We have replaced the L/H/F guard & re-aligned the front panels. Rust from the bottom of the doors has just been cut out & plated.

This ultra-rare BMW Motorsport 635 CSi is one of only 524 right hand drive cars produced, from an already small population of just over 4000 vehicles. Originally a UK market car, this coupe now resides in New Zealand, and therefore represents an extremely unique opportunity for those in the southern hemisphere. Having been repainted its factory colour ‘Cosmos Blue’ 10 years ago, the seller notes they have many receipts to prove the maintenance undertaken, having owned it for 15 years.

One of around 800 Leyland Mini 1275 LSs built, this one in the popular Hi-Ho SIlver. The 1275LS was the last version of the original Mini to be released in Australia (other than various versions of the Moke), and is a particularly significant model, being fitted with a 1275cc engine and disc brakes - these features had not been seen since the Clubman GT of the early 1970s.

This is another rare Australian Morris Cooper S from 1969. This is the last of the MK1 Australia Cooper S Minis, in one of the best colour combinations, burgundy on white, with contrasting red interior. This car is one of around 4,800 MK1 cars produced (and of course there are far fewer around today).

Vehicle Location: Country: 

Very rare MK1 Australian Cooper S in the highly desirable colour combination of Burgundy over Snow white (this combination also often done over Toga White). This was a complete barn find in 2010 - as posted on MK1-forum.net, and unfortunately we do not know what has happened to this car since.

The car appears to be highly original, other than the flares (which should technically only be applied to MK2 cars). Under 5000 MK1 Cooper S Australian cars were produced, and of course even fewwr would be around today. Complete barn finds like this are now very hard to come by.

This is a rare mini 998 LS. The 998 LS was introduced as the successor to the mini S and SS, and was considered a top spec model. The 998 LS in some ways was more equipped than the 1275 LS, with items such as grille mounted foglights standard (whilst these features were optional on the 1275 LS.

If you’re from outside of the US or Canada, you would be forgiven for not even knowing that the Merkur brand existed. A subsidiary of the Ford Motor Company at the time, the marque was very short lived, offering cars from 1985 to 1989, before shutting its doors. During that period, the company only offered a couple of models, one being the XR4Ti. This XR4Ti is one of just over 42,000 cars produced for the North American market, but represents a far more interesting car than first meets the eye.

Rare Green Iridium 998 LS Mini. Believed to be one of around 15 cars in this colour sold as a test case prior to the release of the 1275LS.

The early Celicas have a big following globally, and the RA28 is one of our favourites, colloquially known as the “mini Mustang” due to its styling similarities. This one here is currently for sale on Ebay Australia, with hours to run (but reserve not met). See it here.

We’ve finally spotted another rare DR30 Skyline. Again, it’s in the desirable form of the “RS-X Turbo C” coupe. Very few of these come up for sale in markets outside of Japan, and as a result, we’re betting that these cars will continue to attract collector interest as a rare early alternative to the more populous later models, hence our production of an ID-guide for the RS-X which you can see by clicking here.
