FOR SALE: 1978 Leyland Mini 1275LS shell. This belongs to a friend of mine, and after 17 years, he is parting with it in hope that someone else may want to take over the project. The shell, like most 1275LS cars, does have rust, but is repairable. If anyone is interested, please call Ivan Glasby on 0414593314. The car is located in Riverstone, NSW currently, however, the location may change.
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 LS was for sale in 2014/15, and has undergone a bare metal restoration. The car has been completely stripped back (originally was nugget Gold), and repainted in a ford orange.
Other than the paint colour change, the car is largely original. Its a shame the colour was not kept original, but anyway, it makes for an interesting looking 1275LS. Engine was also fitted with a webber carby (stock should be a 1.5" SU carby.
Amazing condition - hopefully finds a buyer soon. If anyone finds out who buys the car, let me know so we can get some further details.
We have had this LS since around 2005, after finding it for sale on a Mosman street in Sydney. It has had a large amount of work done to it prior to our purchase, and thankfully has been restored in its original Hi-Ho silver colour. A few other chromed bits and pieces in the engine bay, and extra painted parts too (they went with a bright blue theme on accessories). The car had hotwire mags, which have now been replaced by the original LS wheels.
Boat Name: Hoona

We got this 1960 Halvorsen sea skiff in early 2014, after finding it in Lovett Bay (Pittwater). Unfortunately, the boat had been poorly maintained for several years, but was thankfully kept afloat by a local boat builder until we took it out of the water.
This 998LS was on Ebay, January 2014. The car appears to be completely original, other than its white paint. The blue 998LS cars were the most common of the 998 LS's, followed by those produced in gold, silver and green which were produced in late 77/78 in lead up to the release of the 1275 LS.
This car was for sale in December 2014, price undisclosed. The Original registration was PP 8794. The car has undergone a complete restoration, with an interesting history having belonged to several important British drivers as Elaine Drake and Peter Glover. These CGSS boat tail racers are extremely rare now, and any additional details on the car would be appreciated.
