Probably the most poorly documented car we have on the register. This is the only image we have of this car, but at least it confirms the chassis number and the month of manufacture. This was pulled off a very old forum post from about a decade ago (found in 2016). If anyone knows the car, please get in contact with us. We would love to track this one down, and upload some additional images, and details. Looks like it may have been repainted black??
This LS found on Ausmini forums 2016 - the post was from 2010 or earlier. If you have any information about this car or any of the cars we have on this register, or would like to have your 1275 LS put on the register, please get in contact with us. Please do contact us if you know the engine number of this car, so we can update the records on this page.
This 1275LS, the 4th last produced, is unfortunately believed to no longer be with us (according to forum discussion on Ausmini). Reportedly, this car was burnt out on Tasmania many years ago - but at least we can put it on our register to acknowledge where the 4th last car ended up. The car's fate was revealed after a post from the owner who had the car in the late 1980s, and was following up its whereabouts in 2009.
The 1980s saw some great touring cars, and this particular car was born from this very unique era in Australian motorsport history, where competitors were moving from cubic inches to turbo chargers under ever changing competition regulations. This particular car is an ultra-rare version of Australia’s XE Ford Falcon, produced under the direction of the famous racing driver Dick Johnson.
One of the most rusted LSs we've ever seen. Found on Ausmini forums - someone was restoring this as a project. If anyone has more information on whether the car was ever restored, that would be appreciated. Hoping that this one was brought back to life despite how far gone it was. If you're interested in the 998LS minis, see our ID-guide here, which runs through various identificatoin criteria, which may also assist with restoration: LS ID Guide
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.
