Located in Victoria, this genuine 1978 Leyland Mini LS 1275 is in excellent condition, with only 45,602 km on the odometer.
One of approximately 800 1275 LS cars built, the car is finished in its original Nugget Gold paint, with chocolate brown cloth / creme vinyl trim. The 1275 LS benefited from a number of unique features, many of which were only available on foreign models, such as 8.4" disc brakes, the larger capacity 1275cc engine and 12" wheels as standard. The LS also benefited from unique interior trim - only available in two colours.
The car has been kept in storage for a number of years and only removed periodically to be driven. Therefore, the body is in excellent condition with no visible rust. The interior trim is in good condition but could do with a clean-up.
The car runs well, the engine is sound and the brakes are strong. As the car has only been driven periodically, the engine will need a service and check-up. The car is registered in Victoria, but will be sold without a roadworthy certificate. The current plates can be transferred at the time of sale.
The original motor number was 12H902UH00638. However, a new engine has since been installed with serial number 12YDTAH14105. This is a 1275cc block from a Morris 1100S of very similar specification to the cars original engine.

This “Sovereign metallic” Fairmont Ghia would make an ideal and easy project for the XE enthusiast – notably having very little rust in the body. Although the vehicle’s interior has been disassembled, the full original (and immaculate) trim is included with the sale, as are the original snowflake wheels. The seller notes the car runs well, with no obvious mechanical issues.
The seller has owned this vehicle for just under a year, and due to having several new projects, needs it gone. The car has travelled only 217,000km from new on its original engine, and its overall condition suggests it was not a coastal car. Not only is this evidenced by the state of the body, but the cloth Chamois interior (which is currently in dry storage) is in amazing condition. The roof lining in the car is also fully intact and although slightly marked would clean up very well, as would the carpets which display no signs of serious wear.
This particular car is a September 1983 build, and has to be one of the best unrestored bodies on the market when it comes to rust. It’s certainly one of the most solid unrestored XEs we’ve come across in recent times, and even the majority of the paintwork is in great condition. The main exception to this is the roof, which has seen the clear coat deteriorate, and would likely need a re-spray.
When we inspected the car, there were only small areas of spot rust or surface rust, and a couple of rust holes on the bonnet. There is also an area we spotted at base of the rear driver’s side quarter panel which may need some attention before it spreads. Those areas have been detailed as best possible in the photographs, and are relatively minor. There are also a couple of small dents in the body, the driver’s guard being one location. The rear valance panel has been bent out of shape and would likely need replacing.
This would make an easy restoration project with only minor body repairs required, a bit of paint and reassembly with the existing trim which is already in brilliant condition.
At $8,500, the seller notes the price is negotiable. For more information or to arrange an inspection, please sign-in and click the “contact seller” button at the top of this page.

This Falcon coupe has been restored and modified by the current owner who confirmed they completely dismantled and reassembled the vehicle after purchasing it in 2015. Work included rust rapair, new paint, a complete retrim and a full rebuild of the original 289 V8 engine. The seller has retained all of the original documentation with the car, and this is included in the sale. This is an excellent example of one of the final Falcons available in the USA (other than the 1970 1/2).
The car is located in Mexico, and as such we have not had the opportunity to thoroughly inspect the car. However, the images speak for themselves and the car is in excellent condition, and would suit a buyer looking for a slightly modified example of these Beautiful Falcon coupes. The seller is happy to assist with arrangements for shipping of the vehicle overseas, including making arrangements to export the car to Australia where they are an increasingly popular car.

This XE Fairmont Ghia is an excellent original example, retaining its factory “Chestnut” paint and “Chamois” leather trim, making an ideal project for the XE enthusiast. The seller has had this car for less than a year, and having taken on several other projects in that time has decided that several vehicles in the collection must go.
This particular car was built in April 1982, and retains its matching number 4.1 alloy head 6, with 3-speed T-bar auto. The car has travelled a fairly hefty 391,000km, but still runs and drives well, and from a mechanical perspective needs little work to get back on the road. All doors open and close with ease, and panels are straight and accident free. Only the front grille / bumper needs some adjustment.
What struck us most upon inspection of this car is the state of the interior seat trim, and door cards. The seats are in amazing condition other than a small cut on the driver’s bolster – and the need for some leather conditioner on the driver’s seat where it’s showing some signs of discolouration. It appears as if no one has ever sat in the back seat, and few in the front passenger seat. When we inspected the car, we removed the front seat covers for what seemed the first time in decades, exposing the excellent Chamois leather. The roof lining has dropped a bit over the car’s 35 years, with a couple of tears at the rear, and would ultimately need to be stitched / cleaned up or replaced. There is also a crack in the front passenger corner of the plastic console – a new centre console panel can easily be sourced..
Although the paint is faded, a wash, polish and wax would see it turn up quite well on the majority of panels, subject to a few touch ups on the front bumper and grille. Prior to its current location, it is believed the car has been garaged most of its life, and as such has managed to avoid rust spreading to critical levels. Compared to many other XD/XE/XF models we’ve seen, the rust in this car is fairly limited. On inspection of the car we tried to capture the effected areas in the photographs, as best as possible. There are a few spots in the door jams that need attention, the worst of which being a 4cm strip at the base of the passenger B pillar. The other areas look to be isolated and not to have spread more than a couple of centimeters each. There are a few small spots under the mudguard edges, but the underside of the sills look to be reasonably solid other than small spots and surface rust. The roof, boot gutters, and front guards all appear solid, and the only other spot worth mentioning is the windscreen scuttle panel (a small coin sized rust spot), and a 20 cent sized spot on the passenger bulkhead under the hood. The bulkhead is otherwise completely solid.
At $10,500, the seller has advised they are open to offers, and encourages any prospective purchaser to have a closer look at the car. This would make an excellent project to restore as is, or modify to your personal liking from a good base.
