The details of this 1275 LS were provided through our LS facebook page, and at this stage we've only got a shot of the vehicle compliance plate. Nonetheless, another piece of the manufacturing record histpory for the 1275 LS Minis.
There are quite a few of the original estimated 800 cars now on our online 1275 LS register. If you have one or know the details of one, please contact the author of this page to get it onto the register.
In 2002 a special edition of the DB7 was produced to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Just 19 RHD examples were produced for the UK market and handed over at an exclusive event at Thornbury Castle. of which 13 were convertible and 6 were coupe.
Coachwork was finished in special order Jubilee Blue, with Magnolia leather and perforated seats and jubilee embossed head restraints and contrasting navy blue dash top roll, door tops rear quarter panels and seat piping.
A nice example of a Sunrise Pearl 2001 Rolls Royce Corniche Convertible with only 26,839 on the odometer. This example was advertised on beverlyhillscarclubcom. Beige leather trim with burgundy piping and a burgundy canvas soft top makes a great contrast. Check out the others on the 2001 Rolls Royce Corniche register.
Only the second example of the 2000 model on our Corniche Drophead Coupe register. This particular car was first supposedly delivered to Scottsdale, Arizona. At the time the car was advertised it was described as an extraordinarily crisp example of an increasingly difficult to secure model. Finished Arctica White with Oatmeal hides (piped with Autumn Tan to compliment the roof).
This 1275 LS project needs some TLC, but most of the bits are there including the disc brakes. For the necessary body repairs, a spare shell is included in the sale.
Unfortunately, the seller notes that the car is fitted with an 1100cc engine rather than its original 1275 unit. However, the car does run and drive in its current state, with the brakes needing a tune up. The correctly numbered 1275 engines do occasionally come up so its possible to convert this one back to a matching numbers car with a bit of patience. According to the 1275 LS register, the majority of cars built in August came in Nugget Gold, with the Hi-Ho Silver being more prevalant in the later months, up to October 1978.
Interior trim is provided with the car, however, it is not the original trim (which is quite difficult to source). The car is located on the Melbourne side of Ballart and is being sold on behalf of a friend. Please contact James for further information by clicking the contact seller button above.
