For sale: 1977 FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser (SWB)

This 1977 FJ40 has been with the same owner for the last 20 years, and has received significant investment in practical upgrades to make the car the perfect weekend cruiser for the short-wheelbase enthusiast. The current owner is regrettably offering the vehicle for sale, having covered only 3,500km since the engine was replaced with a new 350ci unit in 2006.

This cruiser is offered with full NSW registration expiring on 26 February 2019, and is in excellent roadworthy condition, seeking a new owner who will appreciate the time, energy and dollars that have been put into the car over the last two decades.

- Mechanical

An engineer complied 350 Chev is currently fitted, with a Holley carburetor, and power sent through a 5-speed manual gearbox with additional Fairey overdrive gears making for relaxing highway cruising whilst retaining the classic bottom-end FJ40 4X4 capability.  The engine runs very smoothly, with all 4WD gear connected and working well. The car also has power steering and a power clutch fitted for ease of driving.

In 2006 the car received a replacement engine (receipts can be provided). Since then, only 3,500km have been covered. The engine operates with dual-fuel through the addition of twin 80-litre (150 useable litres) stainless steel LPG tanks in the rear cabin (in addition to the 100L petrol tank). This provides excellent range for those long weekend trips.

The brakes and suspension have also received significant upgrades. Front discs are fitted, and the larger diameter front drum brakes have been fitted to the rear wheels.  Load variable shock absorbers have been installed in the rear, allowing pressure to be increased under heavy loads or to suit the driving conditions.

The car also received brand new rear axles in July 2018, and sits on near new 16 X 8 GT 8-pot alloys with barely used Light Truck 285/75 R16 Hankook DynaPro MT tyres (including the spare).

- Body and chassis

The history of this vehicle is not straightforward. The chassis and running gear are from a 1975 vehicle, with the body from 1977. At great cost in 2006, a good straight 1977 body was sourced and taken off its chassis. The shell was then fully submerged in a caustic acid then a phosphoric acid dip to kill all and any rust inside and out. The condition of the undercarriage is a testament to this, and having been garaged all its life the body remains very well preserved.

Following the acid dip, body work was completed to adapt the owner’s preferred rear barn-doors to enhance accessibility (originally the vehicle had the lower barn-doors and upper hatch). The factory mild steel bolts fitted throughought the body were all replaced with stainless steel bolts, to prevent any future rust outbreaks. It then received a 2-pak paint job of gloss black with burgundy accents. The body was then put back on the chassis with the V8 driveline and various upgrades. Although there are some minor scratches and blemishes around the body, the paint retains and excellent shine, and only small touch ups would be necessary.

The vehicle is currently fitted with a light-weight aluminium bull-bar (with Narva spotlights), and towbar. All electrics are hooked up and working.


- Interior

The seat trim has been very well preserved for its age, with the current owner having always fitted seat covers to the original bench seat. Examples of the cloth condition can be seen in the images, with very limited wear to the seat bolsters or bases.

Custom-cut rubber floor mats are fitted to the front floor-pans and rear deck sitting on top of the metal, providing for great protection and easy cleaning. The floors are all in excellent condition. In the rear, neat side benches have been custom built to house the twin LPG tanks, which sit nicely on either side of the rear deck, with plenty of space in the centre for luggage.

- Extras

The cruiser comes with a large number of spare parts and extras as part of the price. This includes a water pump, 2 front brake rotors, 4 front brake pads, 4 rear drum brake shoes, 2 rear shocks, Chev vacuum advance, 2 new distributor caps, tail lights, headlamps and more.

For sale: 1977 Leyland Mini LS (998cc)


The Mini LS was not officially released until July 1977. However, with the Melbourne Motor Show held in March that year, a couple of pre-production cars were built in January/February 1977 to showcase the upcoming model. This particular LS is one of the pre-production cars, and is believed to be the car which appeared on the stand of the Melbourne Motor Show (see the final image in the gallery of the LS on the stand).

This LS is a three owner vehicle. The first owner of the car was a mini enthusiast and is believed to have purchased the car off the stand at the 1977 Melbourne motor show. This history was communicated to the current owner by the second owner who was a friend of the first.

Although no official production records are available from Leyland, it is believed that approximately 500 “Silver Blue” LS Minis were produced. The 998 version of the LS was also offered in several other colours including Iridium Green, Nugget Gold and Hi-Ho Silver. All 998 LS’s were fitted with a vinyl roof which unfortunately led to significant rust in many of the cars, explaining their scarcity today.

The door cards in this example are original and check stamped January 1977. The five ROH wheels are original, with date stamps of January 1977. The car comes with the original boot mat in very good condition, and the original tool kit still in its original bag.

The odometer shows 64,927 km, but this is not indicative of the condition of the car. It has been fully rebuilt including the original engine and gearbox. The engine and gearbox were rebuilt using standard bearings and bushes. The car has only done 12,323 km since its complete restoration, and remains in immaculate condition.

There is an extensive booklet of research, communications and images of the restoration and research into the vehicle’s origins, making this example one of very few LS Minis documented from new. Shannons insurance have seen the paperwork for this vehicle and given a substantial agreed value. It was judged the second best mini at the National 50th anniversary show in July 2009 (beaten by the last 1275 LS held by the SA museum). Rather ironic that the first LS produced was beaten by the last LS produced. The car won best original Leyland at the Hey Nationals in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

The car is currently on club registration which is not transferable. However, Victorian custom “998 LS” plates are included in the price, and it will be supplied with Victorian RWC to suit the prospective buyer’s timetable. Offers around $28,000.00 will be considered. Substantial cost has been incurred restoring this car to its current condition. Please, no stupid offers, this is the real deal and there is extensive documentation to support the car’s authenticity.

Please contact Barry by signing in and clicking the contact seller button above, or email Barry directly on bjoconnor@activ8.net.au or call 0407266688. The car is located in Benalla, VIC 3672.

RARE 1977 LEYLAND LS 998 – ONE OF ONLY TWO PRE-PRODUCTION CARS PRODUCED.

My arthritic joints are telling me that I need to get a more practical club car, so my very rare 1977 Leyland Mini LS is for sale. One of only two pre-production cars produced in February 1977. The LS model was not released until July 1977. It is believed that there were only 500 of the silver blue LS models produced. There are images on the internet of an LS on a stand at a motor show. This car is believed to be the car, which was exhibited at the Melbourne Motor Show in March 1977. The first owner was a Mini enthusiast and is believed to have purchased the car off the stand at the Melbourne Motor Show. This was communicated verbally by the second owner, who was a friend of the original owner. Door cards check stamped January 1977 and the five original rims are cast dated February 1977. Car comes with original boot mat in very good condition and original tool kit in original bag. Odometer showing 64,927 kms, but this is not indicative of the condition of the car. It has been fully rebuilt including the original engine and gearbox. (Note: engine and gearbox were rebuilt using standard bearings and bushes.) The car has only done 12,323 kms since the restoration. There is an extensive booklet of research communications and images of the restoration and research into the vehicle’s origins. Shannon’s Insurance have seen the paperwork for this car and given a substantial agreed value for the vehicle. Judged the second best Leyland Mini at the National 50th Anniversary Show in July 2009. (Beaten by the last 1275cc LS produced from the SA museum. Rather ironical that perhaps the first LS produced was beaten by the last LS produced). Won best original Leyland at Hay Nationals 2012, 2014 and 2015. Full history from new is known. Currently on club registration which is not transferrable, but Victorian ‘LS 998’ custom plates are included in the price. Will be supplied with Vic. RWC to suit buyer’s timetable. Offers around $28,000 considered.

For sale: 1990 Lancia Delta Integrale 16V HF


There are only a handful of Lancia Delta Integrales in Australia, making this a particularly unique opportunity for the rally collector car enthusiast. This particular example was delivered new in Japan, then imported to Australia as a rally/race car. Like all 16v HF models, the car remains in its original left hand drive configuration, and the seller has retained the original factory seats which will go with the sale should the successful purchaser wish to return the car to factory specifications.

The Delta is widely regarded as the most successful rally car of all time, and dominated the sector in the late 80s and early 90s. The 16v Integrale was a significant improvement on several earlier 4WD performance variants of the Delta, including the HF 4WD and Integrale 8v. The introduction of the 16v Integrale saw immediate rally success, winning the 1989 San Remo Rally, and having numerous victories over the following two seasons. These cars are truly a thoroughbred rally car, where the road cars are actually related to the vehicles that competed on the track. For this reason, the Deltas continue to attract significant attention from collectors around the world.

This particular example is in very good condition, with no rust apart from a few small sealed and repaired spots around the front windscreen. The car was prepared by Maximum Motorsport of Australia for tarmac rally, or historic racing. However, the seller notes that the car has only completed in one 2-day tarmac rally since being prepared.

The car has a new Brad Stacey CAMS approved half roll-cage with all paperwork provided. It has brand new Cobra race seats, brand new Velo Hans 6 point harnesses, six brand new period 16 x 7.5 rims (similar style to the later “Evoluzione”), new custom stainless 3" exhaust, new aluminium radiator, adjustable coil-over suspension with new front Koni inserts, slotted rotors with near new Ferodo pads, 4 near new and 2 used Yokohama A050 tyres, upgraded turbo and Tanc Barratt chip, new long wheel stud conversion, new coolant hoses, new fire extinguishers, heavy duty clutch, Whiteline rear sway bar and new Rally Safe mounting kit. The car has always been very well maintained, all electrics are A1, and everything works - the alternator having also been reconditioned.

For sale: 1975 Chevrolet Cosworth Vega


Up for sale is an excellent example of the popular but rare classic, the Chevy Cosworth Vega. The Cosworth Vega is a limited edition performance version of the Vega, and production totalled only 3,508 units between 1975 and 1976 - a year before the Vega would be discontinued altogether. The engine of the Cosworth Vega is where the car gains the Cosworth name, with a twin-cam fuel injected Cosworth engineered top end, producing 110hp. In addition to being a powerful unit, the engine is nearly 60 pounds lighter than the engine fitted to the standard production Vega. This makes for an excellent performance package.

This particular car is build number 1715, of 3,508. The car has been in storage for the last 8 years, and has been repainted in its original black acrylic. The body presents in excellent condition with no rust or panel damage. Black was the only colour available on these cars in 1975. This example has the optional cloth inserts applied to the seats (the standard trim was full-vinyl black). The car of course retains its individually numbered Cosworth Vega plaque on the dash, within the beautiful gold dashboard fascia.

The Cosworth Vegas have a large following in North America, and an impressive website has been setup to support enthusiasts at https://www.cosworthvega.com - we suggest you take a look at that site if you're genuinely interested in the car.
