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.

Another nice example of the Chummy - this one offered for sale in New Zealand, spotted in February 2019 asking $15,995. Not a lot of work required to get this one in top shape, the seller at the time noting it was off the road for 28 years many of which were in a Museum and has been garaged all its life. All weather fittings including a hood envelope. It is the first of the ignition coil model with the chrome radiator surround.
Spotted for sale on Hemmings in February 2018 - huge mileage, and asking $12,000 USD, located at Sun Classic Cars in the Netherlands. One of the best modern classic wagons, I think this is the first 850 T5-R wagon on classicregister.com. The car is equipped with the following options: air conditioning, electric windows, heated seats, electric roof and a detachable towbar. The car has had only 2 owners. At 209,564km the engine has been replaced by a Volvo dealer. The counter reading is now 468,500km. A super complete Volvo 850 T5-R that is ready for many kilometers.
Another spotted in NZ, this one was advertised in early 2019 - believed to be one of only around 20 left in the country (at least, according to the seller at the time). A high mileage example, but depending on the rust looks to be worth saving, with most parts intact. Seller at the time noted that the car was running. Hopefully someone saved it!

This original example of the Lotius Cortina was spotted for sale in New Zealand in February 2018 - looks to be an exceptionally kept car, with lots of mechanical refurbishment work completed. At the time it was advertised, the seller was asking $125,000 NZD. High, but not as high as we've seen some original examples fetch - remembering that the lotus cortina was such a great performing touring car, with many victories to its name, competing against the likes of the Cooper S.
Spotted in February 2019 - another rare XR8 Sprint from 1004 added to the register. This onw was asking $18,900 at the time. Notably the quickest Australian Ford in its day - quicker than the GT, having the same engine but a lot less weight. This example has a few modifications, including the body kit, and what looks to be modified front seat trim.

Lots of GTOs spotted recently, but never seen one this nice! Less than 1000km according to the original advertisement, and looks stock as a rock. Restored to its original colour (was painted silver at some point), and it has had some rust repairs according to the seller at the time it was advertised. A bit of other work also done - t, new front screen, brake booster reconditioned, new clutch, wiring sorted out, front seats recovered, new carpets etc.
