A solid example of the Daytona, thought I'd add this one to the register, spotted on classiccars.com, and offered for sale by Silverstone Motorcars - see their original listing here: https://www.silverstonemotorcars.com/vehicles/553/1964-studebaker-daytona - looks to have a very reasonable price on it too.
One of the greatest sporting minis to come out of South Africa, up for sale is my 1974 Mini GTS, one of only 734 built in that year. The GTS was introduced as a high performance model to make up for the absence of the Cooper S, sitting a notch above the Mini 1275 GT. These cars are becoming very rare, and had a lot of unique features, particularly the engine which was very close to Cooper S specifications. See this link for further details on Mini GTS cars generally: https://classicregister.com/id-guides/info-guide-1973-1980-leyland-mini-gts.
The vehicle offered is currently licensed and all paperwork is in order. It has a 7 speaker sound system with custom wood interior, and its original full beige vinyl seats. The body requires some attention, as shown in the images. The original 1275cc motor was recently rebuilt and has done about 1,000 KM since. A few original items will come with the car, including the original tail lights (late model lights currently fitted), steering wheel and instrument cluster.
This is a complete and running car that's priced to sell at R 58,000 (negotiable). For inspections or further questions, please contact Herman by logging in and clicking the 'Contact Seller' button above.
Up for sale is my XP Hardtop that had a full bare shell restoration in the early 1990s, in Brisbane.
Following the extensive restoration, many improvements have been made to the car. A 221 cid engine was fitted that includes a 2V head, 350 Holley and extractors with a twin system, mated to a manual 5 speed cast iron Celica gearbox. The interior was completely refurbished and the front seats have been upgraded to Stratos bucket seats.
There is a modern radio head unit in the glove box, and a 10 disc CD stacker in the boot. The boot has been well appinted with lockers and carpet - along with the battery and isolation switch.
She's a good honest car that gets used regularly - so has some fair wear and tear spots on the body along with some usual hardtop foibles that these cars develop. It drives just as you'd expect with plenty of pulling power under the right foot and a nice note from the exhaust! With disc brakes at the front with a VH40 booster it stops pretty well too. It has 5 new tyres fitted in the last 6 months and is currently on Qld club registration.
If you're looking for a classic car that's been tastefully improved for today's roads, this is the one. The XP Falcon is a fast appreciating classic, particularly in hardtop form.

This is an early MK2 Australian assembled Cooper S, and according to the Ausmini register was built in January 1970, and complied in February 1970. This was just after the introduction of compliance plates, and this vehicle is a matching number example with its original and refurbished engine fitted.
The car is one of approximately 2,500 MK2s built between 1969 and 1971, making it a very desirable and rare example, particularly over in New Zealand where the car is located. The MK2 Cooper S cars benefited from several upgrades including a full synchro gearbox, flared wheel arches, alternator and numerous other changes differentiating it from the MK1.
This particular example has undergone a full bare metal restoration, with no expense spared, finished in its original GTO Green paint with Crystal White roof. A nice set of period contessa style 10 inch mag wheels have been fitted, and finish off the car nicely. There is nothing to spend and this S is ready to enjoy, representing one of the few genuine MK2 Cooper S vehicles on offer in Australia and New Zealand.

Iridium Green LS spotted on Gumtree in 2020. Needs a lot of work by the look of it. Seller at the time noted; Complete car with motor and all other parts removed and cleaned and sorted into boxes - ready to assemble. Glass and windows all intact. Comes with EXTRA 2 front seats, radiator and 2 front bumpers!. Some rust in floor. There are more of these out there that we originally thought..
A lovely colour combination on the 1275 GT, Gold on Creme with a gold decal. This one was spotted on trademe in late 2019, looks in solid original condition. Looks to be the correct original motor. At the time it was offered, the seller noted it runs and drives, but the rego was on hold. Check out the others on the 1275 GT register below - lots of NZ cars..
