This example was advertised on Ebay Australia in May 2019. An original car fully complete, but needs a stripe kit added and a bit of TLC. This one has an auto transmission. The seller noted the car was updated with a later B230E and 4 Spd auto.

Spotted this example on ebay.com.au in May 2019. It looks to be in excellent original condition, with the factory paint and trim nearly perfect, and fairly low mileage (160,000km) - very low for the cars age. Most we see have 250,000km and over on the clock. The W124 coupes are one of the best looking and quality cars Merc built, but at this time (2019), and for the past 5 years at least, they have struggled to pull more than 10K AUD.

We had spotted this one advertised for some time on Gumtree.com.au in 2018, and early 2019. Te car looks to have a bit of rust but is complete and (we think) worth saving. At the time of offering it was priced under $5,000 AUD. Hefty mileage at nearly 350,000.. Good to see nice examples out there, and doesn't look bad in the two tone paint. There looks to be only a handful of cars on the register - see the others below.

This car has been advertised in late 2018 / early 2019 in Vic, from 2 different sellers. Thec car is apparently originally a Camino Gold GT. Several people who inspected this car noted that it had a 1380cc engine on the original gearbox, but had the original engine which is sold separately with the car. The front seats had also supposedly been re-trimmed, but there is no images of those.

A rare 320CE spotted on Ebay in 2019. This is the last of the 6-cylinder W124 coupes, one of the best cars Merc ever built. This particular car is an Australian delivered example, with reasonable mileage for its age. The seller noted at the time that the AC needed re-gassing, and rego had just expired.

If you've got a 300CE, sign-up and add yours so we can track the history of these great cars.

Spotted on trademe.co.nz in April 2019. This unaltered original example of the Galant coupe has a little bit of rust in the body and panels, but it's fairly limited and would make an easy project. Great looking cars and a cheaper way to get close to a GTO coupe. If you've got one of these classic Mitso's, sign up and add yours to the register. Check out the others on the register below.

One owner , original  unrestored condition car 

Vehicle Location: Country: 

This one was advertised on Ebay Australia in April 2019. Looks to be finished in single tone "Deep Blue", and the owner at the time noted it was an Australian (Sydney) delivered car. This car has the earlier 12-valve straight 6, which still puts out reasonable power (particularly for its time).

For sale: 1978 Leyland Mini


From the final year of Australian production, this Leyland Mini is fitted with a 1275cc motor and twin 1.25 inch carbies. Interestingly, the engine number suggests it has come from either a 1275 LS mini, or possibly a Moke Californian. Originally, the car would have had the standard 998cc engine, but the 1275cc makes a far more capable mini, with plenty of power.

The current owner purchased the car a couple of years ago, and has had both front floor pans replaced / welded in. As you can see in the images, there is rust in the normal spots which needs to be addressed. The sills, and below the rear tail lights in particular need attention.

The car is currently yellow - similar or perhaps the same as the original "Yellow Peril" paint available on the Leyland Minis at the time. There is evidence of red paint underneath the yellow, which may have been the original colour (known as "Scarlet O'Hara"). However, the paint sticker is no longer in the engine bay (and the engine bay has been painted black) so looking at those hard to reach spots and under the existing paint is the only way to really tell if that was the original colour.

The current owner recently installed a new fuel pump, after the car started to run a bit rough. The car currently turns over but won't start - likely that it may need something as simple as a new coil,  distributor or timing adjustment to get it back on the road. The car is sold as is, without registration.

This would make an excellent club car with the strong 1275cc engine. Parts for the Leyland Minis are easy to come by and the cars are relatively simple to service, making it an excellent entry vehicle to the classic car scene.

This one was advertised in early 2019. We like to see them kept original, but at least this one's a survivor. The owner has put some $30K into it apparently, and its engine makes 350hp!
