Up for sale in South Afrida is this very original 1275 E, with only 40,000 original kilometres. This car is in excellent original condition, it would be hard to find another like it. More details coming soon, please contact the seller for a price.
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.

This South African Mini Pick-up project comes with a 1275cc motor and most of the equipment / fittings to complete it. The body is solid but requires some minor work as can be seen in the images. It has all body tags present, but no South African papers.
There were around 58,000 Mini pickups built, which were only sold in a few markets including South Africa. Markets such as Australia never received the factory pickup model, which has since become a desirable alternative.
A great project for someone wanting to do it from scratch.

This Austin Mini 1000 has been nicely restored to original specifications, and would be the perfect car for the MK1 enthusiast who's looking for something that can be driven today. During the restoration process the car was completely stripped down and rebuilt, and now only needs some small refinements to make the car perfect. All the hard work and money has been spent - the car is ready to be enjoyed
The current owner notes that the car is running and has all its South African papers in order. The car has the correct chassis number, and of course the correct 9AK engine prefix for the South African Mini 1000 motor.
This rare Mini GTS from the first year of production represents a great opportunity to purchase one of the best performance alternatives to the popular Cooper S. Built by Leyland South Africa, the GTS was introduced to provide the South African market with a performance Mini following the end of Cooper S production, and received very similar engine specifications developed locally in South Africa. Only 365 GTS Minis were built for the 1973 year, second only to the 1979 year with 263 units (1979 being the final year of production).
This example is owned by a GTS enthusiast who has a great knowledge of the cars, and has kept the vehicle in very original condition. This is a matching numbers example (with correct original chassis and engine numbers), and appears to be largely unmodified, even retaining its factory 10-inch Rostyle wheels as applied to the early GTS cars before they moved to 8.4 inch disc brakes.
The car runs and drives, however, the gearbox synchros may need some work, and there is an oil leak coming from the gear selector seal. The car is useable and changes gears fine, but ideally someone would want to replace all the seals if the car is going to be used regularly. The body is in good condition with the seller describing it as a solid example, with only a few areas requiring attention in the undercarriage. Those areas could do with some tidying up, and close up images are provided in the gallery above.
This is a great original example that needs little work to get it back to its former glory. A rare car, which has a significant place in the global performance mini story, with the GTS name also having significant accomplishments in South African touring car racing.
