Only 75 of these were brought to Australia as part of a small Homologation exercise, and we've written about these as modern classics around 7 years ago - and over that time it seems values have staggeringly increased.

This example is advertised through the Classic Throttle Shop in North Sydney. CHeck out the link here on carsales:

For sale: 1981 Leyland Mini 1275 E (South Africa)

Up for sale in South Africa is this very original 1275 E, with only 40,000 original kilometres. This car is in excellent original condition, and it would be hard to find another like it. Its burnt orange paint presents extremely well for original 80s paint, and inside it's been hardly used.

Introduced in 1980, the 1275E model was a popular early 80s mini, selling approximately 10,000 units over its production run which ended at the same time as local South African production of the mini ended. Fitted standard with the larger capacity 1275cc engine, producing 42kw, these cars are a comfortable classic ride with plenty of power considering their light weight.

This is an interesting piece of Mini history, and South African motoring history which we hope to see preserved by the next lucky owner.

Good to see such an original car - again spotted in NZ where quite a few were imported. The precurser to the Evo, and a very competent rally car, the Galant VR-4 is a real future classic straight out of Group A, and is one of the lesser known alternatives to the big names. This example was spotted on and we just had to add it to the register here - a beautifully kept original example with very low km for the age. 

If you';ve got a E39 VR-4, sign up and add yours.

Late model example of the GT Four, imported to NZ. These cars were banned from the WRC in 1995 due to an illegal turbo part being used. WHat could have been - perhaps would have seen the WRX and Evo out of business if earlier celica performance was anything to go by... Awesome cars, and very low production numbers globally. If you've got one, please add ybours to the register.
