Spotted this interesting little Charade and thought it was worth adding to the register. I had no idea that Detomaso had a relationship with FDaihatsu, but on further reading it went further than one would think. One of the outcomes was this little beast, the Charade Detamaso.
Found this GTS advertised on Ananzi.co.za. Limited details in the ad, other than noting the car had been stripped for restoration. from the limited images it looks fairly solid and fairly complete/original. Hopefully it finds a good home and the purchaser restores it to original condition. There arent mant around, and they are a significant international Mini! The late Cooper S of South Africa. Check out the others on the register below.
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.
