It's been a while since one has been added to the register - this one another NZ vehicle with the unique New Zealand stripes. Looks to be mostly there and original (with correctly numbered engine), it does however have a fair bit of rust. A great project, the 1275 GT Minis are becoming a rare classic these days. Hoping someone picks up this bargain. This was originally spotted on trademe.co.nz in June 2019. If you've got a classic 1275GT, sign up and add yours to the register - we'd be interested to hear its story, whether its Euopean, South African or NZ!
This interesting Australian Clubman GT (with chassis prefixe YG2S8) was advertised for sale with turners.co.nz in June 2019. It appears to have an 1100S 1275cc engine in it, enhanced and modified. But there are plenty of the original bits still there. Would like to see this one brought back to original secs of course - there were only ever a couple of hundred Australian built GTs brought to NZ - very rare!
A very rare New Zealand delivered new MK2 Cooper S finished in Island Blue. This example was advertised on trademe NZ in May 2019. Looks to have been very well restored to its original specifications. I think this is the first Austin on the register which is a NZ new car! All rebuilt to original specifications.
1979 Chrysler Scorpion Coupe 2.6 Ltr 5 speed manual in Yellow with Grey trim - this nice example was advertised on ebay.com.au in May 2019. Looks like a solid Scorpion with an excellent nody and paint, but needs a bit of a clean-up in the interior. Few come up these days and they're a great looking coupe. Expecting to see some price rises soon for these.
If you've got one (or a Mitsubishi Scorpion), sign up and add yours!
Spotted on Ebay Australia in May 2019 - must be the only Chrysler LeBaron Town and Country Convertible in Australia, or at most one of a handful, given there were only around 1,100 built. This example is in excellent condition, has air conditioning, power steering and power windows, upholstery and interior show almost no wear. Power top still works. This is something a little different which you don't ever see down under.. An interesting collector car if you're into 80s American vehicles. I think this is the first one on Classicregister.com!
Spotted this MK2 S advertised on ebay.com.au in May 2019. Looks to be in excellent condition. The owner at the time noted that it may have been one of the cars restored at Mini & Moke World, Brookvale - was on their webpage apparently. Nice to see another Camino Gold MK2 example - a very rare Australian Cooper S withouly around 2,500 MK2s built. If you've got one, please add yours to the register.
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.
If you've got a 242 GT we'd love to see yours on the register. Sign up and add yours so we can preserve the details of the GTs - see the others on the register below.
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.
