1978 LS1275 rebuilt from the ground up. Stripped back to the metal. All rust cut out & replaced with steel.

Interior rebuilt, new carpet, headliner & seats rebuilt ( could not replace with the original fabric ) Door cards are untouched. Modern Dat/ bluetooth radio with classic look fitted. Paint is colour matched to HIHO Silver from 1978, side decals & pinstrip custom made.
Another nice example of the Chummy - this one offered for sale in New Zealand, spotted in February 2019 asking $15,995. Not a lot of work required to get this one in top shape, the seller at the time noting it was off the road for 28 years many of which were in a Museum and has been garaged all its life. All weather fittings including a hood envelope. It is the first of the ignition coil model with the chrome radiator surround.
Another spotted in NZ, this one was advertised in early 2019 - believed to be one of only around 20 left in the country (at least, according to the seller at the time). A high mileage example, but depending on the rust looks to be worth saving, with most parts intact. Seller at the time noted that the car was running. Hopefully someone saved it!

This original example of the Lotius Cortina was spotted for sale in New Zealand in February 2018 - looks to be an exceptionally kept car, with lots of mechanical refurbishment work completed. At the time it was advertised, the seller was asking $125,000 NZD. High, but not as high as we've seen some original examples fetch - remembering that the lotus cortina was such a great performing touring car, with many victories to its name, competing against the likes of the Cooper S.
Lots of GTOs spotted recently, but never seen one this nice! Less than 1000km according to the original advertisement, and looks stock as a rock. Restored to its original colour (was painted silver at some point), and it has had some rust repairs according to the seller at the time it was advertised. A bit of other work also done - t, new front screen, brake booster reconditioned, new clutch, wiring sorted out, front seats recovered, new carpets etc.
Spotted on Yahoo auctions in February 2019, asking 550,000 JPY. Looks to be a complete car, but if the hood is anything to go by, there'd be a lot of rust throughout.. Not many of these GTOs around, nice to see one still together.
This Galant GTO shell was spotted on Yaho JP auctions in February 2019. Hopefully someone can put it back together, presuming the rust isnt too bad! Not many of these around, and only a few come up every couple of months in Japan - hugely desireable around the world now, and a nice alternative to the more common Datsun 240Zs.
If you have one, sign up and add your car to the register. Check out the others on the Mitsubishi Galant GTO GSR register.
Spotted on Ebay in January 2018, this rare TAFT F20 appears largely original - and fairly rust free. Most of them we see have hardly any panel left! A classic SAB 4X4, ready for a tough challenge, these cars are an interesting and rare alternative to the early Suzuki Sierras and other small Jeeps. If you have one, sign up and add yours to the register!
