Advertised on Trademe NZ in January 2018, this early Gen 2 WRX STI is a rare RA type Spec C - Version 8 Spec-c.This is a hard model to find these days, very quick and in original trim it appears. At the time the car was offered, it was asking $29,000 NZD.
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.

The seller is happy to deal with overseas buyers, and is offering this car together with a MK1 Austin Mini 1000 (restored) and a rare early Leyland Mini GTS in excellent original condition, for $17,500 AUD.
Yellow Club Spec Evo 4 spotted on gumtree in December 2018, at the time asking only $6,500. Relatively high km at 240,000, but has had a rebuilt ]geaerbox, but needs a little bit of work, including a new sump gasket according to the seller at the time.

Spotted on Gumtree in late 2018, asking $15K firm. A very rare car and a reasonable price for what will be certainly a future classic. The lower value than usual is due to the car being a CAMS log booked car, imported in 2008 as a Rally/Race Vehicle. I.e., it currently cannot be registered on the road.
This one's a bit of a long story. Advertised on Ebay Australia in late 2018, it's been sitting there for a while with a buy it now price of $10,000.00.
The story goes as follows - (wording taken from the original advertisement which was effectively two cars being sold, a re shell and an original replacement shell):
This limited editoin WRP10 Impreza WRX was advertised on Ebay in December 2018, with a starting bid of $11,000.00. Good value if bought for under 15K - most cars are still up around 20K. Looks to have had a bit of work done to it, but could easily be brought back to original specs.
Exterior: STI boot lid (gold metallic flakes), STI wheels.
Interior: new stereo, central turbo/water pressure/RPM display.
