This Austin 7 was first registered in November 1978, and has original log books to prove it. It has recently had new hood and hood bag, as well as being treated to new 19” 350 Blockley tyres. All the plating has been recently re-done finished in Primrose yellow with black wheels and wings, and it has the original corrrect 6 Volt electrical system.
This Austin 7 Chummy has undergone a recent restoration (in 2008), and is in very good condition. This is an early 1928 Chummy, as distinguished from the later models by the location of the headlamps. Earlier Chummy cars have headlamps located just in front of their windscreen, as is the case on this particular car. Later models had headlights located more conventionally at the front of the car.
This is a particularly rare 998LS. Like the Nugget Gold 998 LS and the Green 998 LS, this one is believed to be one of 15 produced in this colour, to test the market prior to the launch of the 1275LS later in 1978. The Hi Ho Silver, and Nugget Gold colours obviously did well in the showroom, with those colours being selected for the final 1275LS. Other example of the green and gold mini 998 LS's can be seen by searching classicregister.com.
This is the most famous model of all Amilcar's - CGS 'Grand Sport' of 1924, featuring a 1,074cc engine and four-wheel brakes. This model evolved into the more sporty CGSS 'Grand Sport Surbaisse.' This is one of only 948 produced!
Originally a US market car, imported to Australia some years ago. The car currently has the front panels removed, as it all undergoes a rebuild. The plan is to also convert the car to right hand drive. The body on the car is in very good condition with minimal rust, other than the floor pans.
More pictures and information to come. If you have a Chev SS, please upload it on classicregister!
1981 car, grey interior, manual transmission - the most desirable combination. Production variants: bonnet grooves, no gas flap, earlier pull straps, seperate side bolster, black wheel caps and Craig radio with digital clock.
Correct lower front springs and stainless steel coolant tank have been fitted. Otherwise the car is totally unmodified, including original CAT and exhaust system. Good battery. Tyres all very new (still "hairy"). All gas struts work correctly, and the doors do not "droop"

This mini is a late model 998 LS, as indicated on its ID tag. 78 model 998 LS's had a similar ID tag to the 1275 LS, however, instead of an identification of XNFAD, they had an ID of XNFAB. The ID tag also did not specify "LS", as was the case with pre 78 models. This is my understanding of it, but please correct me if you know otherwise.
This car, along with the nugget gold version of the 998 LS represent the most rare of all production mini's. This mini has clearly been restored in the original Iridium Dulux green, with gold stripes (as was also original). It is said that only approximately 8 of the green and 8 of the gold 998LS cars were manufactured, in order to test the waters for the upcoming 1275 LS. From my understanding, these green and gold cars were distributed to dealers around the country to guage a response in order to make an informed decision for the 1275 model.
