For sale: 1981 Leyland Mini 1275 E (South Africa)

Up for sale in South Africa is this very original 1275 E, with only 40,000 original kilometres. This car is in excellent original condition, and it would be hard to find another like it. Its burnt orange paint presents extremely well for original 80s paint, and inside it's been hardly used.

Introduced in 1980, the 1275E model was a popular early 80s mini, selling approximately 10,000 units over its production run which ended at the same time as local South African production of the mini ended. Fitted standard with the larger capacity 1275cc engine, producing 42kw, these cars are a comfortable classic ride with plenty of power considering their light weight.

This is an interesting piece of Mini history, and South African motoring history which we hope to see preserved by the next lucky owner.
