This genuine Leyland Mini 1275 LS from Maitland NSW is in great condition for such an original car, with the current owner having spent the last couple of years focusing on servicing the car's mechanical components. Recent work has included a new radiator and water pump, reconditioned alternator, new CV joints and reconditioned brakes. The car has received a full tune and runs well with the engine said to be very strong. It comes with the set of 12 inch Minilite style wheels with good tyres, as well as its original steel rims (fitted with new tyres) and LS plastic hubcaps as shown in the images. The car is currently on non-transferrable club registration, but will come with full NSW registration and "LS1275" number plates.
The seller has advised that this example has very little rust in the body, with only surface rust appearing on outer door panels. The sills, floor, gutters and A-panels are completely rust free, a product of the car being kept in storage for many years prior to the current seller's ownership. As one of an estimated 800 produced, it's not often you see such solid original LS examples come up, and this one even has its original radio still fitted. Given the age, the rare red velour trim is in good condition, with only the driver's seat having a couple of tears which would be easily repaired.
As BMC Australia's last Mini (other than the Moke), having a 1275 LS will put in you in a very exclusive club. There is a network of LS enthusiasts on Facebook, and Classic Register maintains an original vehicle register for the LS cars, along with a detailed 1275 LS information guide to assist with restoring your LS to original specifications.
