Spotted on Ebay in 2019. Road Registered all original 1982 Nissan Bluebird TRX 5spd Manual
The owner noted this one has a fully reconditioned Cylinder Head, New timing chain and tensioner, along with most mechanical parts replaced..
Interior is extremely clean and tidy with everything working and no rips or other damage. Body is extremely straight and well aligned, doors, boot and bonnet open and close very nicely with good gaps. needs some rust repairs pics make up description.
From the final year of Australian production, this Leyland Mini is fitted with a 1275cc motor and twin 1.25 inch carbies. Interestingly, the engine number suggests it has come from either a 1275 LS mini, or possibly a Moke Californian. Originally, the car would have had the standard 998cc engine, but the 1275cc makes a far more capable mini, with plenty of power.
The current owner purchased the car a couple of years ago, and has had both front floor pans replaced / welded in. As you can see in the images, there is rust in the normal spots which needs to be addressed. The sills, and below the rear tail lights in particular need attention.
The car is currently yellow - similar or perhaps the same as the original "Yellow Peril" paint available on the Leyland Minis at the time. There is evidence of red paint underneath the yellow, which may have been the original colour (known as "Scarlet O'Hara"). However, the paint sticker is no longer in the engine bay (and the engine bay has been painted black) so looking at those hard to reach spots and under the existing paint is the only way to really tell if that was the original colour.
The current owner recently installed a new fuel pump, after the car started to run a bit rough. The car currently turns over but won't start - likely that it may need something as simple as a new coil, distributor or timing adjustment to get it back on the road. The car is sold as is, without registration.
This would make an excellent club car with the strong 1275cc engine. Parts for the Leyland Minis are easy to come by and the cars are relatively simple to service, making it an excellent entry vehicle to the classic car scene.

This Daihatsu F20 is in amazing condition, the best we've ever seen! It was advertised on Gumtree in 2019, and the seller at the time noted that it was fully restored. It's great to see that someone's put the time into these rare 4x4s - seeing that so many have been destroyed by rust. If you have an F20 or SCAT of any type, please sign up and add yours to the register.
This car belongs to a friend of ours, located in Western Sydney, and we had the opportunity to take a few snaps whilst looking at a few of his other cars. This example is a very rare factory manual 302 V8 XE ESP - one of the most desirable cars in the ESP series. The Gunmetal trim needs a bit of attention on the driver's seat, but overall it's fairly good. The body has bits of rust in the usual spots, and a few bits have been cut out. Certainly worth repairing for this sort of car. Unfortunately, neither cars are for sale sorry! WIll update the images as the restoration progresses.
This one was advertised in early 2019. We like to see them kept original, but at least this one's a survivor. The owner has put some $30K into it apparently, and its engine makes 350hp!

Spotted this one in early 2019. In excellent original condition, with only 145,000 on the clock at the time. No mods other than head unit and Nardi steering wheel. Still has factory exhaust and intake! First one I have ever seen.
The Vr4 Evo 0 has the following features:
Looks original on the outside, but this Galant VR-4 has had a lot of mechanical work.. The car was imported to NZ about 10,000km ago.
The photos are just a selection of the completely documented build of the vehicle and they speak volumes about the quality of the parts selection and the level of the work performed.
Dyne Tuned to 230kw (310hp) and 405nm (300ft/lb). Add a larger intercooler and a set of 272 cams and this build will deliver well into the 300kw range.

Datsun Stanza SSS. Silver on black - very rare car with most of these treated terribly and sent to the wreckers. One of the last Datsun SSS vehicles before the name change to Nissan. Got a few others on the register here. This one was located in VIC in 2019. Very original, just needs a clean up.

It starts and drives fine, and the interior is in good condition and original LS. Body number and engine number match all records. See the photos for more information. Low ball prices and ridiculous offers will not be responded to. If you are looking for a genuine, 95% original 1275LS, then give me a call.. Test drives are available, although vehicle is not currently registered.
Great in Gold - this HK GTS was advertised in March 2019. The owner noted it is the 3030th manufactured GTS of its type to be built at the Pagewood Assembly Plant in NSW. It was resprayed around 2015 in the original Inca Gold metallic, retaining the original Buckskin Beige 18X vinyl interior. The majority of the interior is still original trim. Fitted with a 350 Chev V8 and four speed manual transmission with the 10 bolt diff.
