This is an interesting mini who's body may not in fact be an LS. The LS ID tag appears to be attached to the shell using aftermarket screws, and there do not appear to be flare backing panels extending down the front mudguard edge, suggesting that the shell may be a standard Leyland mini. Either way, the ID tag is LS, and it makes it onto the register for that reason.
This is the last 1275LS to be produced, and obviously the highest chassis number known. This car is quite well known, being located at the Birdwood motor museum Australian Motor Museum in South Australia. The car was donated by Leyland at the end of mini production. Unlike the previous ten cars to this one, this car was not actually fitted with a plaque on the dash confirming it was the last made - only the cars sold externally through delaers had these plaques.
Rare original Silver Blue Leyland Mini 998LS. One of the last Australian built Mini's. Vehicle is currently located in Tasmania, Australia and is under restoration. For those interested in these cars, an identification guide for the Leyland Mini 998LS can be found here:
This 1275LS found found on Ausmini forums in 2014/2015 - the owner has now contacted us advising of the car's progress, having undergone restoration work since it was initially spotted, including rust removal, new paint, 1293cc engine, refurbished 8.4" disc brakes, new headlining and burr-walnut dash. Restoration is hoped to be completed by September / October 2016.
Genuine R32 GTR V-Spec, one of only 1453 made in 1993, just prior to the introduction of the V-spec 2, and the end of R32 production..
This has been described as largely original. Factory fitted Brembo brakes.
Power FC D-Jetro with boost controller, running standard tune and stock boost. The turbo's were apparently replaced at 100,000km, along with the Timing belt.
If you have a R32 GTR V spec you would like to add, please sign up and put it on, so we can continue to maintain better records for these rare cars!
This 1275LS was for sale in September 2015, located in Wollongong NSW. The car appears to have a variation of the Hi-Ho silver paint, with a sort of olive finish to it. Originally, the car would have been the standard Hi-Ho Silver.
The engine is questionable. It appears to have a small plate over the engine number area, and the number listed in the sale advertisement is not a 1275LS number, so it may indeed be a non original engine. Original engines should have the prefix beginning 12H902.
This is one of just two 1948 4 door convertible Humber Pullman cars produced for the 1954 Royal Tour of Australia, with bodies built by H. J. Mulliner. Images of the Pullman convertible during the tour are attached. It is understood that the twin car to this has been fully restored, whilst this car was found left in a paddock for many years, until being aquired around 2010 for restoration. The convertible humbers were used amongst other Humbers including hard tops and a laundelette.
This 1275LS has had a lot of money put into it, being slightly modified in several areas from the original. The car has a RHS tank installed, as well as four wheel disc brakes (the fronts were always standard on the 1275LS, but the rears are not!). The car also has extra wide wheel arches and 13" wheels, as opposed to the standard 12" x 5.5" wheels. Twin carbies have been installed, noting that the original cars came with just a single 1.5" SU.
