1978 Leyland Mini 1275 LS

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.

The LS has a steering wheel from a later model Rover Mini (originally had the Formula GT wheel), and has a bit of rust, but nothing beyond repair. If anyone knows where this car ended up or has more details they can send us for the register, please let us know by contacting us or commenting at the base of this page.
