1978 Leyland Mini 1275 LS

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.

The rest of the car, including the interior has been nicely restored to original condition.
