1978 Leyland Mini 1275 LS

This 1275 L has been fully restored and was advertised on Gumtree Australia in July 2023, asking $39,990. Its a strong price, but this car has obviously had a lot spent on it and is immaculate condition. It's not completely original (twin tanks not original, along with bonnet stripes and the trim is made from an aftermarket cloth), but this has been very tastefully done.

The car was located in Rockingham WA, and appears to be with a dealer. The seller noted that the car only had 3 previous owners - The original owner sold this mini in 1983, and the second owner held it until 2020! Over $30,000 has been spent on this restoration - which seems about right.

85 of these rare Australian Minis now listed here on classic register: See them here on the Mini 1275 LS register.
