This Metallic Green 1979 South African Mini GTS represents the last iteration of the GTS which finished production in 1980. This particular car's details were provided to Classic Register by a GTS enthusiast and collector in South Africa. The car appears to be in its original paint with gold stripes, and has all the correct codes / identification numbers for an original GTS of 1979. At some point, however, it appears the 8.4 inch disc brakes must have been removed and replaced with smaller 7.5 inch discs - considering the car is currently wearing 10 inch Rostyle wheels which were originally fitted to only the early GTS cars prior to mid-1975.
If you own a GTS, please add your car to Classic Register or contact us and we can add it for you so we can preserve the details of the remaining vehicles - of which there were roughly only 4,000 produced.
