Austin mini 1275 GT
registered 1st sept 1978
We have checked the chassis number and the Vin number matches as per the log book to be a genuine 1275GT,
The commission number on the body has proven to be a challenge as theres not so much information around to check it on the
12" wheel clubman gt, although checking out what is out there shows many other Gts out there have the same D20S commission number,
We cannot confirm the mileage and there is no history with the car apart from the V5 and current mot
This car is very solid the previous owner has had a lot of work done erradicating rust, although it has not been done to concours standard, there are oversills on the car, but there is no evidence the old sills are still underneath thankfully! oddly the engine bay and boot area have been painted white, but i can confirm the car is denim blue from new with pictures to confirm
As can be seen in the pictures the paint work is two shades of denim blue where the front has been repainted, there are shallow dents n the roof panel and some around the body work, overall it is solid only a few rust bubbles here and there including in the roof gutters,
Running gear, the subframes are in excellent condition and all the suspension and brakes have had overall work in recent years, including new metal brake lines, braided flexi hoses, suspension has had new bushes,
Engine and gearbox are the A+ series engine, the car originally came into us with this engine fitted with running issues and this was found to be a A+ unit that had been fitted with a race camshaft and belt drive on an otherwise worn out engine, we rebuilt this unit with new pistons, new bearings throughout, all parts to re-instate the timing chain setup and a metro 1300 camshaft which is the closest to a GT cam with another 4 degrees lift. rebuilt unleaded cylinder head, gearbox stripped and serviced, it has covered only 20 miles since done so is stlll in running in mode.
The car was equipped with a stage 1 RC40 kit with Su hif44 carb, the carb was replaced with a more serviceable item and along with electronic ignition.
the car was motd after completion so has 12 months mot.
The interior has seats/ steering wheel from a mini italian job, recent black door and rear trim panels, the dash area has trim missing but original clocks are present and working, we are looking at installing a wood dash to tidy up this area, pics to follow.
To sum up this a solid Gt with excellent potential to be sorted back to a more original example, as values are only increasing with mint original Gts now around 20/ 30k this car is priced to suit, bearing in mind its ready to drive away and is totally usable as is.
As we have workshop facilities we would be happy to put the car on our lift so interested parties can carry out a close inspection of the car on request by appt.
Contact andy at MLMotorsport for any queries or request pictures of any area of the car required. more pictures will be added through the coming week.
