1974 Mini 1275GTS

1974 Mini 1275GTS


Here we offer an exceptionally rare South African market only Leyland Mini 1275 GTS. First introduced in July 1973 and produced until 1980 exclusively for the South African market the GTS stands as a higher-performance successor to the iconic 1275 GT model fitted with a locally cast version of the Cooper S engine which had been phased out in other markets.

Just 4,210 were produced over the period and it is a rare car now even in it's home market. Newly imported and now UK registered, this car is an early example from 1974 and is fitted with a body kit which looks retro cool and suits the performance upgrades that have also been carried out.

The engine has been bored to 1380cc with twin HS4 SU carbs and is very quick indeed for a classic Mini. To accommodate the extra performance larger uprated front disc brakes have been fitted, fully adjustable camber and castor control kit, adjustable shocks, performance exhaust along with a close ratio gearbox. It runs on 13 inch Minilite alloys with Yokohoma tyres whilst the original 12 inch steel wheels with Rostyle hubs can also be supplied 

Structurally the body is in very sound original condition as evidenced in photos and a fresh service has been carried out to ensure all is in good order mechanically.
