For sale: 1977 FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser (SWB)

This 1977 FJ40 has been with the same owner for the last 20 years, and has received significant investment in practical upgrades to make the car the perfect weekend cruiser for the short-wheelbase enthusiast. The current owner is regrettably offering the vehicle for sale, having covered only 3,500km since the engine was replaced with a new 350ci unit in 2006.

This cruiser is offered with full NSW registration expiring on 26 February 2019, and is in excellent roadworthy condition, seeking a new owner who will appreciate the time, energy and dollars that have been put into the car over the last two decades.

- Mechanical

An engineer complied 350 Chev is currently fitted, with a Holley carburetor, and power sent through a 5-speed manual gearbox with additional Fairey overdrive gears making for relaxing highway cruising whilst retaining the classic bottom-end FJ40 4X4 capability.  The engine runs very smoothly, with all 4WD gear connected and working well. The car also has power steering and a power clutch fitted for ease of driving.

In 2006 the car received a replacement engine (receipts can be provided). Since then, only 3,500km have been covered. The engine operates with dual-fuel through the addition of twin 80-litre (150 useable litres) stainless steel LPG tanks in the rear cabin (in addition to the 100L petrol tank). This provides excellent range for those long weekend trips.

The brakes and suspension have also received significant upgrades. Front discs are fitted, and the larger diameter front drum brakes have been fitted to the rear wheels.  Load variable shock absorbers have been installed in the rear, allowing pressure to be increased under heavy loads or to suit the driving conditions.

The car also received brand new rear axles in July 2018, and sits on near new 16 X 8 GT 8-pot alloys with barely used Light Truck 285/75 R16 Hankook DynaPro MT tyres (including the spare).

- Body and chassis

The history of this vehicle is not straightforward. The chassis and running gear are from a 1975 vehicle, with the body from 1977. At great cost in 2006, a good straight 1977 body was sourced and taken off its chassis. The shell was then fully submerged in a caustic acid then a phosphoric acid dip to kill all and any rust inside and out. The condition of the undercarriage is a testament to this, and having been garaged all its life the body remains very well preserved.

Following the acid dip, body work was completed to adapt the owner’s preferred rear barn-doors to enhance accessibility (originally the vehicle had the lower barn-doors and upper hatch). The factory mild steel bolts fitted throughought the body were all replaced with stainless steel bolts, to prevent any future rust outbreaks. It then received a 2-pak paint job of gloss black with burgundy accents. The body was then put back on the chassis with the V8 driveline and various upgrades. Although there are some minor scratches and blemishes around the body, the paint retains and excellent shine, and only small touch ups would be necessary.

The vehicle is currently fitted with a light-weight aluminium bull-bar (with Narva spotlights), and towbar. All electrics are hooked up and working.


- Interior

The seat trim has been very well preserved for its age, with the current owner having always fitted seat covers to the original bench seat. Examples of the cloth condition can be seen in the images, with very limited wear to the seat bolsters or bases.

Custom-cut rubber floor mats are fitted to the front floor-pans and rear deck sitting on top of the metal, providing for great protection and easy cleaning. The floors are all in excellent condition. In the rear, neat side benches have been custom built to house the twin LPG tanks, which sit nicely on either side of the rear deck, with plenty of space in the centre for luggage.

- Extras

The cruiser comes with a large number of spare parts and extras as part of the price. This includes a water pump, 2 front brake rotors, 4 front brake pads, 4 rear drum brake shoes, 2 rear shocks, Chev vacuum advance, 2 new distributor caps, tail lights, headlamps and more.

For sale: 1977 Leyland Mini LS (998cc)


The Mini LS was not officially released until July 1977. However, with the Melbourne Motor Show held in March that year, a couple of pre-production cars were built in January/February 1977 to showcase the upcoming model. This particular LS is one of the pre-production cars, and is believed to be the car which appeared on the stand of the Melbourne Motor Show (see the final image in the gallery of the LS on the stand).

This LS is a three owner vehicle. The first owner of the car was a mini enthusiast and is believed to have purchased the car off the stand at the 1977 Melbourne motor show. This history was communicated to the current owner by the second owner who was a friend of the first.

Although no official production records are available from Leyland, it is believed that approximately 500 “Silver Blue” LS Minis were produced. The 998 version of the LS was also offered in several other colours including Iridium Green, Nugget Gold and Hi-Ho Silver. All 998 LS’s were fitted with a vinyl roof which unfortunately led to significant rust in many of the cars, explaining their scarcity today.

The door cards in this example are original and check stamped January 1977. The five ROH wheels are original, with date stamps of January 1977. The car comes with the original boot mat in very good condition, and the original tool kit still in its original bag.

The odometer shows 64,927 km, but this is not indicative of the condition of the car. It has been fully rebuilt including the original engine and gearbox. The engine and gearbox were rebuilt using standard bearings and bushes. The car has only done 12,323 km since its complete restoration, and remains in immaculate condition.

There is an extensive booklet of research, communications and images of the restoration and research into the vehicle’s origins, making this example one of very few LS Minis documented from new. Shannons insurance have seen the paperwork for this vehicle and given a substantial agreed value. It was judged the second best mini at the National 50th anniversary show in July 2009 (beaten by the last 1275 LS held by the SA museum). Rather ironic that the first LS produced was beaten by the last LS produced. The car won best original Leyland at the Hey Nationals in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

The car is currently on club registration which is not transferable. However, Victorian custom “998 LS” plates are included in the price, and it will be supplied with Victorian RWC to suit the prospective buyer’s timetable. Offers around $28,000.00 will be considered. Substantial cost has been incurred restoring this car to its current condition. Please, no stupid offers, this is the real deal and there is extensive documentation to support the car’s authenticity.

Please contact Barry by signing in and clicking the contact seller button above, or email Barry directly on bjoconnor@activ8.net.au or call 0407266688. The car is located in Benalla, VIC 3672.

For sale: 1990 Lancia Delta Integrale 16V HF


There are only a handful of Lancia Delta Integrales in Australia, making this a particularly unique opportunity for the rally collector car enthusiast. This particular example was delivered new in Japan, then imported to Australia as a rally/race car. Like all 16v HF models, the car remains in its original left hand drive configuration, and the seller has retained the original factory seats which will go with the sale should the successful purchaser wish to return the car to factory specifications.

The Delta is widely regarded as the most successful rally car of all time, and dominated the sector in the late 80s and early 90s. The 16v Integrale was a significant improvement on several earlier 4WD performance variants of the Delta, including the HF 4WD and Integrale 8v. The introduction of the 16v Integrale saw immediate rally success, winning the 1989 San Remo Rally, and having numerous victories over the following two seasons. These cars are truly a thoroughbred rally car, where the road cars are actually related to the vehicles that competed on the track. For this reason, the Deltas continue to attract significant attention from collectors around the world.

This particular example is in very good condition, with no rust apart from a few small sealed and repaired spots around the front windscreen. The car was prepared by Maximum Motorsport of Australia for tarmac rally, or historic racing. However, the seller notes that the car has only completed in one 2-day tarmac rally since being prepared.

The car has a new Brad Stacey CAMS approved half roll-cage with all paperwork provided. It has brand new Cobra race seats, brand new Velo Hans 6 point harnesses, six brand new period 16 x 7.5 rims (similar style to the later “Evoluzione”), new custom stainless 3" exhaust, new aluminium radiator, adjustable coil-over suspension with new front Koni inserts, slotted rotors with near new Ferodo pads, 4 near new and 2 used Yokohama A050 tyres, upgraded turbo and Tanc Barratt chip, new long wheel stud conversion, new coolant hoses, new fire extinguishers, heavy duty clutch, Whiteline rear sway bar and new Rally Safe mounting kit. The car has always been very well maintained, all electrics are A1, and everything works - the alternator having also been reconditioned.

For sale: 1983 Leyland Mini 1275 E


The 1275 E was South Africa's farewell Mini model built between 1980 and 1984, with this particular example coming from the penultimate year of mini production in the country. Approximately 7,500 1275 E Minis were built, featuring the well respected 1275cc engine, and by the 1980s had a number of refined features making it a very comfortable classic, and a great way to get into the classic mini scene. These cars are becoming rare, and are popular exports to markets such as Australia, the UK and NZ where they are considered very unique.

This particular example is in excellent condition, having undergone a major restoration. A number of images showing the restoration process are included in the image gallery. The 1275 E sits on 10 inch wheels, with custom stripes and excellent pale yellow paint. A custom dash, retro radio, integrated speakers in the dash (and under the seat) and a great trunk fitout make for a practical classic. The red carpet is like new. 

The car's 1275cc engine has been fully refurbished. An electronic distributor has been fitted, as well as a temperature controlled fan sitting on the outside of the radiator. The wheels are fitted with 165/70R10 Khumo tyres with less than 200km usage.

All parts fitted to the car were imported from Mini Spares UK, with everything replaced where required. For more information or to arrange an inspection, please contact Ivan by logging in and clicking the "contact seller" button above.

For sale: 1927 Rolls-Royce Phantom Salamanca De Ville

FOR SALE 1927 Rolls-Royce Phantom 1 Sedanca LWB for sale Australia NSW (27).JPG Click to enlarge

Offered for the first time in 37 years, this 1927 Rolls-Royce Phantom 1 Salamanca De Ville has an impressive history and is one of the grandest designs produced by the marque in the late 1920s.

The car was sold new in 1927 to Hollywood heavyweight Joseph M Schenck. He had purchased the Rolls for his then wife, Norma Talmadge, one of the most popular US idols of the 1920s as a silent film actor and producer. A copy of the original sales receipt dated 14 May 1927 is included with the vehicle’s extensive records, confirming all original specifications and delivery details.

Although this Phantom was sold new in the US, it was not built in the US plant in Springfield, Massachusetts. Rather, the chassis and mechanicals were produced in the Derby factory in the UK, and the car was shipped to the US to have its body fitted by Brewster & Co – which by 1927 was a Rolls-Royce owned coach builder. This makes the car particularly unique, as the Brewster bodies were mostly fitted to the Springfield built cars. This would be one of very few Derby built Phantoms designated with a Brewster & Co body from new. Most notably, the British built vehicles had a longer wheel base than the US built cars, US being 146½ in (3721.1 mm) vs UK 150½ (3822.7 mm). The car’s body remains unmodified in its original design other than the addition of a second matching tail lamp (originally, only one lamp was fitted to the left side of the vehicle per US requirements). The tail lamps are the same as those fitted to the Pierce Arrow vehicles of the era. The car retains its original correct numbered engine (AA65) as noted in its order documentation held by the seller, and other than regular maintenance remains mechanically original.


After ownership by Talmadge and Schenck, the car remained in the Hollywood area and began a career of its own. It appeared prominently in three major films during 1964: "Bikini Beach Party", "Shock Treatment", and "Robin and the Seven Hoods". The car also featured in print throughout the 1960s and 70s. In particular, the car is featured in Raymond Lee’s 1969 book “Fit for the Chase: Cars and the Movies”, and “Cars of the Stars” published in 1974 by George Barris and Jack Scagnetti – both books celebrating prominent vehicles in the film industry. It also appeared in the May 1973 edition of "Playboy Magazine", a copy of which will accompany the vehicle in the sale. In May 1979, the car was sold at the Movie World Celebrity Car Auction. At the auction, the car was purchased by an Australian collector who exported it to Sydney, before selling the car to the current owner in 1982.

 From 1982 and throughout the 1990s the car was mainly used at shows or for wedding events. However, the car again played a role in the 1987 Australian film “I’ve Come about the Suicide”, and appeared in a Toyota advertisement during the 1990s. In 2008, the car was prominently used in a scene of the “Australia” movie, standing in the aftermath of the Darwin bombing. The car then appeared in the 2013 film "The Great Gatsby", as Daisy Buchanan’s (Gatsby’s girlfriend’s) car. It would be difficult to find another Phantom with such a long and prominent film career as this example, with plenty of potential to build on its CV into the future.

The car was last repainted in 1990 with the upper body finished in Shell Grey, a factory Rolls-Royce colour from the 1950s. This colour is close to the colour of the car in much of its film work in the 1960s. The original order/specification sheet does not specify what colour the car was originally painted. However, the current owner notes there was evidence of black paint under the existing silver paint when the 1990 paint job was being completed. The vinyl roof on the car is still in good condition, and was refurbished whilst the car was in the US (possibly as early as the 1960s).

The front bench seat was reupholstered in black leather in 1990 when the paint was done, and prior to that was trimmed in a beige leather (which can be seen in its 1960s film roles”). Inside the rear cabin, the timber work is in good condition, and the beige cloth trim is presentable.

Mechanically, the car runs and drives well. It has always been well serviced, with the current owner being a mechanic and Rolls-Royce enthusiast.

Included in the sale is a copy of the car’s original order sheet and extensive documentation collected over the years by the seller. Also included are the car’s Californian registration plates (9V 89), and the New York plates (856) which were fitted for the Great Gatsby film.
