About this 1275 LS

This 1275 LS is an interesting one with a vinyl roof.  I was aware that 998 LS cars often came with factory vinyl roof covering, however, I was not aware this was continued on the 1275 LS. This may be a custom job, however, if anyone is aware whether this was done on the 1275 cars from the factory, that information would be appreciated.

We do not have all the details of this car, however, we do have the beginning of the chassis number for reference. If anyone knows the car, please let us know the remaining chassis and engine number details. Based on the start of the chassis number we have, I have estimated that this car was produced in August 1978.

About this 1275 LS

Here is a very clean example of a restored 1275 LS. The owner has opted to do away with the 12" steel rims, and replace them with 12" minilites, which is a very common move, and thankfully to LS collectors, has made the original steel rims and hubcaps in reasonable supply on gumtree and ebay over the years.

About this 1275 LS

This is a particularly interesting 1275 LS, given that the entire body shell has been de seemed, with even the wheel arch flares moulded into the bodywork. A lot of work has been done to achieve this, and the car looks amazing, but unfortunately these modifications have come at the cost of some of the cars originality.

This 1275 LS appears in very good condition, suggesting it has been restored to original condition at some point. Surprisingly, the restorer was able to obtain some original trim - the corduroy style red fabric in the silver cars, which as far as I am aware, does not exist anymore.

A common additional feature on the 70's minis was the rear window louvre. These were a factory option, however, were often purchased separately and added to the cars. There seem to be a large number of louvre's which come up on ebay and gumtree for mini's in Australia from time to time.

About this 1275 LS

This is a very original, unrestrored 1275 LS which was for sale on Ebay in November 2012.  The car appears to have been sitting for a while, and everything seems original. Unfortunately, the car has suffered terrible amounts of rust, but would be salvagable. I do hope someone ended up saving this car - please contact us if you know where this one ended up, so we can update the details here on the register.
