We are very pleased to offer the now very rare and iconic Austin Mini 1275 GT. Early examples of these fantastic machines are seldom seem and have reached a high status amongst not just Classic Mini enthusiasts but across the Classic car scene and rightly so. GT’s are excellent fun to drive and they offer a real slice of Seventies motoring whilst being very useable at the same time. Our 73 GT is finished in Bracken Yellow with contrasting black trim and the correct Ro-style wheels with a four new wider profile Falken tyres. It also has its original FE number on the inner wing and now fitted with a later A series engine.

On the road is where the fun starts. This Mini is awesome to drive and I can vouch for that as I have been using this Mini. The 1275 engine is super smooth and it delivers impressive power throughout the rev band with a smooth and precise gearbox, It has a stage one kit fitted with a side exit Maniflow exhaust which gives it the correct burble. This GT really flies and will make you smile as much as it has me, it keeps up with pretty much everything in its path! These early cars were also fitted with Cooper S disc brakes and ten inch wheels offering the pure Mini driving experience.

The interior has recently benefiited form a full re-trim, which has included the front and rear seats and door cards which have been finished in a period style. We have also just treated it to a brand new roof liner and sun visors. The rest is original GT spec, spartan and purposeful, three clock binnacle with a 120 MPH speedo which indicates its intentions given the chance and the original three spoke steering wheel, being an early example it also has the push button screen wash on the switch panel.

As you can see form the pics, this GT has fantastic looks, the paintwork is well presneted and it belies its 47 year old vintage. This is a unrestored survivor example that is presneted in ready to use condition with scope to improve in the future, but thats not the point of this car. It can be driven and enjoyed for many years as it is and it is certainly not a trailer queen, it has a solid shell and subframes and has a long no advisory MOT. This GT offers its new keeper the true fun GT driving experience and gains them entrance to a very rare Mini club.

We have fully serviced, checked and driven this Mini and as mentioned it has a long MOT. It is of course registered as historic and is MOT and Tax exmept. It is ready to go and be enjoyed.
