This is a genuine Australian build 1971 Leyland Clubman GT Mini built in 1971.
According to some information available about these rare and unique Classic GT Mini cars we managed to provide the following information:
This information has been carefully prepared purely for the Australian Classic Mini Clubman GT, as other similar GT models of distinct from the Mini 1275-GT which were available at the time in UK as well as in other several overseas markets.
At the time the Australian Clubman GT was sold in Australia and in New Zealand in very low numbers, as originally the plan was to introduce it to provide a replacement performance version of the Mini following the end of era for popular Cooper S production.
These rare GT cars shared many common features with their Cooper S predecessor, but they also have many of their own unique changes and characteristics, which were introduced at the time of production.
Due to their specifications, close links to the Cooper S cars and their involvement in motorsport, the GT Minis have always been and will be a highly desirable car among many collectors worldwide. With some exceptions, prices paid for Classic GT Minis are generally well above many other models in the Mini range of cars.
Most of Leyland Clubman GT Mini cars were sold new in Australia, with an original retail price of $2,502 (AUD). However in the early 1973 some of the GT Clubman Minis, which were built in Australia were also exported and sold overseas to public in New Zealand.
