Also in that auction was this South African GTS at an unbelievable price.

It looks a corker doesn't it. A Mk1 MG must be a rare thing now - it is HALF A CENTURY ago that we were all pulling the engines out of the rusty ones to put in our Minis :o

I concur great site

i was looking through it and thought this was cheap not a mini
But then once reading the description i can see why it's cheap Cat B
Should have been broken or crushed
Doesnt seem to have had an mot since 2010
Hope no one gets stung with it, looks like it is a no go as far as a V5 is concerned

I have heard of people obtaining a V5 on a Cat B but i think this one is fu#~ed for a V5, looks like it been kicking about for a decade at least.

Looking at that S African 1275 GTS am I right I’m saying that’s a Morris Ital A+ so can’t be it’s original engine?

It is the correct engine, South African cars used those blocks with the filter screwed directly to them. There's a great guide here to the 1275 GTS https://classicregister.com/id-guides/i ... d-mini-gts
