The striped seats were fitted to Mini 1000, Clubman and 1275GT in the late 1970s and early 1980s

The GT you have got looks like Denim Blue to me, and for £400 that's a bargain. I guess it is a '79 or '80 as it has a square type chassis plate on the left hand inner wing.

 

Those other seats you posted a picture of look like Clubman estate seats.

Cheers for the info , i must admit however that the images i took of the GT probably make it look better than it is !

I will update the images when i get the car home which should be this week .

 

Any idea what parts would be most valuable on the car if it turns out to be beyond repair ?

 

Cheers

I can't see it being beyond repair. Even a really bad one would be worth restoring.

Looking again it apears to have driprails

 

Could be a MK3.5 GT ? Although it has single bolt subframe and it does look Denim blue, which is a later 70s MK4 colour.

either way your a really lucky fella.

Really hard to see the true condition under that layer of dust.

 

The estate looks interesting too.

Quick update on the GT!

 

I went to check out the car again today prior to arranging collection and am happy to confirm that the chassis numbers and engine numbers all match the logbook . 

 

I will update further when i get the car home and have a better look at it, watch this space as im sure i will need your valued help & advise  ;D

The car is showing 66,000 miles with old mots to back it up and has 3 previous owners (the current owner purchased the car in this condition 3 years ago).
