The car was purchased by me in 2000 as a body with suspension and a few various other bits and pieces. It was stripped back to the shell and rebuilt over the following 13 years, mostly by myself but with some professional help with some parts like wiring, the upholstery on the drivers seat and door trims and the final topcoat of paint (done by Main Street Autos in Rockhampton). It was never intended to be a show car as I more wanted a solid, tough street car that could be driven and enjoyed. It’s not a race car either but has been rebuilt with care and the desire for reliability and the enjoyment of owning a car that turns heads (which it definitely does).
There is a good sized collection of spare bits included in the $62,000 price, including spare motor, heads, cranks etc, spare gearbox and 9 inch diff centre. All details can be supplied.
It has a few things that need finishing / sorting out properly, a full description of these can be supplied to serious enquirers. Despite these, it is very good value at this price on todays market. Its currently on Qld club rego which can't be transferred, and won't be sold with a RWC, collection (car is in Gladstone Qld) is the buyers responsibility however I can possibly supply a quote to deliver to some areas on a tilt tray if required.
Please call me or email email@example.com for any questions, 5pm to 9pm are best, or anytime on the weekends - please be patient with me returning messages as I can't reply to them or take personal calls during my work hours.
No swaps, payment by confirmed bank cheque or EFT. All paperwork and documentation I have collected over the years for the car will be supplied with it.
