The car was owned by our father from 1964 until his passing in 2010. In 2017 the family decided to get the car running again.
Brake system has been overhauled (including copper brake pipes replaced); Clutch slave cylinder; New exhaust system; Replaced front suspension bushes, wishbones, ball joints, pins etc; New water pump; New brake booster; New tyres. All up approx. $12000. All receipts are available.
Interior is in very good condition. Carpets & seat upholstery all replaced. Soft top & also a tonneau cover. Spoked wheels. Box of spare parts. 70000 miles. Registered until June 2019, car is running & driveable, but will be sold unregistered as won’t pass road worthy due to oil leaks.
The family has now decided the car needs to go to someone else to enjoy. Hopefully a club member. We are open to reasonable offers. The car is situated on the Gold Coast.
The body is basically in good condition with the paintwork cut back and re-sprayed when I had the V8 upgrade done in 2004. The breaks are very poor but may just need new pads or linings (I'm not a mechanic). The headlights don't pop up when switched on (but the lights operate) but they do pop up and down when the 'flash' is activated. The clutch, gearbox and diff are okay. The engine starts easily and has plenty of power, but overheats easily. The cabin is poor and nothing therein has been upgraded. The driver's seat is particularly bad.
I bought the car new in the latter half of 1980 (it's a one-owner vehicle) and for a lot of the time since it has been my main mode of transport. Now (in my 80's) I find I prefer a higher vehicle that has air conditioning, power steering and other modern amenities.
Regarding price, I haven't any idea. I'll leave that open, or you might suggest something. I can be contacted on my mobile at 0419 011 027, or by email.
