Apart from that rust in the door it does seem very tidy, even the dash pad is amazing! If only I had money and space, that'd look great parked beside Theodore.

Just went and inspected the vehicle. The door will have to be replaced. Totally rusted through, but besides that the paint is in really good condition. Some rust spot bubbles on the bonnet. Car started and idled fine. Interior is in really good condition.

Obviously need some TLC. Hasnt been registered in many many years. Fuel lines will need replacing as they were leaking (and possibly cracked throughout the car.

Little 1.5l or 1.3l. Single throat carby.

Owner is a really good bloke. Thinks its worth a couple K. Unfortunately we know that there is no love for these cars. Took some photo's but nothing thats not already been posted.

This car was originally sold through a local deceased estate auction - I can't remember the exact sale price but it was only a few hundred dollars - so looks like whoever bought it is just trying to flip it.

Ah, I suspected as much. From the description it sounded like it was owned by a little old lady. Hopefully it goes to a nice home and gets cared for, not ruined.

It's now down to $1600 - even at that price the seller stands to make over $1k. Kind of frustrating, I have no problem with people flipping cars but at least replace the fuel lines, put some rego on it and get it roadworthy if you're going to bump the price up by that much!

Bit of an update on this car - the new owner dropped by my place yesterday to grab some spares. The door has been replaced and the paint touched up - it's looking really really sharp now! Love the bright 70's blood-orange colour!

New rubber and B2 rims, other than that it's stock as a rock.

Just spoke with the seller and she has sold the car - apparently sold for $3k which I think is a good result - anything less would have been a shame.
