Fantastic opportunity to get into this great classic car. Off the road but completely reconditioned EVERYTHING. Engine needs to be put back together but otherwise in almost brand new condition. Must say a sad farewell.

I like red interiors... but REALLY!!!!

It needs a red steering wheel, and some red seat belts to top it off.

how much to import a fully reconditioned engine for one of these in a crate from england?
then use the current engine in bits as parts in the future

Even worse, the "Seller" is using file photos from the original writeup of the car.

Maybe the interior is in bits as well...

Paul knows that car - was in his shop for years. Import - UK - HK - NZ - finally Australia. It is registered with Canberra as an import, duties paid, but it doesn't have the green plate yet and it still needs an engineers certificate.
Paul said it would cost minimum $10k in labour just to put the mechanical bits back together.
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.
