Currently sits on full QLD rego until August with 58xxxkm on the clock (assuming since rebuild).

If you like the look of this ad and love one tonners or old Holden’s then you won’t be disappointed. Now for the honest not so good things: - Paint isn’t immaculate and has slight bubbling as shown in photos in two locations on LHS, can only see it in certain light and is very minor. - Light surface rust underneath RHS door as shown in photograph, this is the only rust I’ve been able to find on the car. - Power steering box has a slight leak and is in need of reco unless you don’t mind topping up the fluid once a month - - That’s honestly all that’s wrong with it, pretty good for a 50 year old car and you won’t have any surprises now. Things ready for roadworthy in your state. - - I’m asking $30,000 for it, I’m in no rush to sell but may adjust for the right hassle free situation. - - Prepared to ship at your cost however it may cost more than normal cars due to the 2 in lowering blocks. - - Located in Googong NSW.
