Purchased sight unseen off ebay (knowing the body needed tidying up and that the motor was blown) from Adam Aitken in Blackheath NSW in late Dec 2007 with Original Hardtop, Automatic, Blue interior (Sapphire Blue paint code 76) and grey carpet. Adam had owned it for approx 10 years.
Plate says 6-74 so it's a middle of the year model. After digging around it seems the mkII as it's known came in 1973 so despite the lack of alloy sill covers (which seem to have come a year or so later) this is a mkII. Also according to Rimmer Bros the 'A' in my commision plate means it's got a Borg Warner 65 Gearbox as BW would have meant 35 BUT after removing the gearbox I've found that it is a 35? What's going on? Perhaps the box was replaced at some point or Rimmer Bros. is wrong.
According to the passport of sale that goes with the car this is still on its original motor which makes her rather special in that she's pretty original throughout. Apart from what looks like a gearbox downgrade???
I used VIP Automotive Solutions to ship it from Blackheath NSW to Tassie for $2325 (Ouch!) but I highly recommend this company - they got it on a monday afternoon and I had it by lunch thursday same week - after 1500oddKm and a ferry crossing with a blown motor!

My engine rebuild has ground to a halt. The heads won't come off.
There are 5 bolts that are close to the exhaust manifold side of each head. These go down perpendicular to the block ... more
